Skilling has signed a contract with Aston Villa Football Club. The foreign currency exchange firm is becoming the English club’s sponsor for the ongoing 2020/21 Premier League campaign.
The deal will provide Skilling good presence through LED advertising boards and the big screen at Villa Park stadium. Through the club’s digital and social channels, Skilling can carry out promotional activities.
Due to their rich history in Europe and England, Aston Villa is considered as one of the most prestigious in British football. Skilling’s CCO insisted that the club’s history makes this deal even more significant.
Pavel Spirin, Skilling CCO said, “Both ourselves and Villa are on an exciting upwards trajectory, and with a shared ambition to bring accessibility to users and fans alike, this partnership couldn’t be timelier, and we share a great deal of excitement as to what the upcoming season has in store for us both.”
Nicola Ibbetson, CCO of Aston Villa said, “We are delighted to announce Skilling as a global partner of the club. Skilling is a young and exciting brand that matches our own ambitions. We look forward to welcoming them to the Villa family for our upcoming campaign.”
Ahead of the start of the 2020-21 EPL season, Aston Villa added automotive retailer Cazoo as its front-of-shirt sponsor. It has also recently added Asian betting operator and online gaming platform LT.com as their shirt sleeve sponsor.
