Global financial services provider AstroPay has agreed to become Burnley FC’s sleeve sponsor for the remainder of the 2018/19 season.
The firm’s logo can be found on Burnley’s sleeves and first featured during their match against Chelsea in October. Financial details for the deal have remained undisclosed.
London based AstroPay focus their business on providing local payment solutions in Latin America, Asia and Middle East markets.
Founded in 2009, their cross-border payment gateway allows businesses to conduct transactions in local markets and local currencies – whilst still receiving their funds in whatever currency they desire.
AstroPay aims to avoid issues such as payment rejections, local taxes, fraud and credit approval to provide guaranteed payment solutions to its consumers.
It also allows consumers to purchase online at international websites, using the most effective local payment methods in local currency.
Its products include ‘AstroPay Card‘, a virtual pre-paid card, and ‘AstroPay Direct‘.
AstroPay Card is a 16-digit card that allows you to deposit by credit card and load money to the Astropay instantly.
The card code can be used on shopping, gaming and betting sites to make payments for the amount the consumer have determined after they have deposited.
AstroPay were previously in a sponsorship deal with midlands outfit Stoke City, who were relegated last year to the Championship.
First rolled out last season, Premier League clubs have been able to sell shirt sleeve space to sponsors; only Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur are without one this season.
Burnley finished seventh in the Premier League last season and qualified for a competitive European competition for the first time in 51 years.
Their journey in the Europa League ended in August as they lost against Greek side Olympiacos, after they had eliminated Scottish Premier League club Aberdeen and Turkish side İstanbul Başakşehir in the previous rounds.
The Lancashire club currently sit 16th, five points ahead of the relegation zone.
