Banka CREDITAS is again the general partner of the Show Jumping World Cup

June 18, 2024

The international show jumping competitions included in the World Cup will be hosted by the Equine Sport Center Olomouc for the eleventh time. Banka CREDITAS CSI2*-W Olomouc will take place from 20–23 June. The four-day show jumping competition will offer twenty-one events, the possibility of qualifying for the Olympic Games in Paris and many other crowd-pleasing moments.

The World Cup is one of the most prestigious events organised by the International Federation for Equestrian Sports (FEI). The list of participants at Banka CREDITAS CSI2*-W Olomouc includes 330 horses and two hundred riders from fifteen countries. The interest of riders in the races was so great that the organisers of the event had to turn some of them away for capacity reasons.

"We are proud to sponsor such a prestigious sporting event that brings the world's show jumping elite to Olomouc and offers visitors to the Equine Sport Center the opportunity to watch the best Czech and international riders. At Banka CREDITAS, we consider active support of sports activities to be an integral part of our social responsibility," says Vladimír Hořejší, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Banka CREDITAS, adding: "This support is all the more significant for us because it is about Olomouc, where we successfully developed CREDITAS, transformed it into a bank and subsequently experienced a period of rapid growth."

Twenty-one competitions will take place during the four-day event. Sára Vingrálková, the defending champion of the last year’s Grand Prix victory, will participate in the event, as will three-time World Cup winner Aleš Opatrný.

"Riders are not the only ones interested in the World Cup. Every year the stands of the Equine Sport Center are filled with spectators who keep a close eye on the individual races. It's also a great tip for spending a weekend with kids. Thanks to Banka CREDITAS, we will be able to offer participants and spectators another unforgettable sporting experience in the comfortable environment of our venue," said Barbora Hubáčková, President of the races.
