Today, the team announces a new and exciting partnership with Western Union Business Solutions, a leader in global cross-border, cross-currency money movement, to become the Official Foreign Exchange Partner for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

As the only NFL team dedicated to the UK market, the new partnership will help strengthen the Jaguars global position as Western Union assists in the management of foreign exchange business relating to international activity for the Franchise.

Furthermore, the partnership offers the opportunity for Western Union to unlock new business avenues with other key partners within the Jaguars’ portfolio.

David Prendeville, Head of United Kingdom Foreign Exchange Services for Western Union Business Solutions , comments, “Partnering with the Jacksonville Jaguars UK to become the Official Foreign Exchange Partner compliments our global brands and ability to connect people around the world. Western Union has a long history of innovation, collaboration and partnership, and we are delighted to support the Jaguars with our global payment and FX services as they continue to expand beyond Jacksonville and make London their second home.”

As an existing partner to Fulham FC, the new venture with Jaguars UK will solidify the cross-border, cross-currency money movement leader as the only brand working across both Shad Khan’s sports properties in the UK.

Kelly Flanagan, Chief Financial Officer for the Jacksonville Jaguars, comments, “As we continue to grow our commercial presence in the UK, this partnership with Western Union will greatly benefit the franchise. The detailed market knowledge, competitive rates and smooth process that Western Union offers in managing our foreign exchange transactions will help drive efficiencies across the business.”
