“The addition of these three major brands is further proof of the scale of this event and our ambition to make it the biggest women’s European sport event ever.
“It is important for us to have partners on board who share the same values, working together collectively to deliver what is set to be a record-breaking tournament that further grows the women’s game.”
Rachel Kerrone, Head of Brand at Starling Bank, added:
“We are honoured to be able to share the excitement of the Women’s EURO with our customers.
“At Starling, we’ve long been a passionate supporter and driver of gender equality, with our #MakeMoneyEqual campaign. We’re determined to help inspire the same enthusiasm for the women’s game as we saw for the men’s in 2021.”
The tournament, which is looked at as a ‘nationwide celebration of Women’s sports’ in England, will see its partnership with Starling Bank give the Starling customers priority access to tickets.
Aside from Starling Bank, the tournament also has LEGO, Pandora, Booking.com, Hisense, Visa and Adidas as its notable sponsors.
