FX Brokers Sign Clubs All The Time, But IC Markets Takes The Cake
Sports sponsorship deals have become common ground in the world of Forex trading. Some FX broker signs a new partnership contract every other week. But not many do what IC Markets recently did.
ASIC-regulated IC Markets signed with 12 football teams that make up Spain’s La Liga and Germany’s Bundesliga professional leagues for the remainder of the 2021-22 season.
The Spanish clubs included in the sponsorship deal – brokered by sports agency Sportfive – are Real Sociedad, Athletic Club Bilbao, Getafe CF, Granada CF, RCD Mallorca and Cádiz CF.
Meanwhile, German top-flight soccer’s Bundesliga clubs that have announced IC Markets as their official partners are – Bayer Leverkusen, Hertha Berlin, Augsburg, Arminia Bielefeld, Greuther Fürth and Bochum.
That’s quite an investment.
