Jordi Bertomeu stated that the EuroLeague never had any conversation with Gazprom, which is the main sponsor of Zenit Saint Petersburg.
“We never had any conversation with Gazprom, never. In terms of cooperation, commercial cooperation, collaboration, we never had a conversation. I don’t know in the future, but so far we never had this conversation.
As a consequence of this, the fact that Zenit St Petersburg was invited to join the EuroLeague is just because we believed it was a right club for us and was a club we can help to grow. That’s all,” the CEO and president of the EuroLeague told reporters during a press conference with Zenit CEO Alexander Tserkovny.
