Swiss Ski banks extension with long-term sponsor

Swiss Ski, the national governing body for skiing in Switzerland, has renewed its partnership with banking group Raiffeisen.

The new three-year deal will run until the end of the 2019-20 season.

Raiffeisen has been a partner of Swiss Ski since the 2005-06 season, and has supported around 300 athletes across all disciplines of the sport.

The new partnership was signed in the Swiss resort of St. Moritz, where the Alpine World Ski Championships are currently taking place.

Michael Auer, a member of the executive board at Raiffeisen Schweiz, said: “With the extension of the contract, Raiffeisen is confirming its commitment to Swiss snow sports.

“Not only top athletes and athletes benefit from this support, but also the important basic work in the… junior sector is further promoted. In this way, we are taking full advantage of snow sports at the local, regional and national level.”

Raiffeisen is one of three second-tier partners of Swiss Ski alongside Helvetia and BKW.
