Borja Ekiza Imaz (born 6 March 1988) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a central defender for Cypriot club AC Omonia.
Born in Pamplona, Ekiza arrived at Athletic Bilbao's youth system at the age of 14, being eligible to represent the Basque through his Navarrese roots. He spent his first two senior seasons with CD Basconia, the club's third team.
Subsequently, Ekiza played with the reserves in Segunda División B, being sparingly used in two years. On 8 January 2011, after a string of injuries to the defensive sector in the first team awarded him with promotion to the main squad, he made his La Liga debut in a 1–1 away draw against Málaga CF, playing the full 90 minutes; he finished his first top flight campaign established in the side's starting XI, beating competition from seasoned veterans Fernando Amorebieta, Aitor Ocio and Ustaritz and being booked only once.
In 2013–14, Ekiza lost his starting spot to Aymeric Laporte and Carlos Gurpegui due to repeated injuries, and only appeared once during the season, 37 minutes in a 2–1 win at Real Valladolid. On 31 July 2014, he terminated his contract with the Lions and signed a two-year deal with fellow league team SD Eibar hours later.
On 21 July 2017, Cypriot First Division club AC Omonia announced the signing of Ekiza from Ukraine's FC Zirka Kropyvnytskyi.
