We’re excited to share that US Mobile is the Barnsley Football Club’s newest Club Partner — as such, all team shirts will have the US Mobile logo on full display for the remainder of the current season.
How to watch Barnsley F.C. play in the new shirts
If you’re not able to catch Barnsley F.C. sporting the iconic US Mobile team shirts this season, fret not — the partnership will continue for the entirety of the next season as well. The team’s first game in the new shirts will be their away game against the Forest Green Rovers on Saturday, April 15th — after that, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to cheer the team on as they play in their sleek new shirts.
“We are incredibly excited to begin this new partnership with Barnsley F.C. We can’t wait to introduce Barnsley F.C. to millions of new fans in the United States and support the team as they fight to make it to the championship this season,” Ahmed Khattak, CEO and founder of US Mobile said in an announcement by Barnsley F.C. earlier today. “And beyond that, we’re excited to be supporting them in the season to come as well — I’m positive that this will be a prolific long-term partnership.”

About Barnsley F.C.
With 24 wins under their belt this season, Barnsley F.C. is an absolutely stellar team.
They’re also the first sports team we’ve sponsored as a company, so this is a pretty new arena for us. We’re thrilled about this opportunity to introduce millions of soccer fans in the United States to Barnsley F.C. and we can’t wait to see them make it to the championship.
And it’s an exciting milestone for the soccer team too. Barnsley F.C. noted in its announcement on Friday morning that their partnership with US Mobile is the team’s biggest financial deal of its kind to date. They anticipate that the deal will enable the team to enhance fan engagement and brand awareness.
“We are happy to welcome US Mobile to Barnsley F.C. and are pleased to begin what we expect to be a fruitful relationship for both parties with the ability to elevate both parties’ brand recognition,” Khaled El-Ahmad, the team’s CEO, said in an announcement on Friday morning.
“I want to credit Jon Flatman and George Johnston for the hard work to bring US Mobile to Barnsley F.C. and I look forward to welcoming CEO and founder Ahmed Khattak and his team to Oakwell in the near future to enjoy the finish of an improved season on and off the pitch,” El-Ahmad added.
This international partnership comes at a particularly appropriate time for us — we’re currently hard at work to launch Global by US Mobile.
What is Global by US Mobile?
Global by US Mobile allows international travelers to connect to local networks instantly using eSIM technology, without having to buy a SIM card from local carriers or deal with the costly roaming fees on other carriers.
Since 2019, we’ve offered our customers international data in more than 150 countries. But Global by US Mobile will take things a step further. With the forthcoming launch of Global by US Mobile, we’ll be expanding our footprint significantly, to provide coverage on more than 300 local network operators — no matter where you’re traveling to or from, you’ll have access to the best local network as soon as you arrive.
We recently opened up beta testing for Global by US Mobile — learn more about the platform and get early access by clicking the button below
As we prepare for Global by US Mobile’s official take-off, we believe this partnership with a UK-based soccer team is an exciting opportunity to gain visibility in a locale that will certainly play a major role in the app’s success.
