Ahead of the 2021/22 Premier League season, Burnley Football Club has revealed that AstroPay will become the team’s official payment solutions partner and sleeve sponsor
The sponsorship renewal, which AstroPay believes will present an “excellent opportunity to bolster brand awareness”, will see the payment solutions provider’s logo feature on the first team strip’s sleeves.
Burnley FC Chairman Alan Pace said: “We’re really thrilled to be welcoming AstroPay back into the Clarets family. They were with the club for one of our greatest seasons so there is some added history to this partnership which I’m sure fans will appreciate.”
AstroPay and Burnley FC entered into a similar partnership in the 2018/19 season following the club’s return to European competition for the first time in more than half a century in the Europa League.
Meanwhile, the partnership is important for the Clarets as they prepare for their first full season under the ownership of ALK Capital Investment Group.
Mikael Lijtenstein, CEO of AstroPay, said: “Burnley FC is a major club in England’s Premier League, with a rich heritage and a strong fan base, so it is fantastic that we are joining forces again as a major sponsor.
“We see the club as continuing to head in the right direction and we are thrilled to be part of the team for another season of competition between the top level of English and world football.
“Turf Moor and the Premier League represent a perfect stage for us as leaders in our field and we look forward to more joint success together.”
