The partnership is part of CurrencyTransfer.com ongoing commitment to the local sports ecosystem and to the expat community in Israel.

Daniel Abrahams, CEO of CurrencyTransfer.com comments,
“It is a privilege to partner with Rugby Israel, their ambitions and values resonate with us. We know what ‘David v Goliath’ and being a challenger finance company means in an industry dominated by old-school banks and wealthy financial institutions. The opportunity to support a fellow challenger, on the road to the Olympics in 2024 massively appealed to us.”
“We love the game of course, but providing the organization and its fans with a better and frictionless way to transfer money abroad is vital to why we chose to partner with Rugby Israel. The Rugby Israel relationship provides an ideal platform for CurrencyTransfer.com to engage with the tens of thousands of expats and international businesses who we can showcase our services to.”
Amir Tito, CEO of Rugby Israel comments;
“We are privileged to have CurrencyTransfer.com on board with us! Not only they are supporting us to achieve our ambitious goals, but they are also helping us by using their unique international payment platform, which makes it a lot easier for us dealing with our day to day cross-border operations.”
Amir also stresses the importance of providing solutions to their growing international player base. He comments “Having numerous National Team players living abroad, 7 national teams participating in European championships and our equipment supplier based in the UK, CurrencyTransfer.com enable us to have more focus on professional matters rather than administrative ones.”
