By Megha Bhattacharya
Digital payments company Skrill today announced that Leeds United has selected it as its Official Partner. Skrill, part of the payments platform Paysafe, is also set to become a live payments option on Leeds United’s international online store.
Andrea Radrizzani, Chairman of Leeds United, said, “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 stated that the new sponsorship supports its activity in the UK and promote its popular services such as the Skrill prepaid card, the option to buy and sell cryptocurrencies and Skrill Money Transfer, which allows people to send money abroad with competitive rates.
Lorenzo Pellegrino, CEO of Skrill, NETELLER and Income Access at Paysafe added, “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.”
Recently, Skrill rolled out a new feature for its digital wallet, enabling users to withdraw funds directly to a cryptocurrency address of their choice. Skrill’s customers will be able to convert and withdraw their fiat balance to an external cryptocurrency wallet by entering an address. The feature can be accessed when a customer goes to withdraw funds in their account and selects ‘Crypto Wallet’. The user then enters the balance amount and wallet address of either a Bitcoin or Ethereum wallet.
