Chase have become the Official Banking Partner of the England Football Teams

Wednesday 28 Feb 2024

Digital bank Chase has today been announced as the Official Banking Partner of the England national football teams.

Chase will also be working with the Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales national teams across a four-year period and the partnership will see the Chase logo appear on training kit worn by the men's and women's teams.

At the heart of the partnership, Chase will be supporting individuals across the UK from low income backgrounds by providing access to fully funded coaching qualifications and free learning tools, helping to develop transferable skills for life on and off the pitch. More detail will be revealed when the programme is launched in the coming weeks.

The new partnership builds on Chase's ongoing investment in community-based programmes and extends JPMorgan Chase's decades-long support for local communities in the UK, where it employs over 22,000 people.

Through this sponsorship and Chase's existing partnership with the National Literacy Trust, Chase aims to empower individuals by improving access to the resources and tools they need to unlock their potential and help build pathways towards future employment.

Chase will also be providing opportunities for customers to get closer to the national teams through memorable experiences at matches and training grounds.

Speaking about the new partnership, our CEO Mark Bullingham said: "Our new partnership with Chase is an exciting opportunity that will help us to develop the next generation of coaching talent across all levels of English football.

"Importantly, this collaborative programme will directly support people from disadvantaged communities across the country who wish to pursue a future in football coaching.

"Together, we will create a new pathway for aspiring coaches by providing access to fully funded courses and free training resources so that they can achieve a range of industry leading qualifications."

Deborah Keay, UK chief marketing officer at Chase, added: "Football has the unique ability to drive positive societal change, bringing together millions of people across every corner of the UK.

"We're excited to be working with the Home Nations to use the power of football to support individuals and communities across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales.

"We recognise there are barriers that can make obtaining coaching qualifications difficult for many. By supporting individuals with access to the right resources and tools they need to succeed, we can help people develop key life skills on and off the pitch that will have a positive impact on their lives."
