Ukash Announce Partnership With Birmingham City FCPublished January 31, 2014 by OCR Editor
Due to a new partnership between Ukash and Birmingham City FC fans can now purchase match tickets, and place bets online, with no need to use a credit or debit card.
The Ukash voucher system has been a firm favourite with online bettors who may not want to use credit or debit cards, or e-wallets to place their wagers, and now that a new partnership with Birmingham City Football Club has been announced, they can even buy match tickets using this convenient method.
Intended to make it easier for fans to get tickets, while also letting them place bets online, the new arrangement will also let Ukash advertise their service at Birmingham's' St Andrews ground, where up to 1 million people watch the games each season.
Ukash chief executive David Hunter has commented that "We are tremendously excited by the opportunities to increase exposure for the Ukash brand through this relationship with Birmingham City Football Club," adding that 'we believe the global audience for the Sky Bet Championship, which is broadcast in up to 92 territories, will very effectively support our own global ambitions."
For Birmingham City FC, sales manager Shaun Petafi said "We look forward to building a long-term relationship with Ukash and providing our supporters with another convenient online payment solution," and that "This system aims to add value to the Blues fans that prefer cash transactions, making online retail more accessible for all of our supporters."
Ukash is a voucher system that can be purchased in 100.000's of shops, newsagents, garages etc. across the UK and Europe. Users simply pay for the vouchers with cash or cards, and receive a ticket with a unique code printed on it. They can then log into any site that accepts Ukash, enter the code, and make their purchase.
The advantage is that no credit card details need to be entered online, and no e-wallet accounts need to be set up. making Ukash a perfect solution for anyone who either does not have a card, or doesn't want to enter sensitive financial details online.
