Paysafe onboard with Team Isle of Man

Paysafe, a leading global payments provider, has lent its support to the Isle of Man Commonwealth Games Association by becoming a Team Champion for the 2018 Games in Gold Coast, Australia.

As a Team Champion, and as part of its ongoing commitment to the Manx community, Paysafe is providing financial support to help Team Isle of Man get to the Games next year.

Mike Hewison, Finance Director, Merchant Services at Paysafe, said: ‘We’re delighted to be supporting our local athletes on an international stage. Given that the 2014 team outperformed the home nations in the medal table per head of population at the Glasgow Games we have high expectations for 2018.

‘While Paysafe is a global business with operations around the world, the Isle of Man is our home and we couldn’t be prouder to be part of the team’s journey towards Australia.’

President of the Isle of Man Commonwealth Games Association Basil Bielich said: ‘Without the generous support of our Team Champions we wouldn’t be able to represent the Island at this international level. The Isle of Man Commonwealth Games Association has to raise more than £100,000 to get Team Isle of Man to the Games in Australia and we are extremely grateful for the contributions and ongoing support of Paysafe and our other Team Champions.’

Headquartered in Victoria Street, Douglas, Paysafe provides end-to-end payment solutions through its payment processing, digital wallets and online cash solutions. The company offers 200 payment types in more than 40 currencies around the world.
