Dissemination of Valencian sport

Bankia sponsors, for the second consecutive year, the 'Liga d'Elit de Raspall Femení 2019' and the 'Individual Bankia d'Elit de Raspall Femení', reaffirming its commitment to supporting women's pilota.

The area manager of Valencia Centre at Bankia, Lorena Conesa, has told the players that “for Bankia, sponsorship is very important, but it is also important that we put all our effort into letting everyone learn more about this sport, its history, its values and those who keep it alive and make it grow”.

"Women's pilota is an unstoppable movement thanks to the dreams, effort and hours of work of players like you and the support of clubs, the Generalitat, the Provincial Council of Valencia, sponsors, and especially the Federation", said Conesa.

The president of the Federació de Pilota Valenciana, José Daniel Sanjuán, for his part, thanked Bankia for its support to the project that has been supported by Public Administrations since its inception and, since 2018, also by the financial entity. "We have been working very hard since 2006 so that women can take their rightful place, and today we all have to congratulate them for giving us this example of self-improvement and professionalism. The players are a clear example of effort and perseverance", he assured. "Our obligation is to give them the visibility they deserve and we must deeply appreciate the boost they have given to the Valencian pilota in recent times", he remarked.

The vice president of the Federació de Pilota Valenciana of the raspall area, Susana Serrano, thanked Bankia’s sponsorship and pointed out that it is "the first step in creating a great Lliga where players will feel valued and it may inspire young girls who want to be like these players, under the protection of their clubs".

This season, athletes and competitions will continue to be sponsored with printed and audiovisual content such as 'Vaqueta', improving the quality and image of Valencian sports. Valencian designer Lawerta participated in the design of the 2019 Lliga Bankia poster.
