SUPPORT FOR SPORT
Škoda Vagonka has been active in the region for a long time, supporting various activities in and around Ostrava.
Sports club partnerships are an extension of Škoda Transportation’s strategy to support sport in the Group’s locations. Škoda Vagonka has been supporting FC Baník Ostrava as one of its main partners since the 2018/2019 season, during which the club returned to the top half of the league and has stayed there since. The partnership with the club brings a long-term perspective and stability, and the contract was concluded for several seasons.
It is our long-term plan to significantly develop the company in Ostrava. By partnering with FC Baník Ostrava, we are consolidating our position in the region, supporting sports activities and presenting ourselves as a significant, promising employer.
Martin Bednarz, Chairman of the Board and CEO of Škoda Vagonka.
