ASTROPAY ARE BACK
Astropay unveiled as sleeve sponsor for 2021/2022 season
AstroPay renews relationship with Burnley Football Club to become the sleeve sponsor for the 2021/22 season.
The online global payment solution will also become Official Payment Solutions Partner for the club.
Burnley FC set to launch brand new kit for the 2021/22 with AstroPay returning to it for the first time since the 2018/19 season.
Burnley Football Club and AstroPay have agreed for the online global payment solution to join the club as the Clarets’ sleeve sponsor for the 2021/22 season.
AstroPay is returning to the sleeve after last partnering with the club in the 2018/19 season when the Official Payment Solutions Partner supported Burnley FC’s return to European competition for the first time in more than half a century.
The company will again have their logo on the sleeves of the Clarets’ new-look first-team strip for the upcoming campaign when Sean Dyche’s men will play their sixth successive season of Premier League football.
Fans will be able to get their debut look at the new 2021/22 kit when it is revealed next week and players will wear it for the first time in a pre-season game against Oldham Athletic on 24th July.
The Clarets are preparing for their first full season under the ownership of ALK Capital during an exciting stage in the club’s history and Head of Commercial Partnerships Ella Cummins was delighted to welcome back AstroPay.
“We’re really pleased to be welcoming AstroPay back into the Clarets family,” said Cummins. “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.
“We’re excited to get the new season underway and look forward to bringing AstroPay and our family of commercial partners with us on the journey.”
AstroPay is the global leader in online payment solutions providing its more than two million users with memorable experiences and CEO Mikael Lijtenstein said they were delighted to be back on board at Turf Moor.
He said: “It’s great to be joining forces again with Burnley Football Club as a major sponsor. We see the club as continuing to head in the right direction and we’re glad to be part of the team for another season of competing against the elite of English and world football.
“Turf Moor and the Premier League is the perfect stage for us as brand leaders in our field and we look forward to more joint success together.”
Carl Sanderson, Burnley FC Head of Business Partnerships, said: “I’m thrilled to welcome AstroPay back on board as sleeve partner to Burnley Football Club and we’re looking forward to working with them throughout the season.”
