ASTROPAY has renewed its “strong and mutually beneficial partnership” with Burnley Football Club which will see the online payment solutions provider become the Clarets’ official payment solutions partner and sleeve sponsor for the 2021/22 season.
With Burnley FC due to play its sixth successive season in the Premier League under manager Sean Dyche, AstroPay’s logo will feature on the first team strip’s sleeves.
“Burnley FC is a major club in England’s Premier League, with a rich heritage and a strong fan base, so it is fantastic that we are joining forces again as a major sponsor,” explained Mikael Lijtenstein, CEO of AstroPay.
“We see the club as continuing to head in the right direction and we are thrilled to be part of the team for another season of competition between the top level of English and world football.
“Turf Moor and the Premier League represent a perfect stage for us as leaders in our field and we look forward to more joint success together.”
AstroPay and Burnley FC entered into a similar partnership in the 2018/19 season following the club’s return to the Europa League.
The payment solutions provider believes that this renewed partnership will present an “excellent opportunity to bolster brand awareness” at a time when AstroPay is expanding its range of products and services.
Burnley FC Chairman Alan Pace said: “We’re really thrilled to be welcoming AstroPay back into the Clarets family. They were with the club for one of our greatest seasons so there is some added history to this partnership which I’m sure fans will appreciate.”
