We have been a Main Partner of the Czech ice hockey extra league and the national ice hockey team since the 2021/2022 season
The world of ice hockey and the world of banking have a lot in common. For example, passion and fervour are very important in both. And so as we look after your finances, coaches look after their players in teams. The result is the determination that drives hockey players to every match and that motivates us to professional care for clients.
Men’s national team
We have been a proud Main Partner of men’s national team since the 2021/2022 season when the Czech team won a bronze medal after long ten years. The national team is Czech ice hockey’s crème de la crème that brings together the best players driven by fortitude to return with medals from the world’s tournaments. We are confident that our cooperation with men’s national team will continue at the forthcoming world championship in Riga and Tampere as successfully as it began. Support Czech players with us!
Para ice hockey
We are the proud official partner of Czech para hockey. In 2023, we started to support the national para hockey team and the Czech para hockey league. Para hockey players keep showing us that obstacles are here to be overcome. In para hockey, we see the verve to overcome them every day while proudly representing the Czech Republic at the world championship in Canada and the 2026 Paralympics in Milan, Italy.
The U20 and U18 national teams
Partnerships with the U20 and U18 national teams follow our slogan The Future Is You. Helping young talents is as important for us as helping start-ups. The partnership with young representatives took off as with the men’s national team: by a medal delight at the U20 world championship in Canada. Our players won silver there, proving that for the future, we have additional talents who will mature into Czech ice hockey leaders.
Ice hockey extra league
We are a Main Partner of the ice hockey extra league, which has recently celebrated the thirtieth anniversary of the highest-level Czech competition. The extra league is one of the most popular ice hockey competitions. Almost two million fans visit the arenas to see matches over a single season.
University Ice Hockey League (ULLH)
We are a Main Partner of the University Ice Hockey League, which combines university education and elite sport. Inspired by the university competitions overseas, ULLH offers an opportunity for young hockey players to build a dual career: hone their hockey skills while training for a professional life following the end of their hockey career.
The Bomby k tyči podcast
We appreciate our partnership with the most listened to ice hockey podcast, Bomby k tyči (Bombs to the Goalpost), which comments on the developments in Czech ice hockey. Jakub Koreis, an erstwhile Sparta Prague and Kometa Brno player and now a successful businessman, and Richard Tesař, a sport journalist and ice hockey commentator, host the podcast. They can take you to unknown realms of Czech ice hockey’s backstage through their regular conversations with Czech ice hockey’s personalities.
