OFX helps the NHL® move money at the speed of hockey with game-changing rates

The National Hockey League was founded in 1917, with four Canadian clubs playing in the League’s first season: the Montreal Canadiens, Montreal Wanderers, Ottawa Senators and Toronto Arenas.

The first U.S.-based club — the Boston Bruins — joined the NHL in 1924-25. Now, nearly 100 years later, the League has 32 clubs across North America, an international fanbase and players hailing from 25 different countries.

With the help of OFX, the Official Currency Exchange Provider of the NHL, the league can now make faster transfers across borders and between currencies for their media rights disbursements.

The NHL uses OFX for many of our currency exchange needs. We enjoy partnering with OFX in developing a clear, proactive approach when making exchange related decisions.

OFX can help the NHL and its clubs reduce transaction costs for recurring global payments or high-value transactions with consistently competitive and transparent pricing.

“OFX’s delivery of the funds is reliable, efficient and timely which in turn allows us to move our funds faster as well,” added Kalanian.

Their excellent team and easy-to-use online platform make the entire process effortless.

OFX will also be offering a Friends and Family offer for NHL employees, players and the League’s wider community, giving them competitive rates for both personal and business global money transfers, with 24/7 live support and free access to currency specialists.
