In the anticipation of the 2018 FIFA World Cup™, Visa, worldwide partner of FIFA in the payments category, provided Sberbank with the exclusive right to issue Visa cards with the championship’s mascot – wolf Zabivaka™ in Russian Federation.

With this card, one can get 20% for the purchases in sports stores and 5% when paying bills in cafes and restaurants. Increased bonuses are awarded for transactions made before December 31, 2018 at the outlets of the above categories around the world.

Visa Sberbank credit card rates are 23.9% for the pre-approved offer for Sberbank customers and 27.9% for other customers. When a card is issued, a free Mobile Bank service with SMS is provided with information about all transactions on the card, and customers with a pre-approved offer can issue a card with free service for the entire validity period of the card.

"On the eve of the FIFA World Cup™ in Russia, we expect an increased interest in sports, so we have launched cards with increased bonuses for purchases in sports stores, as well in cafes and restaurants. We offer limited edition cards with a unique design featuring the FIFA World Cup™ mascot Zabivaka™ wolf. - comments Igor Kovalev, Executive Director of Sberbank’s Borrow and Save Division
