Glasgow City are thrilled to announce global finance services firm, J.P. Morgan as its new Primary Charitable Partner.
J.P. Morgan is proud of its long history in Glasgow having had a presence in the city for over 20 years. Growing from a software development house with 100 employees to a strategic technology centre that today employs more than 2,000 and one of the largest technology employers in Scotland, the firm’s commitment and investment in the city continues. J.P. Morgan invests and works with the local community through long term partnerships with schools and universities – inspiring the next generation via coding clubs, events and placements.
As City’s Primary Charitable Partner, the two organisations will work together to continue Glasgow City’s work in championing women and girls, promoting equality and diversity and providing access to as many young people as possible to women and girls football.
The agreement includes J.P. Morgan donating the front of shirt space on the Glasgow City first team jerseys to Glasgow City Foundation, the club charity, helping to highlight its ongoing work in the local and wider community.
J.P. Morgan’s commitment as Primary Charitable Partner will also include FREE season tickets to all children under the age of 16 to attend City domestic matches throughout the season, as well as continued support to the Glasgow City Foundation in subsidising its girls soccer camps to encourage access for as many young girls as possible to the sport.
J.P Morgan’s logo will be seen branded at City matches and on our social media graphics and Glasgow City TV platforms, which enjoy over a million views a year annually.
