PayByPhone, one of the world’s fastest growing mobile payments companies, today announced that it will become Leyton Orient Football Club’s (LOFC) official social media sponsor for the 2018/19 season.
PayByPhone will be featured on the club’s social media channels and, over the course of the season, will develop content that is relevant to the club’s supporters and followers. PayByPhone will also share regular content about LOFC through its Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts.
Danny Macklin, CEO of Leyton Orient Football Club, says: “We are thrilled to welcome PayByPhone as our social media sponsor for the 2018/19 season. With its widespread following, PayByPhone’s involvement will help to promote our club both nationally and internationally. Locally, the company already has a strong presence in Waltham Forest as the council’s only cashless payment parking provider, and it will be great to have their support this coming year, both on and off the pitch.”
The deal also sees PayByPhone become match ball sponsor for a game and it will give away a pair of match tickets every month through competitions run on its social media channels.
Anthony Cashel, marketing manager for PayByPhone UK, says: “This is the start of an exciting partnership. We are delighted to have the opportunity to support Leyton Orient. With such strong roots in Waltham Forest and a devoted fan base, the club has many local community projects planned over the coming season and we are looking forward to getting involved with those. As social media sponsor, we will also be doing our part on social media to support and to encourage the club’s infectious community spirit.”
By downloading the PayByPhone app before leaving home, visitors to Leyton Orient will be able to identify parking areas near the ground easily. With no need for cash, they can pay for their parking in under 10 seconds, and if the match runs into extra time, they can extend their stay from their phones, without missing a minute of the action.
