Ahead of the 2024 Olympics this summer in Paris, Visa and b are collaborating to create unique debit and credit cards with the official design of the sporting event.
The credit cards will feature a gold design depicting the Arc de Triomphe, in a symbol of victory and triumph. The debit cards will feature an Eiffel Tower design which is emblematic of Paris and French culture.
Nikola Bakalov, CEO and Board Chairman of Fibank, said: “As a result of our long-term partnership with Visa Bulgaria, together we decided to present to our customers a new generation of debit and credit cards.
“These cards not only stand out with their special design dedicated to the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Paris, but also send a clear message for our support to Bulgarian athletes and Olympians and Paralympians. We wish to emphasise the values and spirit that the Olympic and Paralympic Games carry within themselves – promoting tolerance and mutual understanding between nations.
“With the new and stylish design of the Visa cards offered by Fibank, each of our customers will have the opportunity to carry with him a piece of the emotion of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, which will remind him that there are many more things that unite us.”
Visa has been a Worldwide Olympic Partner since 1986, when the company joined the TOP Programme as a charter member. In 2018, it extended its Olympic partnership through to 2032.
At each edition of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, Visa provides a range of payment systems, including contactless-enabled devices and new wearable payment innovations.
Krasimira Raycheva, Country Manager, Visa, Bulgaria, added: “The partnership between Visa and Fibank represents another step in our commitment to innovation and transformation in the world of fintech.
“Together with Fibank, we provide customers with the opportunity to carry with them not only the convenience of payments, but also a symbol of their connection with one of the most prestigious sports events – the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Our partnership reflects our constant commitment to innovation and our desire to create exceptional experiences for our users.”
