Barclays Signs $13M Deal For Title Sponsorship Of FA Women’s Super League 

By Barry Janoff

March 20, 2019: Women’s professional soccer in the U.K. and worldwide received a major boost when Barclays today unveiled what was called a “landmark partnership” to become the first title sponsor for the Football Association Women’s Super League.

The multi-year alliance with the London-based investment and financial services firm begins with the 2019-20 season and runs through July 2022.

Financial terms were not shared, but was called the “biggest-ever investment in U.K. women’s sport by a brand.”

The pact was put at nearly $13.3 million (10 million pounds British) by industry analysts, .

The deal comes with the FIFA Women’s World Cup in France less than three months away (June 7-July 7).

The renamed Barclays FA Women’s Super League is Europe’s only fully professional domestic female football league.

According to league executives, “This new partnership will help The FA and the clubs transform the women’s game in England, driving increased awareness via significant allocated marketing spend, celebrating the league’s players and clubs and changing perceptions.”

“We are delighted to announce our landmark partnership with Barclays and are looking forward to them joining us on a journey to transform the future of women’s football,” Kelly Simmons, The FA’s director of women’s professional game, said via the organization.

“Their record, multimillion-pound commitment will impact all levels of the game and will support our ambition to make the Barclays FA Women’s Super League the world’s most successful league, on and off the pitch.”

Barclays was title sponsor for the men’s Premier League from 2004-16.

The financial firm now supports both women’s and men’s football at the top tier as it has also renewed its official banking partner agreement with the Premier League for an additional three years.

Barclays FA Women’s Super League teams include Arsenal, Birmingham, Brighton & Hove Albion, Bristol, City, Everton, Liverpool, defending champions Manchester City (pictured), Reading, West Ham United and Yeovil Town.

League sponsors also include Continental Tyre and energy company SSE.

Puma this month signed a $860 million deal with Manchester City’s alliance of global soccer clubs, including Manchester City Women.

The new alliance will also see The FA and Barclays work together to “drive the growth of the women’s game at a grassroots level,” with Barclays becoming the lead partner of the FA Girls’ Football School Partnerships, a nationwide platform to help develop girls’ access to football at school.

Barclays will collaborate with The FA and The Youth Sport Trust to support the development and delivery of 100 Girls’ Football School Partnerships.

“This new partnership will help The FA and the clubs transform the women’s game in England, driving increased awareness."

The alliance also boots The FA’s Gameplan for Growth strategy, a four-year strategy unveiled in 2017 that “aims to double participation, double the fan base and create a high-performance system for England teams.”

According to Jes Staley, Group CEO for Barclays, “Football has the power to transform young people’s lives, boosting their confidence, being part of a team and providing more opportunities to grow.

“The grassroots work through The FA Girls’ Football School Partnerships will help thousands more girls in England to take up sport and we look forward to partnering with The FA to deliver that.”

Staley said that Barclays’ multi-year investment is “also our salute to the professionalism of The FA Women’s Super League players, and we hope it will help take the game to new heights, making England’s domestic league a world leader.

“Our commitment to women’s and girls’ football, at a crucial time in its development, goes beyond pure sponsorship — we believe it can be a key to increasing participation, development and the wider visibility of the female game.”
