With the start of the season for the Conference just a fortnight away, the League have now been able to announce their new sponsor. Skrill will be sponsoring all 3 Divisions, and they will be known as The Skrill Premier, The Skrill North and The Skrill South.
Skrill are a London based online payments company. Similar type operation to Paypal, rather than a loans company.
Brian Lee, Chairman of the Football Conference commented:-
With the new season fast approaching, we are pleased to welcome Skrill. Throughout the whole process, the most important factor was to make the right decision, not only to safeguard all that is good about our competition but the chosen sponsor possesses the qualities we seek after a long line of previous trusted partners. We were mindful we needed a company displaying an image and work ethos which suits the modern game, our clubs and their sponsors, whilst not forgetting our ever growing number of supporters. We sincerely believe we have found such a company in Skrill.
Siegfried Heimgaertner, President and CEO Skrill Group said:-
At Skrill we believe in bringing access and opportunities to our customers. Whether it’s paying businesses or transferring funds to family and friends our service is quick and great value for money – the two things that we think embody the Football Conference.
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.
