Toronto Wolfpack and AFEX Extend Partnership
Toronto Wolfpack are pleased to announce a renewed partnership with Associated Foreign Exchange Limited (AFEX). The trusted global payment and risk management solutions specialist has been involved with the Wolfpack from the inaugural season and will continue as the Official Foreign Exchange Partner in 2019.
