Skrill sponsors Football Conference leagues
Skrill (Moneybookers) is the new Title Sponsor for the next three seasons of Football Conference league play. The new leagues will be named the Skrill Premier, The Skrill North, and the Skrill South, according to an official press release released by the Football Conference and posted on the Skrill website.
Skrill succeeds online betting operator Blue Square Bet, a company acquired by Betfair as SBR reported on April 2. SBR reported on April 7 that Betfair passed on renewing the Blue Square football sponsorship.
Headquartered in London, Skrill serves more than 35 million customers worldwide and is regarded as the premier eWallet service enjoyed not only by those in the gaming market (punters and bookies alike), but online businesses and persons from all walks of life. While Skrill serves online payments, it does not offer credit or leans.
Skrill President and CEO Siegfried Heimgaertner stated the following in the official release: "By teaming up with the Football Conference we want to bring non-league football to more fans and enable them to support and access their local team in new and exciting ways. In our view the Football Conference is the most dramatic league in the UK and we are proud to be its title sponsor for the next three seasons."
Chairman of the Football Conference, Brian Lee, touched on Skrill's value as a sponsor: "Skrill is a worldwide brand. I am sure they will during their time
as Title Sponsor become well known throughout the game, let alone the
Football Conference. Skrill join us at a very exciting time, with a host
of other new sponsors, corporate and affiliate; and we are positive
Skrill will attract other brand names who wish to be part of our ever
growing football family."
