Sponsorship

We support the others in their efforts

ŠKODA is ranked among the biggest sponsors of mostly sporting, but also cultural and charity activities both in Czech Republic and abroad.

Cycling

Besides being a partner to many important events of the cycling world, like Tour de France (since 2004) and Vuelta España (since 2011), our company supports several professional cycling teams as well. The ŠKODA AUTO company also sponsors neutral assistance teams, which offer support to the whole peloton.

Ice Hockey

Over two decades as Official Main Sponsor of the annual IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship have even earned ŠKODA a GUINNESS WORLD RECORD for ‘the longest-lasting main sponsorship in the history of sports world championships’. At every IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship, 40-50 ŠKODA cars carry officials and guests from one location to another.

Culture

That is the concept for our sponsorship,  realised through our partnerships with the Czech Philharmony, the National Theatre, the International Film Festival for Children and Young People in Zlín and the Smetanova Litomyšl International Opera Festival.

Another institutions, supported in the long term, are Paralympic committee, Paraple Centre, which helps patients with spinal chord injuries to return into the normal lifestyle, Healthy Clown non-profit organization, which sends its professional clowns to cheer up the children patients in hospitals, People in Need or Adra. Under the “Mobility without limits” motto, ŠKODA Handy is a programme for finding and developing solutions for personal mobility of physically handicapped people.
