TransferMate Global Payments announced today that it has become the Official Foreign Exchange Specialist of the Laver Cup international tennis tournament. This means that the firm will exclusively provide all forex-related services for the tournament.
For those of you who aren’t aware, the Laver Cup is an indoor tournament that pits Team Europe against Team World. As can be expected, Team Europe is made up of European tennis players and Team World is composed of players outside of Europe. It is named after the Australian tennis legend Rod Laver, who is the only man to win two calendar-year Grand Slams.
