Inter&Co, a Brazilian digital bank provider, has been announced as a new partner of MLS team New York City Football Club (NYCFC).
The collaboration comes as the firm continues its focus on consolidating its remittances and cross-border payments for Brazilians living in the US and for those travelling abroad. This is also a part of Inter’s expansion strategy, as it aims to keep providing cross-border transactions to customers in up to 60 different countries.
“We are very excited to partner with the NYCFC, not only for what they represent as one of the leading MLS teams, but also as a way to connect more meaningfully with the Brazilian and Latino communities in the US,” said Priscila Salles, CMO of Inter&Co.
“Our commitment to making money remittances affordable and accessible to everyone resonates deeply with NYCFC values of inclusion and community.”
Home to 6.5m soccer fans across the US, NYCFC was selected as Inter’s remittance service provider due to its large exposure across the country.
Under the terms of the agreement, the digital bank will offer NYCFC supporters “unique fan experiences” during the 2023 MLS season.
Andres Gonzalez, NYCFC Vice President of Partnerships, added: “NYCFC is committed to increasing access to soccer to underserved communities. Similarly, our new partners at Inter are committed to making its services accessible to everyone. We are thrilled to partner with a global brand and like-minded company such as Inter.”
