TACKLA and the Russian Bandy Federation towards a comprehensive cooperation

On September 23, 2019, in Moscow Finnish TACKLA and the Russian Bandy Federation signed an extensive three-year cooperation agreement.

TACKLA is a Finnish brand specializing in ice sports equipment. Especially for its hockey pants and game accessories, it is known as the only European ice hockey brand in North America as well as in Europe, Russia and currently also in the growing market of China. Tackla is a contract partner of the International Ice Hockey Federation and manufactures game outfits for more than 50 national teams. Russia along with Sweden, on the other hand, represent areas leading in the international bandy, where this sport is very popular among both players and spectators.

TACKLA will equip the Russian men's bandy team for three years starting from the next year's World Championships in Irkutsk. The parties agreed on a comprehensive cooperation aimed at supporting the development of bandy in Russia, especially regarding the clothing and equipment used by players of all levels. The goal is also to utilize Tackla's new IBP (Intelligent Body Protection) technology for ultralight and breathable hockey gear and clothing. The management of the Russian national team and key players will be actively involved in product development. The agreement also includes marketing cooperation between the parties.

At the signing ceremony Mauri Nylund, Managing Director of Tackla Licensing Corporation Oy, and Boris Skrynnik, President of the Russian Bandy Federation, expressed their satisfaction with the modern model of cooperation, which is believed to promote bandy in Russia and also the international bandy community.

The cooperation agreement between TACKLA and the Russian Bandy Federation is well timed with the strengthening of TACKLA's marketing network in Russia. On September 21, 2019, in Lappeenranta Tackla Licensing Corporation Oy and Tackla Pro Oy signed a cooperation agreement with a company Sport Evolution, a member of the ABM Sport group. According to the agreement, Sport Evolution becomes the main representative of Tackla in the Russian ice hockey and bandy markets.
