Chelsea FC Women have long been winners on the pitch and innovators off it, so it seems natural that we would partner with N+1 Singer, a leading investment bank dedicated to advising and funding ambitious growth companies in the UK.

N+1 Singer join the Chelsea family as our first ever Women’s shorts partner, and their logo will appear on our kit for the first time at our home game against Brighton & Hove Albion on 7 February. Our three-year partnership is a further signal of the Club’s intent to continue breaking new ground in club sponsorship as we take on partners bespoke to the women’s team.

As one of the UK’s most prestigious mid and small-cap investment banks, N+1 Singer have raised over £6 billion of equity for their clients over 14 years. With an entrepreneurial business ethos, in the highly active capital markets sector, N+1 Singer provide vital funding and advice to companies, helping them develop from small acorns today into UK leading businesses. This record of success and dedication to growth is a perfect match for the current FA WSL champions, Chelsea FC Women.

Chelsea chief executive Guy Laurence said: ‘We welcome the commitment of N+1 Singer to the women’s game and we share their ambition to see it grow exponentially on and off the pitch. With their philosophy that successful businesses are built on shared equity, we could not be happier that N+1 Singer will bring their ethos and support to Chelsea FC Women as we pursue our ever more ambitious sporting and commercial targets.’

Tim Cockroft, chief executive and founder of N+1 Singer, said: ‘We are thrilled to be able to partner with Chelsea FC Women and are hugely impressed with the dedication and hard work this group of women have brought to their game; both on and off the pitch. We look forward to supporting their ambitions over the coming years and being part of their continued success.’

Joanna Osborne, head of marketing of N+1 Singer commented: ‘Chelsea FC Women are an exceptionally talented group of women who continue to inspire the football world and all those who look up to them. They are also a group of very genuine and relatable women, so we are thrilled to be able to work with them, learn off them and support their ambitions over the next few years of our partnership.’
