Skrill will serve as the new front-of-shirt sponsor of the team, which launched last September with the backing of legendary Italian footballer Alessandro Del Piero.

Skrill, which has been working with Del Piero on a marketing level since May 2018, will also promote the partnership via social media channels.

LA10 will compete in the United Premier Soccer League during the spring 2019 season.

“This is an important marketing investment for Skrill and Paysafe and forms a key part of our growth strategy,” Skrill CEO Lorenzo Pellegrino said.

“We know from experience that Alessandro is great to work with, and this latest venture is super exciting. I’m confident that together we will be able to put Skrill front of mind for millions of new customers globally.”

Del Piero, a former Juventus striker who won the Fifa World Cup with Italy in 2006, added: “Since the beginning of my partnership with Skrill, I’ve been very impressed by the technology platform and the way the brand takes care of its customers, so I’m delighted they have chosen to sponsor LA10.”
