OpenMoney announces role as front of shirt sponsors for Bury AFC

The OpenMoney team

August 7, 2020

We are delighted to partner with Bury AFC as their new front of shirt sponsor for the 20/21 and 21/22 seasons.

Sharing a set of similar values between ourselves and the club, we’re just as excited as the fans that football is coming back to Bury.

Bury AFC are putting the fans at the heart of everything they do with the ambition of changing the way football clubs are ran, in the same way we are disrupting the financial services industry to make financial advice affordable and accessible to everyone.

Anthony Morrow, OpenMoney Co-founder, said “We are delighted to be supporting Bury AFC for the next two seasons. I’m sure that with a fresh start for the club it will win round not just Bury fans of old but hopefully some new ones.

There are a lot of shared values between OpenMoney and Bury AFC and as a business committed to long term, safe investing we hope that we offer a stark contrast to football’s unhealthy association with predatory gambling and Forex trading advertising. We are democratising access to financial advice, making it available to everyone and not just the affluent few, and are committed to transparency, simplicity and affordability. These are all values we saw in Bury AFC, and we hope we can work together over the next couple of years for the benefit of all Bury fans.”

Chris Murray, Bury AFC Chairman said “We’ve had a lot of interest from sponsors but it was apparent that OpenMoney was a perfect fit for us. We wanted a sponsor that was inclusive and embraced the same ideals as ourselves, and I feel that we have found this in OpenMoney. A two-year deal not only offers certainty, it allows us to deliver on our promise to fans to change the kit every two years rather than one. We are keen to reward their loyalty rather than exploit it. With a number of our key sponsors in the bag we can now focus on getting a squad ready to challenge for promotion in this forthcoming season.”
