Skilling seeks to use Fulham deal to aid growth plans

English Championship club Fulham has signed a new back-of-shirt partnership with online foreign exchange and CFD trading platform Skilling.

The partnership is a one-year deal covering the 2019-20 season only.

In addition to the Skilling logo featuring on the back of the first team playing shirts, the brand will also benefit from prominent exposure at Fulham’s Craven Cottage stadium and its digital and social channels.

Skilling launched earlier this year and is looking to use its association with Fulham to aid growth plans across the UK and Europe.

Fulham said the club’s popularity in Scandinavia and association with several Norwegian players, including current Norway captain Stefan Johansen, was a further incentive given Skilling’s Scandinavian roots.

Pavel Spirin, chief marketing officer of Skilling, said: “With our shared plans for the future – Fulham’s push to get straight back into the Premier League and ours to bring trading to everyone – the partnership could not have come at a more opportune time.”
