Chelsea Football Club is delighted to announce that Gazprom has become the club's official Global Energy Partner.
The three-year sponsorship deal will see Gazprom Energy, supply gas and electricity to the club and be involved with our award-winning global CSR activities.
Chelsea FC chief executive Ron Gourlay said: 'This is another very exciting global partnership for the club, and demonstrates the ever-growing appeal of Chelsea FC.
'As a global supplier of energy with a commitment to the environment and social responsibility, Gazprom is a perfect match for the club.
'Our huge fanbase around the world will help Gazprom reach their key markets in Europe and Asia, while we will benefit from their support in developing further our wide-ranging CSR programmes.'
Vitaly Vasiliev, Chief Executive Officer of Gazprom Marketing & Trading Limited, the UK subsidiary of Gazprom, said: "The Gazprom group is delighted to be associated with such a well known and successful brand in international football.
'Gazprom supplies secure and clean natural gas to clients all over the world and this energy partnership with the European champions gives us an outstanding global platform to further raise our profile across our European and global markets. We very much look forward to working together over the coming three seasons."
The announcement follows on from recent sponsorship news that Audi, Sauber F1 and Delta Air Lines have all become partners of Chelsea FC. Gazprom last week also confirmed an agreement with UEFA to become an official partner of the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Super Cup for the next three seasons.
The club won an historic Double last season winning the Champions League for the first time and a seventh FA Cup.
Through our retail brand Gazprom Energy, we offer industrial and commercial energy users a range of flexible gas and power products to suit their business needs.
