  • The competition, which concludes with a soapbox race, contributes to the promotion of Vocational Training, to which Dualiza Bankia devotes its activity
  • Dualiza Bankia and IES Cotes Baixes embarked on their collaboration as a result of the centre’s participation in the first edition of the Dualiza Aid Call

Dualiza Bankia will sponsor the team with which IES Cotes Baixes will participate in the Hiperbaric Challenge, in which Vocational Training students compete in the design, prototyping and construction of a soapbox with which they then compete in the race.

The race will take place next June in Burgos. By then, the selected teams must have completed all the tasks corresponding to the launch of a business project, from raising funds to presenting and defending their idea.

In fact, the race is just one of the fields of competition, along with the business entrepreneurship itself, the technical project, and social values.

The presentation of the kit with which they will compete took place this Wednesday at the IES Cotes Baixes in Alcoy, where the territorial coordinator of the Bankia Foundation for Dual Training, Ricard Guillem, underlined that “Dualiza Bankia's commitment to the Alicante team is part of the collaboration that the centre has with the entity as a result of its participation in the first edition of the Dualiza Aid Call”. Guillem added that “initiatives like this contribute to the prestigious work of the vocational training to which Dualiza Bankia dedicates its activities”.

Dualiza Bankia has supported the initiative taking into account the objectives of innovation and culture of business entrepreneurship pursued by the competition. In addition, it has also valued the spirit of dissemination of knowledge pursued by all participants, which leads members of different teams to help each other during the race to learn from problem solving.

Dualiza Bankia, Bankia’s dual training initiative

Dualiza Bankia is the brand through which the Bankia Foundation for Dual Training conducts all its promotion and awareness initiatives for vocational training and dual vocational training. And it represents the commitment acquired by Bankia to the promotion of education as a way to improve society, combat inequality and promote greater social cohesion.

Bankia and Fundació per la Pilota present The Professional Leagues of raspall and escala i corda

The entity sponsors the most relevant team competitions of the Valencian pilota, a very well-established sport in the Comunidad Valenciana.

  • The financial institution sponsors Fundació per la Pilota in support of this Valencian sport
  • The two championships, which start tomorrow in Genovés and on Saturday at the Pelayo court, double the number of games and the competition period, which now extends until the first half of April
  • Bankia’s Corporate Regional Director in Valencia and Castellón, Jaime Casas, stressed that "in the entity we are committed to the promotion of pilota and the appreciation of its culture"

The Bankia Professional Leagues, in their raspall and escala i corda modality, were presented this Thursday at the headquarters of the financial institution in Valencia.

The most relevant team competitions of the Valencian pilota, with the sponsorship of Bankia, will start this Friday with the 'Lliga Bankia de raspall - Trofeu Diputació de València' at the Genovés court, and the 'Lliga Bankia de scale i corda' will start on Saturday in the Pelayo court.

The Professional Leagues have been presented by Bankia’s Corporate Regional Director Valencia and Castellón, Jaime Casas; the vice president and spokesman of the Fundació per la Pilota, José María Cataluña, and the coordinator of the General Direction of Sports of the Comunidad Valenciana, Sebastià Giner. The Vice President of the Federació de Pilota Valenciana D'escala i Corda, Santiago Navarro, has also participated in the event.

The two competitions will take place at the same time and with the same format. This edition will have twice as many games in the normal stage, which will consist of 30 matches, ten per team.

It is also a novelty that one stage will be completed each week. This way, all teams -and the ranking- will advance at the same pace in the championship.

Once the normal stage has concluded, the four teams with the best score will enter the semifinals, which will be played at home courts alternatively and on dates that will be determined at the end of the round. The final, as usual, will be a single game. The two competitions will end in the first half of April.

New scoring system

The scoring system will also change this season with the aim of increasing balance in the rankings. In this edition, victory will be awarded with 2 points and the losing team will have the possibility of adding 1 point if they reach game 50 (in the 'Lliga Bankia of Scale i Corda') and game 25 (in the 'Lliga Bankia de Raspall - Trofeu Diputació de València ').

