Global Reach, one of the largest specialist money transfer firms in the UK, has signed up with AFC Bournemouth for the 2019/20 season.
The fast-growing and award-winning company has become an official corporate supporter and supplier of the Cherries as well as an official partner of the club’s commercial arm AFC Business.
Amy Marks, the club’s Partnerships Manager, said: “Global Reach has had a long-standing relationship with the club and I am delighted to now welcome the company as an official Corporate Supporter and Supplier.
“The company, founded back in 2001, is a leading provider of corporate and personal foreign exchange, offering insight and guidance to help clients more effectively manage their currency requirements.
“Top level football has been a truly international game for some while now and it is vital that clubs such as AFC Bournemouth can rely on the outstanding services of a highly reliable money transfer company.”
Mark Ackroyd, Head of Dealing at Global Reach said: “We have long admired the business acumen which has helped AFC Bournemouth to succeed off the pitch as the club has enjoyed a rapid rise to their now established status in the Premier League.
“As a fast-growing and innovative company ourselves, we wanted to formalise our association with the Cherries and hope our partnership will help propel the club to a regular top 10 finish in the toughest league in the world.”
The partnership will see Global Reach have a presence at the club’s Vitality Stadium on matchdays, as well as AFC Business and corporate events.
The company will also sponsor this year’s AFC Business Directors’ Dinner, which is taking place on Thursday 3rd October at Top Floor Restaurant.
The event will welcome more than 130 guests to an evening of networking, fine dining and an insightful talk from this year’s keynote speaker, best-selling author and consultant Dr Kevin Dutton, a research psychologist at Oxford University.
