With the announcement of a large Russian presence at this year’s Soccerex Global Convention, a host of leading Russian news agencies, portals and publishers have signed up as event supporters for this year’s edition in Rio de Janeiro.
The event, which takes place from November 30 to December 5 at the Maracanã stadium, will be supported by Championat, a leading Russian sports web portal that publishes news, scores, analytical data and also hosts exclusive photos, video material and online broadcasting, and Russian news agency Ria Novosti (R-Sport).
The communications agency and publishing house SportAkademReklama and monthly magazine Sportsfacilities have also signed up. Russian publication SportManagement and Sport Business Consulting, a research and information magazine about the sports industry, have also been named as supporters.
“We’re very pleased to welcome our new media supporters to the Global Convention,” Soccerex marketing director David Wright said. “With the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia Local Organising Committee, 2018 Host Cities and United Football League all in attendance, it’s paramount that we’re satisfying the demand for news from the Russian market. These companies offer us a bridge to that market and will help spread the word of Soccerex, which will ensure a larger delegation of attendees from Russia.” For further information about this event please call +44 (0)208 987 5522 or visit http://www.soccerex.com/global
