PayPal facilitates people’s passions. With quick & easy payments, it saves consumers time to focus on what’s important e.g. football!
The Football Association (The FA) identified 40% of matchday fees went unpaid, meaning the grassroots game was missing out on millions. PayPal became The FA’s Official Payments Partner to enable players to pay fees via PayPal through The FA Matchday app, reducing admin & freeing up time, so grassroots teams can focus on their performance.
PayPal’s first sports partnership has set an ambitious goal to digitally transform the grassroots game. With +147,000 app downloads, 1,700 club accounts & 56,000 app users we’re delighted with the impact we’ve made so far.
