5 June
The Champion Sports and Business Awards
Wawelberg Hall, 7–9, Nevsky Prospekt
The idea behind this award is that sporting heroes honour business leaders for their support of the industry at SPIEF, the main business event of the year. Former athletes Alexander Karelin, Vladimir Salnikov, Elena Vyalbe, and Svetlana Zhurova took part in the debut ceremony at SPIEF 2023.

The second ceremony promises to be no less high-profile. It will be in the style of ‘thea-jazz’, jazz concerts with elements of theatre, invented in the 1920s by singer Leonid Utesov. The aesthetics of this trend, which continued through the 1930s, accompanied the birth of the Soviet national sporting system. It was then that the foundation was laid for the triumphant appearance of Soviet athletes in the international arena after the Great Patriotic War (World War II). It was also during the era of ‘thea-jazz’ that the nation’s industrial giants, which played a key role in boosting Soviet sport, emerged.
