Klarna gets in the game, kicks off multi-year collaboration with Angel City Football Club

Klarna today announced it’s continuing to make unexpected moves by teaming up with fellow gamechanger, Angel City Football Club (ACFC) of the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL). Klarna joins Angel City FC as a Founding Partner.

Klarna is challenging outdated traditional credit and payments industry models that had lost sight of evolving consumer needs. There are now over 90 million global customers spanning 20 markets choosing Klarna as a better way to shop and pay. At the same time, ACFC–an upstart soccer franchise with a majority-women-led ownership group and front office–is flipping the traditional sports model on its head with its history-making leadership.