In this new edition, the teams have also been formed with three people. The main reason is that it is deemed fairer that all the teams have the same number of players, since the effort required will be greater when competing for four months. It is also a way of making the sport of the Valencian Pilota more accessible to people who do not know it in depth and thus do not understand why a team of two faces a team of three.

All the members of the six teams of each mode have participated in the presentation, which has been conducted by Bankia’s Corporate Regional Director in Valencia and Castellón, Jaime Casas. Casas stressed that "there is true passion for the Valencian pilota in Bankia and, therefore, we are committed to the promotion of the game and the appreciation of its culture".

"This year, in addition to sponsoring the Lliga and the Individual competition in the male and female categories, this edition has been reformulated to become more appealing, recovering the 'roundtrip' in both the regular stage and the semifinals, so we can enjoy more games and more weeks of competition. Undoubtedly, this is good news for all the fans of this sport", said Casas.

Bankia renewed its sponsorship of both competitions in 2018, also extending its support to the women's championships with the sponsorship of the League and the Individual of Raspall.

For his part, the vice president and spokesman of the Fundació per la Pilota, José María Cataluña, explained the changes and novelties and their reason in detail; while the representative of the Federació, Santiago Navarro, encouraged players to "enjoy themselves and make the audience enjoy the sport".

"Good news"

On behalf of the Generalitat, Sebastià Giner has stated that "2019 begins with a new way of working and the Generalitat wants to bet on this new formula to help the professional field to consolidate", he explained. In addition, he wanted to highlight the role of public television regarding pilota. "There will be a televised game each week and that will bring our sport to every home", he said.

The presentation has concluded with the intervention of the pilotaris. The six representatives of the teams of the Lliga Bankia of raspall, Marrahí, Moltó, Brisca, Sanchis, Seve and Pablo took the floor first. All of them agreed that the Lliga was good news. "The new model is appealing and it will undoubtedly make the Lliga more interesting", they underlined. "With teams of three and such a generous scoring system, the true champion will not become clear until April" they stated.

Finally, Pere, Puchol II, Pere Roc II, Genovés II, Soro III and Felix have shown their impressions with regard to the Lliga Bankia of scale i corda. According to them, this tournament has higher appeal for fans. “For viewers, it is much easier to follow the Lliga day after day thanks to the information and balance there is now", said the pilotaris. "Conducting the matches on weekends will give us a wider audience" they said.

  • The entity will continue to financially support a program to promote aimed at the players of the reserve team.

The Gran Canaria Basketball Club and Bankia have renewed their agreement in an event that took place in the central court of the Gran Canaria Arena. This agreement, which will last for over a year, maintains the objective of promoting and bringing basketball to all corners of the Canary islands through financial support of its activities.

The president of the Gran Canaria Basketball Club, Enrique Moreno, and Bankia’s corporate director of the Canary Islands region, Federico Navarro; the regional corporate director, Miguel Ángel Montesdeoca; and the South and Canary Islands business corporate director, Salvador Curiel, who were happy to attend the appointment with the players of the reserve team one more year.

The agreement establishes that the financial institution will financially support a program to promote sports during the sports season benefiting all the reserve teams of the Gran Canaria Basketball Club. These reserve teams were present at the event to take the traditional family photo, and other federated teams and schools will be presented later in the season, during the breaks of two matches of the Endesa League.

Bankia also undertakes to offer advantageous conditions possible to the club in its portfolio of financial products and services, while the Gran Canaria Basketball Club will have Bankia as its preferential financial institution, thanks to this agreement.

Same as last year, the 'Triple Solidario Bankia' action will take place: Bankia will donate 50 euros for each triple scored by Herbalife Gran Canaria in its Endesa and EuroLeague matches, both at home and away from home. The money collected at the end of the season will go to training projects for the reserve teams.

About 1,000 children of all categories will benefit from the agreement between the bank and the team. The prolific reserve team of the Gran Canaria Basketball Club will benefit from this agreement, which also includes the prestigious and long-lived Summer Campus arranged by the club.

Likewise, the agreement contemplates the participation of club members in actions related to social integration projects that the bank has carried out in the Islands in the past, such as food collection for the Food Bank.
