Arsenal Football Club has announced WorldRemit as its first official online money transfer partner.

The digital money transfer business has joined forces with the north London club to accelerate their growth and help more people save money on international transfers.

The global partnership is set to support WorldRemit’s ambitious growth plans by generating awareness at Premier League matches at Emirates Stadium while also connecting with the club’s vast following on social media.

As part of the agreement, WorldRemit will work with first-team players to create unique content to engage fans and potential customers around the world.

Vinai Venkatesham, Arsenal’s chief commercial officer, said: “This is an exciting new partnership with WorldRemit who, under their inspirational CEO, are looking to transform the way people can transfer money to family and friends around the world.

“We share mutual values and look forward to working together to build their global presence through our broadcast, social and digital channels, which reach millions around the world. We look forward to a long and successful partnership.”

Ismail Ahmed, WorldRemit chief executive officer, added: “Football is a language that everyone understands. Growing up in Somaliland, you would always see kids playing football – even during the war.

“It’s a passion which connects people all over the world and we are proud to sponsor a club whose values are so closely aligned to our own and those of our customers. This partnership with Arsenal creates opportunities for us to thank and reward our loyal customers and to connect with new audiences around the world.

“We look forward to using the power of football to support and inspire young people to fulfil their potential and to the opportunities which we can create together.”
