It should be reminded, that SC “Borets” / ZR Team is sponsored by the powerful medical company. The Centre for Human Reproduction “BioTexCom” provides services to foreign patients from all over the world. The news that clinic became the sponsor of Brazilian jiu-jitsu club has surprised many people. The connection between reproductive medicine and catch-style was difficult to deduce. However, seeing how both clinic and club are in their glory, it can be said that such sponsorship and community bring benefits for both of them.
Infertility is a problem of reproductive health which in recent years has dramatically increased all over the world. And thus such procedure as surrogate motherhood has become very popular among infertile families. At that rate, it’s not surprising that small surrogacy agencies immediately turn into transnational companies. The first sign that small agencies are transformed to the big companies is the acquisition of football, tennis, baseball players, jiu-jitsu and other sports clubs. Companies successfully promote their advertising at the international arena under the guise of good sponsors. Nevertheless, the athletes don’t mind about this fact because thanks to the sponsorship of big companies they have an opportunity to compete in the prestigious championships and glorify their country through the world while they are holding the flag of their native country on the victory rostrum.
