ChannelAdvisor will support Fulham F.C. to increase its global e-commerce footprint on marketplaces
LONDON, UK — Jan. 23, 2019 — ChannelAdvisor Corporation (NYSE:ECOM), a leading provider of cloud-based e-commerce solutions that enable brands and retailers to increase global sales, today announced Fulham Football Club has turned to ChannelAdvisor to support its marketplace expansion. Fulham, one of the leading Premiership League football clubs, will leverage ChannelAdvisor Managed Marketplaces to help optimise and grow its e-commerce sales globally.
Fulham has a loyal customer base, and with just 30 percent of its current merchandise sales occurring online, the football club recognised the opportunity to expand its online footprint and attract new fans, particularly from international markets. Prior to working with ChannelAdvisor, Fulham had a limited catalogue of products available on Amazon UK. Now with its full inventory live on Amazon UK with ChannelAdvisor, Fulham has its eyes set on international opportunities, and targets to a launch on Amazon US soon.
“The e-commerce industry is changing rapidly, and it’s crucial that retail businesses can keep pace. With online marketplaces like Amazon constantly evolving, we wanted to determine not only the right strategy, but also work with the right technology partner to help us rapidly expand on this global channel,” explains Sean Davies, Head of Retail and Licensing, Fulham Football Club. “ChannelAdvisor has the perfect mix of platform, tools and expertise to support us on our growth journey and their guidance and advice throughout the process have been unparalleled. With ChannelAdvisor Managed Services we have a team of e-commerce professionals guiding our business strategy and industry insights — while leveraging the full power of the ChannelAdvisor platform. We simply couldn’t have achieved that in-house.”
“Fulham is an iconic brand and we are excited to be supporting them in their e-commerce strategy. Marketplaces can be a powerful growth-accelerator for brands around the world, and we look forward to seeing how Fulham attracts new customers and enables their e-commerce sales to grow as a result,” said Jon Maury, Managing Director, EMEA at ChannelAdvisor.
ChannelAdvisor Managed Marketplaces streamlines time-consuming tasks into comprehensive strategies to help increase visibility and sales on Amazon, eBay, Walmart and more.

Additionally, ChannelAdvisor’s in-depth analytics will provide a customised sales approach. Following on from a launch on Amazon US, Fulham expects to expand onto additional marketplaces in the new year.
