As part of the sponsorship, Skrill’s logo will feature on team shirts and pitch-side throughout the stages of the competition. Skrill is also the official payment partner for the global tournament, used for team fees and the merchandise website.
Founded in 2013, F5WC is an annual global tournament for all amateur players as the only global competition of its kind.
Just a week ago Skrill informed that it has also become the sponsor of international esports team QLASH.
Lorenzo Pellegrino, CEO of Skrill and Paysafe’s Digital Wallets Division, commented:
At Skrill, we’re focused on launching new ways for our customers to send money globally, connecting and empowering people through the way they pay. This partnership with F5WC allows us to support the thriving global 5-a-side community, showcasing talent and connecting people across the globe.
James Davies Yandle, CEO of F5WC, added:
2018 is going to be a big year for us, and we are delighted to have the support of Skrill as both our sponsor and payment partner. Registrations are now open, and we are excited to be starting another international tournament in what promises to be a significant year for the sport.
