James Parkinson, Brentford FC Commercial Director, said: “IFX Payments are a proven specialist in foreign exchange. Taking into consideration our specific requirements, it was important for us to work with a foreign exchange partner that can deliver a high level of client service and react quickly. IFX consistently monitor our business and ensure our position is optimised at the time of trading.
“After several discussions it was clear that IFX were the partner for us. We are similar in the fact both companies are going through rapid period of growth and change. What was clear from the start was the passion IFX hold for Brentford's footballing ambitions and our pivotal move to our new stadium. We’re all looking forward to working with IFX in the years to come as both brands move into an important time in their futures.
Simon Hughes, IFX Payments Director of 360 trading, added: “IFX Payments are proud to be partnering with Brentford FC who we see as a club with huge potential on the pitch, as well as one who are always looking to embrace and connect the businesses and community that surround the club. We mirror their ambition to expand and progress, something which is clearly evident with the new stadium, and the impressive start to the season the team have had.”
