We are happy to announce that the Polskie ePłatności (PeP) group, one of the leaders in cashless payments in Poland, has become the new Patron of Basketball Polonia Warsaw. The Black Shirts women’s and men’s basketball sections will soon celebrate their centenary, originating from the Sports Games Section at the Polonia Warsaw Sports Club, founded in 1925. The club has a Polish Championship in its history
PeP’s first support for Polish sport in this scale involves a partnership with SKK Polonia Warsaw (women’s basketball section) and KKS Polonia Warsaw (men’s basketball section). The patronage of Polonia involves constant financial support for both sections of Polish basketball. Polskie ePłatności, part of the Nexi Group, a European leader in the field of cashless payments, pays great attention to international talent building, diversity management and team effectiveness.
“I would like to thank Polskie ePłatności for their trust and I am very glad that Polish basketball has a new Patron. Black Shirts are one of the symbols of Warsaw, Masovian and nationwide sport. Establishing cooperation with a renowned and leading company in the cashless payments sector in our country is also proof of brand recognition and recognition of the basketball tradition of Polonia Warszawa. We are happy that, together with the new Patron, we will be taking further development steps for both of our organizations”, said Łukasz Tusiński, President of both basketball sections of Polonia Warsaw. – It is very encouraging for me that the patronage program launched in early February 2023, which is a manifestation of corporate social responsibility and implementation of sustainable development goals, is gradually expanding its number. Welcome PeP to the Polonia basketball community!
