“We cannot wait for the new FA Women’s Super League season to kick-off and we’re very excited to be working with Bartercard for the future.”

Chris Kirby, Managing Director at Bartercard UK, added: “The rise in women’s football has been phenomenal and rightly so and the increased standard year on year has been immeasurable.

“We made a conscious effort to research the market and West Ham United Women reflected our vision on how we wanted to move forward as a business.

“Having being involved in the sports and sponsorship space for some time conducting meetings with Jack solely via video chat software was certainly a different experience but is probably a window into the impending digital future.

“It will however never replace the classic face to face conversations which I know we are all missing in business at the moment and are really excited to get down to the ground as soon as we can.

“Bartercard is keen to speak with business owners who may want to come on board to our network of 55,000 members globally and also who may be interested in franchise opportunities.”
