Bartercard becomes Southport FC’s latest commercial partner
We are very pleased to announce our latest new commercial partnership as Bartercard joins the club’s expanding list of sponsors and partners.
As part of the partnership, Bartercard will enjoy exclusive sponsorship rights for the club’s main hospitality lounge where our VIP hospitality guests are entertained on matchdays.
Bartercard is a global business-to-business trading platform enabling businesses to buy and sell their goods and services as part of a network of like-minded firms. It has over 55,000 members and, as well as the UK, operates in Australia, New Zealand, USA, Thailand, UAE, South Africa and Cyprus.
Bartering is the oldest form of commerce, but Bartercard has modernised this industry by introducing a unique digital currency – trade pounds – to establish a truly cashless society. Over £425 million is traded on the Bartercard network each year.
Bartercard UK’s Managing Director Chris Kirby said: “It’s an absolute pleasure to announce this partnership with Southport Football Club. We have good relationships with many UK sports clubs, particularly professional and semi-professional football clubs, and are pleased to be adding Southport to this list and to working with it and its local community.”
Steve Dewsnip, Southport FC’s Head of Commercial & Operations said: “This is another exciting partnership for us and I am looking forward to Bartercard, a well-established and respected brand, interacting with us and our growing local business community in the coming months. We look forward to developing a long and beneficial partnership with Chris and his team.”
