Rosneft-Sponsored World Sambo Championships to Take Place in Serbia

05 November 2020

Rosneft Oil Company has become the general partner for the 2020 World Sambo Championships taking place in Novi Sad, Serbia, on November 5th through 8th. The championship will be coupled with the previously scheduled World Youth Championships.

The activities of Rosneft Oil Company constitute an example of a socially responsible business. The Company pays close attention to developing and supporting popular and professional sports. Rosneft has been the general sponsor of the International Federation of Amateur Sambo since 2016.

Over 400 athletes from 30 countries are expected to participate in the year’s key sporting event of FIAS calendar. The competing countries would be Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Colombia, Congo, Croatia, Cyprus, Dominican Republic, Estonia, France, Greece, Indonesia, Italy, Mexico, Moldova, Morocco, Philippines, Romania, Russia, Northern Macedonia, Serbia, Spain, South Africa, Tajikistan, Ukraine, USA, Uzbekistan, and Venezuela.

The Championships is held in compliance with the FIAS Safety and Prevention Recommendation after the COVID-19 Pandemic.

“The Organizing Committee of the World Championships has made every effort to minimize the risks of illness among athletes at the main event of the year in the FIAS calendar. For this, all participants in the competition – from athletes and coaches to referees and medical personnel – will be required to strictly follow safety rules. The first step is to take a PCR test for COVID-19 72 hours before arriving in the Republic of Serbia. The next one is the creation of a “clean zone” for all participants of the competition, excluding the appearance of strangers in it, that is, all movements in Serbia will take place exclusively between the hotel and the arena. Well, it is obvious that under these conditions the tournament will be held without spectators,” FIAS President Vasily Shestakov noted.

All fans will be able to watch the World Sambo Championships live thanks to the online broadcast on the FIAS website. The final matches of the World Championships will also be shown on Eurosport and other TV channels around the world.
