West Ham United has expanded its deal with the club’s official online trading partner, Scope Markets, making the firm its new sleeve sponsor for the remainder of the season.
Scope Markets began working with the Premier League side in 2018 as partners. However, following negotiations, the trading platform provider will appear on West Ham’s home and away shirts for the first time.
Karim Virani, Chief Commercial Officer at West Ham United stated: “I am delighted that we are able to announce the expansion of our relationship with Scope Markets, as our new Sleeve Partner. Scope Markets are a Global forward-thinking organisation and with their core values of service and innovation mirroring our own, to be able to now call Scope Markets our sleeve partner is a very proud moment for all of us at West Ham United.”
Since partnering with the Premier League side, Scope Markets has been a part of a number of fan experiences, which included hosting a VIP day at London Stadium for fans with accessibility needs.
Jacob Plattner, CEO of Scope Markets added: “The Scope Markets team and I are extremely excited about our new partnership with West Ham. We have had an amazing partnership since we signed our first deal with the team in 2018. Becoming the sleeve sponsor shows our increased commitment to the team and what we look to achieve with our new partnership.
“West Ham has always shown that they believe in the same goals and visions we have as a group such as teamwork, fair play, helping the community and at the same time trying to win at the highest level!”
The new logo will appear alongside tributes to the NHS and the Black Lives Matter, with the new logos also added to all the club’s shirts for the 2019/20 season. The Black Lives Matter logo will be present on the right sleeve, replacing the Premier League logo, whereas, an NHS symbol will appear on the front.
