The Premier League and Barclays have agreed a new three-year partnership that will see the United Kingdom-based multinational bank continue as the League’s Official Banking Partner for three seasons from 2019/20 to 2021/22.
Barclays has been an important Premier League partner since 2001/02, when Barclaycard sponsored the competition. This new agreement will take the association between the two organisations to over 20 years.
Barclays has today also announced it will sponsor the FA Women’s Super League, a competition that involves many Premier League clubs. This is a fantastic development for elite women’s football as it continues to grow.
