The Dynamo Moscow hockey club, which is sponsored by VTB Bank, has won the KHL Gagarin Cup for the second year in a row. Symbolically, this important Russian hockey trophy was won on the eve of the Dynamo sport club’s 90th anniversary.
"The team’s victory is the best possible gift for the sport club’s 90th anniversary. Well done," said Vasily Titov, First Deputy President and Chairman of VTB Bank Management Board.
Dynamo is a major sports brand with a great history. It fortunately survived the turbulent post-Soviet period and remains a key sport institution in modern Russia. Dynamo is known not only for its past glory, but also for its modern victories, of which the hockey team’s second Gagarin Cup title is clear evidence. Dynamo has returned the once lost status of a hockey capital to Moscow. Thanks to head coach Oleg Znarok and his team, Moscow is experiencing a real hockey boom for the second spring in a row.
VTB Bank has built a close relationship with the Dynamo sports club and is committed to reviving this old Russian sports brand. Their partnership is unique on the Russian market, and combines elements of business investment, sponsorship and social support.
VTB Bank is the main shareholder of the Dynamo football club and is funding the construction of the club’s new stadium, the VTB-Arena, which includes the reconstruction of the legendary Dynamo stadium. VTB also sponsors the Dynamo futsal club and helps Dynamo develop children’s and youth sport.
