The NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars has announced a partnership with financial technology firm Ebury to become the franchises FX transfer partner.
Ebury will become the preferred service for Jacksonville Jaguars UK FX transfers, following on from the previously announced partnership with Fulham FC, both owned by billionaire Shahid Khan.
The deal coincides with the Jaguars’ upcoming UK – where Ebury is based – NFL games in October, where they will face the Atlanta Falcons at Wembley Stadium, followed by a second fixture in the country against the Buffalo Bills at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Maria Gigante, Vice President of International Operations at The Jacksonville Jaguars, said: “I am delighted to be partnering with Ebury as we head towards our tenth game in London at Wembley Stadium, and another first in the history of the NFL’s International games, by playing a road game the following week at Tottenham’s stadium.
“With its extensive transatlantic FX knowledge, we know that Ebury’s experience and guidance will be a huge asset to the Jaguars in the UK and we can’t wait to celebrate our tenth game milestone with them.”
In the build-up to the UK fixtures, the Jaguars are hosting a “Jags Country” event on 28 September at Wembley, aiming to fuse the talents of US and UK country music.
The event will be supported by the presence of Jaguars alumni, mascot Jaxson De-Ville, Jaguars cheerleaders and country music artists Clint Black, Brian Kelley and Tyler Rich, plus performances from Alyssa Bonagura and Irish duo Dea Matrona.
Phil Monkhouse, UK Country Manager at Ebury, commented: “This partnership re-asserts Ebury’s commitment to supporting the best in global talent, demonstrating our dedication to building bridges across the international sporting community.”
