Barclays football

For over two decades, our partnership with the Premier League has seen the league go from strength to strength, whilst at the same time we have invested heavily in supporting football in the community.

Now, we’re proud to be the first title sponsor of the Barclays Women’s Super League. We’ve made the largest ever commercial investment in women’s sport in the UK, and are committed to giving girls in England equal access to football in schools by 2024. 

The Barclays Women’s Super League is back!

They’ve starred on the world stage, and now they’re back to the League they call home. The Barclays Women’s Super League returns on 1 October….are you ready?

The Barclays Women’s Super League has shown why it's Super once again!

A season of big players rising and new stars shining. Non-stop action to the final whistle, as told by Abi, award-winning spoken word artist and Let Girls Play ambassador. This was prime Barclays.

Prime Barclays!

Another Premier League season filled with knockouts, surprises and jam packed action. ‘The Barclays’ will never stay true to script and that’s just the way we like it!
