The corona pandemic has changed the sports scenery completely. After two months of lockdown and severe measures, Skrill and AC Milan are hopeful the sport's future is bright. So are football fans around the world.
Skrill and AC Milan signed an agreement, which makes Skrill the official global payments partner of the beloved Italian football club. With this partnership, Skrill will be the number one payment partner of AC Milan for the next four years.
The Coronavirus crisis has brought the life in Italy to a standstill. Although the partnership was sealed weeks ago, AC Milan and Skrill did not disclose its marketing plans. At this point, both partners are focusing on supporting the local community. We expect the partnership to activate once the COVID-19 measures are lifted in Europe and professional sports return to our daily lives.
AC Milan started training last week, which makes fans and Milan's players hopeful that the matches will begin shortly. At this point, health is the number one concern for all, especially those who lost their family members or friends to COVID-19.
Skrill is a payment provider that leads the way with innovation, but also with social impact. The support provided to small businesses in Italy was a much welcome gesture, which shows the potential of a digital wallet in crisis times.
Skrill provides a platform with multiple payment methods, such as credit cards, debit cards, instant banking to more than one hundred countries and territories. Since 2001, Skrill has been an innovative payment solution.
With the agreement, Skrill will be the number one choice for all AC Milan merchandise sales. Also, the Skrill wallet will be in the foreground of the international online store. The AC Milan fans will be able to buy the store items with Skrill.
AC Milan will advertise Skrill on their home matches and the club's channels, including the official AC Milan app, AC Milan website, and on their social media channels.
The partnership is truly an excellent deal for Skrill users and football fans. When the matches resume, the AC Milan fans will be able to use Skrill at Vivaticket to buy tickets or other AC Milan events.
As we hopefully return to some sort of normality over the coming weeks and months, our customers more than ever will be looking for the widest choice of payment options when buying their tickets and experiences on our platform. Over these recent weeks, people have become even more attuned to using digital payment methods such as those provided by Skrill and we're really pleased to be adding their solutions as part of our offering.

Pellegrino, The Skrill CEO, hopes football will come back soon, and he will definitely be a strong supporter of the club. "I'm confident there will be good times ahead, and we will emerge from this crisis stronger and more resilient than ever."
It has been heartbreaking to see this devastating situation unfold in my home country and then around the world, and the timing wasn't right to talk about our partnership. Instead, we refocused our efforts on supporting the local community and dropped our fees on our Skrill money transfer service for anyone who wanted to send money to loved ones in Italy from outside of the country.

Skrill branding was first activated in the San Siro stadium in February and has already driven significant incremental traffic to Skrill's website and social media channels.
After the return of football matches, sportsbook activities will increase as well. Skrill is also a great payment solution for sports betting, so there is a unique opportunity arising from this partnership for Skrill affiliates as well.
If you are a sports expert, sportsbook agent, tipster, you have the knowledge and network that can work to your benefit. If new clients sign up for Skrill, you can earn a commission from their deposits. Whenever a user deposits to an online merchant, such as a sportsbook, you get a revenue share from the deposit. The revenue share is calculated from the fee the online merchant pays to Skrill.
