The Scottish FA has today announced digital bank Chase as Official Banking Partner of the Scotland National Teams.

Chase will be working with the Men’s, Women’s and National Youth Teams across a four-year period, with the Chase logo appearing on training kit worn by players and staff as part of the partnership.

At the heart of the partnership, Chase will also be supporting individuals across the country from low-income and low socio-economic backgrounds by providing access to fully funded coaching qualifications and free learning tools, helping to develop transferable skills for life on and off the football pitch. More details will be revealed when the programme is launched in the coming weeks.

The new partnership builds on the Scottish FA and Chase's ongoing investment in community-based programmes, and extends JPMorgan Chase's decades-long support for local communities in the UK, where it employs over 22,000 people.

Through this sponsorship – and Chase's existing partnership with the National Literacy Trust – both parties aim to empower individuals by improving access to the resources and tools they need to unlock their potential and build pathways towards future employment.

Chase will also provide opportunities for supporters to get closer to the national teams through memorable experiences around matches and training camps.

Scottish FA Chief Executive Ian Maxwell: "We look forward to kicking off this exciting partnership with Chase that will not only support our national teams, but some of Scotland's most committed grassroots coaches of today and tomorrow.

"We talk regularly about the power of football making an impact on and off the pitch – whether it's our talented players striving to inspire the nation, or the game itself making a real difference in everyday life across a host of areas. Those are ambitions we share with Chase.

"Our national teams have a lot to look forward to in the coming months and I know our Coach Education team is looking forward to supporting Chase in their community work."

Deborah Keay, UK Chief Marketing Officer at Chase: "Football has the unique ability to drive positive societal change, bringing together millions of people across every corner of the UK.

"We are excited to be working with the Home Nations to use the power of football to support disadvantaged communities across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

"We recognise there are barriers that can make obtaining coaching qualifications difficult for many.

"By supporting individuals with access to the right resources and tools they need to succeed, we can help people develop key life skills on and off the pitch that will have a positive impact on their lives."
