Exclusive foreign exchange partner since 2015


AFEX is the Club’s Official global payments and risk management solutions partner

AFEX is proud to announce the renewal of its sponsorship of St.Helens R.F.C. for another three years.

AFEX became the exclusive foreign exchange partner for St.Helens R.F.C. in 2015. The last three years of the AFEX-Saints relationship culminated with the Club’s record-breaking 2019 season and historic capture of the Super League Championship for the seventh time.

In tandem with its sponsorship commitments, AFEX assist clubs, organisations, federations, and industry service providers with tailored international payment solutions and hedging strategies to help reduce risk. The market expertise and personalised service AFEX offer is supported by state-of-the art technology.

AFEX branding will continue to be displayed on the Saints’ official kit, including their shorts and socks. AFEX branding will also be featured across the Saints’ home stadium and official Saints webpage.

Dave Hutchinson, General Manager at St.Helens R.F.C. said, “It’s been fantastic to have AFEX as the Saints’ official global payments partner and we are delighted to have them on board for the next three years. AFEX offer a unique and valuable service and we are grateful for their continued support. It’s wonderful to work with partners like AFEX who are also fans of the club as they have the club’s interests at heart.”
