Brian Lee, Chairman of the Football Conference commented on the signing of contracts “With the new season fast approaching, we are pleased to welcome Skrill. Patience has been the key element throughout negotiations by those members of the Board tasked with finding a new Title Sponsor. Everyone at the Football Conference has been confident one would be secured. 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. May I personally welcome them on behalf of our membership”
On behalf of Skrill, Siegfried Heimgaertner, President and CEO Skrill Group was enthusiastic to be joining such a well known brand in the English game. He 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.”
Brian Lee concluded by stating; ”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. I am excited for our member clubs that we are able to deliver what we as a Board promised. Now I ask our clubs in turn to embrace Skrill and work with them”
