Mukuru becomes sleeve sponsor of Crystal Palace

Mukuru has served over ten million consumers and executed over 100 million transactions.

Mukuru, a next-generation financial services platform and one of Africa’s major money transfer providers, has been appointed as the official sleeve sponsor of Crystal Palace for the 2022/23 season.

Since its establishment in 2004, Mukuru has served over ten million consumers and executed over 100 million transactions. Mukuru serves its consumers all over the world with their larger financial demands in addition to international money transfers.

Wilf Zaha, Jordan Ayew, Jeff Schlupp, and African Cup of Nations winner, Cheikhou Kouyate are among Palace’s notable players who represent African countries. Having Mukuru’s name on the jersey will expose it to countless Africans worldwide since the Premier League viewers are situated around the globe.

Andy Jury, CEO of Mukuru, stated, “Mukuru is a business that puts the customer at the centre of everything we do. Our essence and passion lie in helping to solve problems for Africa’s emerging consumers through financial inclusion and uniting people across the world. This passion drives the way we do business, the way we communicate with our customers and the way we choose partnerships.

“Soccer is the most supported sport on the African continent, uniting people globally, and our customers identified Crystal Palace as one of the teams they support.

“A team with several African players and an iconic coach with strong African heritage in Patrick Viera who our Mukuru customers look up to and resonate with. We are excited to be associated with Crystal Palace, a well-respected and prestigious Premier League team. The sponsorship places Mukuru on an international stage, further entrenching our global presence, operating in over 50 countries around the world.”

Barry Webber, Commercial Director of Crystal Palace commented the following, “This is a really exciting partnership for Crystal Palace, and we’re thrilled to welcome Mukuru on board.

“As a club, we are incredibly proud of our links with the African continent, which were encapsulated by midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate winning the African Cup of Nations earlier this year.

This partnership will help us to continue to expand our international fanbase, and Mukuru join us at a fantastically exciting time for the club, both on the pitch and off of it.”
