The Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football has reached a deal to make money transfer and payment services company MoneyGram a sponsor of its Champions League club competition.

MoneyGram will have exclusivity in the money transfer category and benefit from the use of CONCACAF Champions League branding, promotional rights, activation in-stadium rights, televised signage, branding in official tournament media materials, hospitality and the naming rights to the Golden Boot award for the tournament’s top scorer.
