WorldRemit partnership extended

World Remit

We are delighted to announce an extension to our partnership with WorldRemit, who first joined as our official online money transfer partner in 2017.

WorldRemit was founded in 2010 to provide people with a safer, faster and low-cost way to send money home to their friends and family.

Since then, the company has experienced significant global growth. Today, WorldRemit serves four million customers and sends money to 150 countries.

The partnership extension will see us continue to support WorldRemit’s impressive global expansion, whilst also rolling out the second edition of the popular Future Stars programme.

Following the programme’s successful debut last season, we will once again be working with WorldRemit to offer two youth football coaches from across Africa or the Americas the chance to attend an exclusive training programme with Arsenal football development coaches in London.

“We are extremely proud to continue our long-term relationship with WorldRemit,” commented Arsenal commercial director, Peter Silverstone.

“We place huge value on building strong, long-term partnerships and it has been hugely rewarding to see this partnership and WorldRemit’s global presence evolve since we first joined together in 2017.

“As well as continuing to support this growth and delivering on our partnership objectives, we are also excited for the return of the Future Stars programme, which champions our shared belief in the positive impact that grassroots football coaches have on the young people they train.”

Alex O’Shaughnessy, chief marketing officer at WorldRemit, added: “After a successful initial partnership, we are excited to continue working with Arsenal to reward our customers with exclusive events and experiences.

“This year, we are expanding the Future Stars programme to further celebrate the contribution of female community football coaches. We are looking forward to welcoming two coaches, one male and one female, to London to train with Arsenal Football Development coaches.”

Applications for the Future Stars programme are free and open to youth team (under 16s) coaches from across Africa or the Americas.

Interview

Pepe - How Emery has helped to me settle

He may have only been here since the start of the month, but Nicolas Pepe is already feeling at home at Arsenal.

The Ivory Coast winger joined us from Lille at the end of the summer transfer window and although he has only made two substitute appearances since moving to north London, he is feeling settled in England thanks, largely in part, to Unai Emery.
 
"It's been really good because he speaks French and it has been much easier for us to communicate," he told Arsenal Player.
 
"I am new, the strategy and tactics are new and it really helps that I can get the coach's assistance. Now I need to learn English and this is something he is helping me with also.
 
"I chose to come here because it's a club with a lot of ambition," Pepe added. "They have the dream of coming back to the Champions League and I am also an ambitious person, so the choice was very logical.
 
"I am attracted to the Premier League because it is an extremely intense championship and the best league in the world. The idea is to win the Europa League and that is a goal of ours. It's a European event and our goal is to do better than last season. I believe we will."
