Global financial services firm Ebury has announced a partnership to become the training kit sponsor of Serie B football club Parma Calcio 1913.
The sponsorship will be served throughout the remainder of the Serie B season for the men’s football team.
The Ebury brand will be visible on the training kits of both the Parma team and the management team, which is currently competing in the second-highest division in the Italian football league system.
“We are delighted to support a team like Parma: a club that has always shown passion and determination across all challenges, both on the field and in the wider community,” said Fernando Pierri, Global Chief Commercial Officer at Ebury.
“On behalf of Ebury, I wish the whole Parma Calcio team the best of luck for the rest of this current season and beyond. We will be rooting for you.”
Founded in London in 2009 by Juan Lobato and Salvador García, Ebury has expanded its global presence across 32 offices in 21 countries, with more than 1,300 employees.
Ebury specialises in international payments and collections, FX risk management and business lending. The company offers payments and FX capabilities in 130+ currencies worldwide, including both major and emerging markets.
During the last year, the volume of transactions executed by Ebury exceeded $21bn, with the company the recipient of the Financial Times 1000 Europe’s fastest-growing companies. In 2020, Santander became a majority shareholder in the London-based fintech.
Pierri concluded: “It’s fantastic to see the growth of the Ebury brand as we extend our footprint, building new relationships worldwide.
“Partnering with an iconic brand like Parma that truly shares our values is an exciting way to become more integrated with the businesses we support.”
