Since 2014 VTB Bank is the General Sponsor of National Gymnastics Federation of Georgia.
The development of this sport is particularly important for us, because gymnastics is a unique sport: Aside from athletic standpoints, it helps to popularize a healthy lifestyle in the country and bears an important social responsibility.
We are particularly proud of the fact that VTB Bank is the first official sponsor of the Georgian Gymnastics Federation. With the help of the bank, rehabilitation of sports centers and halls was arranged. Sports infrastructure has been improved, interest and involvement from both children and adults has significantly increased. With the help of VTB Bank, the gymnasium of the Tbilisi municipal school gymnasium, damaged as a result of the tragedy of June 13, 2015, was fully rehabilitated. Rehabilitation works were allocated 1,400,000 GEL. The federation also acquired new, the highest grade sports equipment and inventory. Renovated center is now called VTB Arena.
Based on the specifics of gymnastics, this sport can change not only the life of professional athletes, but also the lives of ordinary people. That’s why the daily gymnastics center serves more than one thousand beneficiaries, including socially vulnerable adolescents. Also, it is vital to organize international and local tournaments to increase the involvement of youth. That is why VTB CUP is organized annually by VTB Bank, where many young athletes can take part.
With the sponsorship of VTB Bank and the help of Gymnastics Federation, Rusudan Sikharulidze international tournament is held annually in Batumi.
National Gymnastics Federation of Georgia unites 5 disciplines: tramp, rhythmic-sportive gymnastics, artistic gymnastics, acrobatics and aerobics.
