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.”

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.”
