The National Hockey League (NHL) has signed a deal which names OFX, a money transfer provider, as its official currency exchange provider.

OFX has agreed to share with NHL fans an ‘easy and affordable’ way to move money around the world from both the US and Canada. The enterprise will also manage a portion of the NHL’s own currency exchange requirements.

Keith Wachtel, NHL Chief Business Officer, stated: “The NHL is thrilled to welcome OFX as our Official Currency Exchange Provider in North America. We look forward to OFX providing best-in-class exchange services to our teams, players, front office staff and fans.”

Additionally, the coalition will see OFX highlight the connection between player exchange moves and money exchange moves by sponsoring the OFX Trade Tracker; the list of completed trades that provides a ‘one-stop shop’ for news, analysis and reaction from around the NHL.

Alfred Nader, President of OFX, noted: “The NHL does a tremendous job of connecting with the passion of its fans and we are looking forward to helping build that connection through support at the League, team and community levels, while offering the League, players and fans a better way of moving money internationally.”

Both parties will create content across OFX and NHL-controlled media platforms in a bid to engage fans.
