  • The financial institution extends its collaboration agreement to sponsor the professional Valencian pilota championships during the 2020 and 2021 seasons in the 'escala i corda' and 'raspall' modalities in the team and individual categories.
  • The bank has been sponsoring the main male and female pilota competitions since the 2014/2015 season.

Bankia has renewed its collaboration agreement with the Fundació per la Pilota Valenciana and will continue to be the main sponsor of the professional leagues and individual competitions in the 'escala i corda' and 'raspall' modalities this season and next season.

Bankia’s commercial director in Valencia and Castellón, Rosa Piqueras, and the president of the Fundació per la Pilota Valenciana, Josep Maria Soriano, took part in the signing event, which took place at Bankia's headquarters in Valencia.  The spokesman for the Fundació per la Pilota Valenciana, Josep Maria Cataluña, also attended.

Bankia’s commercial director in Valencia and Castellón stressed that “the fact that Bankia is sponsoring the male and female pilota competitions for the sixth consecutive year shows the commitment of the bank to a traditional and emblematic sport in the Community of Valencia”.

For his part, the president of the Fundació per la Pilota Valenciana emphasised that "the support provided by Bankia is essential to keep giving these professional players the recognition they deserve". "We are very pleased that the companies that are present in our society believe in and appreciate a sport that is part of Valencians’ identity," said Soriano.

Bankia sponsors the 'Lliga Bankia de escala i corda', which is currently in its 29th edition, and the 'Lliga Bankia de raspall - Trofeu Diputació de València', held between January and April.

The 'Lliga Bankia d'escala i corda' and the 'Lliga Bankia de raspall - Trofeu Diputació de València' are the most demanding team competitions for pilota players and the longest ones during the sports season. They are thus very important for fans of the sport.

In addition, the bank sponsors the 'Individual d'Escala i Corda - Trofeo Presidente de la Generalitat' and the 'Individual de Raspall - Trofeo Presidente de la Generalitat', held during May and June.

The 'Campionat Individual Bankia' is the most emblematic Valencian pilota competition, since the winner is recognised for one year as the top team of its modality, 'escala i corda' or 'raspall'. Likewise, the champion has the privilege of always wearing red in both official and day-to-day games.
