Igor Ivanov, Director General of Gazprom Transgaz Surgut, underlined that “the Spartakiada Games became a remarkable sport event for our staff long time ago. This is a unique opportunity for expressing yourself, informal socializing with colleagues, and a real event in life of every participant. No wonder that Surgut hosted the Jubilee Spartakiada Games. This is exactly the place where the wonderful sport event started 15 years ago. It’s very symbolic that also this year Gazprom Pererabotka celebrated its 5th anniversary and Gazprom Transgaz Surgut – the 35th anniversary. I’m confident that sports competitions encourage mutual support and team spirit that help achieve business objectives.”
