| By Robert Fletcher
Paysafe Group-owned Skrill has entered into a partnership with English Premier League football club Leeds United.

Skrill will become an official partner of the club, with its branding to feature on a range of surfaces inside the team’s Elland Road home stadium.

Leeds will also feature Skrill as a payment option on its official online clubshop.

In addition, Leeds and Skrill will work together to develop exclusive content for fans, with this to be promoted across the club’s website, mobile app and social media channels.

“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,” Leeds chairman Andrea Radrizzani said.

Skrill chief executive at Paysafe, Lorenzo Pellegrino, added: “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.”

Leeds also has a partnership in place with SBOTOP, with the online gambling operator serving as the team’s main front-of-shirt sponsor.
