The cheerful figure skater from Tampere begins to market her hometown. The city of Tampere, Kiira Korpi and the Finnish figure skating association made an agreement which aims to support Kiira on her career and to enable Tampere to use her publicity value to enhance the positive image of the city.

City of Tampere can use Kiira’s name, image and statements on marketing, they believe Korpi is perfect figurehead for Tampere when presenting the city as a sports town.

Korpi will also be used as spokesperson for projects related to health and well-being, as well as on campaigns aimed to children, youth and students. Appearances and participations to campaigns are planned so that those will not distract her training and preparations for competitions.

According to Kiira Korpi more important than the financial support is the promise to enhance the training conditions. Better practice times and locker rooms will be tried to make available for also other young future stars in Tappara. Korpi’s home club is better known for ice hockey, but it also accompanies hundreds of figure skaters.

昨日のニュースから:

kiira_tampere.jpg

タンペレ出身の元気なフィギュアスケート選手は、地元の町を売り込み始めた。タンペレ市とキーラ・コルピ、フィンランドのフィギュアスケート協会の三者は、キーラのキャリアをサポートし、また、タンペレ市が町のイメージ向上の宣伝に彼女を使えることに合意した。

タンペレ市はキーラの名前や写真、声明をマーケティング(広告宣伝活動)に使うことができる。タンペレ市をスポーツの町として紹介するとき、コルピはこの町の完璧な広告塔になるのだ。

コルピはまた、子供や若者、学生向けのキャンペーンだけではなく、健康や福利関係のプロジェクトのスポークスパーソン(代弁者)として起用される。キャンペーンへの出演や参加は、大会の準備やトレーニングの妨げにならないように計画される。

(中略)

キーラ・コルピによれば、資金面での援助よりもトレーニング環境の整備を進める約束の方が重要だ。練習しやすい時間帯とロッカールームがタッパラの将来を担う若いスターたちにも用意されるような取り組みがなされるだろう。コルピの所属するクラブはアイスホッケーで有名だが、数百人ものフィギュアスケート選手が所属している。
