As a leading global payment and risk management solutions provider, Corpay (previously known as AFEX), started its partnership in Watford in 2019, and was subsequently on the club’s back of shirt during the 2020/21 promotion winning season.
Now in their fourth year with the club, Corpay will have their logo on the back of the Golden Boys’ shirts once again.
“We’re proud to continue our support of Watford FC and their community as their Official FX Payments Partner. We have been cultivating our relationship with the Hornets for the past three seasons, and we are very pleased to renew this partnership under the new Corpay brand,” said Jon Delaney, EMEA Sales Director at Corpay.
“As big fans of the club, we were honoured to see Corpay’s name on the Hornets’ shirt for their last promotion. I am really excited for the beginning of the new season, and I – and the entire Corpay team – are convinced this will be another memorable year for the partnership and for the Hornets.”’
Corpay is deeply involved in the sporting industry in the UK and around the world, supporting federations, clubs, athletes, service providers and other organisations involved in the business of sport with international payment solutions and tailored hedging strategies to help reduce risk. The market expertise and personalised service Corpay offers is supported by its state-of-the-art technology.
Watford FC Commercial Director, Paul O’Brien, said: “Corpay have been a longstanding supporter of Watford Football Club, and we’re delighted that Corpay will be on the club’s shirt for the 2022/23 Championship season.”
Corpay’s relationship with the club is much wider than a standard partnership, with the organisation giving its expertise on any of the club’s foreign exchange transfers.
Paul continued: “I am very grateful to Jon, Brad, Nathan and the wider team for creating a special relationship, and I very much look forward to the fourth year of our partnership.”
