Leeds United, the prominent Premier League football team, has entered into a partnership with Skrill, the global digital payments provider. The partnership will allow the use of Skrill for both merchandise and ticket purchases with Leeds United, as well as other synergies between the two entities.
Beginning this weekend at Elland Road, the home of Leeds United, Skrill branding will be prominently displayed via LEDs around the stadium. Skrill will also become a live payments option so that Leeds United supporters can use the platform for ticket purchases.
Leeds United will work with Skrill to create exclusive content campaigns, including exclusive access for Leeds United fans to players, and added entertainment options. Skrill will be a part of Leeds United’s branding and have its logo used on the football team’s official mobile app, website, and social media outlets.
Skrill Makes Payments Easier Globally
Leeds United fans will now be able to take advantage of a payments platform that has a global reach, and substantial capabilities. Both entities are excited to be working together, and offering Leeds United’s supporters new ways to pay.
Andrea Radrizzani, President of Leeds United, commented,
“We are delighted that Skrill is joining us as a partner. Both Skrill and Leeds United are dynamic forces in our respective industries, challenging the status quo and going through a particularly exciting time in our journey. Both of our brands have a strong and loyal fan base in the UK and internationally, and we look forward to rewarding our fans through this partnership.”
Skrill offers a range of fiat payment options, and also allows its users to buy and sell cryptos from their Skrill wallet. Clients can buy and sell more than ten popular tokens from the Skrill wallet, and use the funds to pay for goods and services, like Leeds United tickets and merchandise.
Far from being a new company, Skrill has been making payments easier since 2001. It has an extensive global network, as well as a track record of creating value for its partners and clients.
Football is Coming Back
Football, like most sports, has been hit hard by COVID-19. That all may change in the coming months, with a return of fans to Premier League stadiums all over the UK. Leeds United will face Chelsea FC at 12.30 pm GMT on Saturday, March 13, which promises to be a great match.
Lorenzo Pellegrino, CEO of Skrill, NETELLER and Income Access at Paysafe, told media,
“With the eagerly anticipated return of fan presence at football stadiums and the incredible season which Leeds United is having, I can’t think of a more exciting time for Skrill to be entering into this partnership. We already know from our football partnerships that fans enjoy the benefits of Skrill and that our service is very relevant to them. We will be making the most of this new relationship to add value to the Club’s payment ecosystem and our own valued customer and partner base to make it a winning formula all round. We wish the team all the best for the big game this weekend and the remainder of the season.”
Both Skrill and Leeds United are leaders in their respective fields and will be able to create advantages for their supporters and clients. Skrill offers advantages over traditional banking for many kinds of clients and helps people to move money globally.
As football recovers from the largest economic disruption in modern history, Skrill will be there to help Leeds United fans pay for tickets and merchandise, and also offer them a range of other financial services that can help save money.
