CMYK profiles

I have to send an artwork for print, they are asking for Gracoal2006_coated1v2 profile, which i already setted in my illustrator file. The client's CMYK code is C:63% M:57% Y:0% K:0% while RGB R:148 G:55 B:255.

So I used the CMYK values for the artwork and colors really changed (i know that it may happen) but is there any way that I can make sure that print and web colors are going to match?

Thanks

============ Not really.  CMYK is for print and the color profile your print professional gives you is for their particular ink and paper stock.  sRGB is for the web.   sRGB for the web is always brighter than CMYK for print.  Also screen color rendering varies by device.  You cannot control what color calibration settings end users may have on their various Win/Mac or Android devices.
