FxPro, a leading global retail broker in FX and CFDs today signals its strategic intent with confirmation that it will be sponsoring English Premier League football teams in both London and Birmingham.
FxPro has recently signed agreements to be the main shirt sponsor for both Fulham Football Club in London, and Aston Villa Football Club in Birmingham.
Fulham FC Main Sponsor
Alistair Mackintosh, Chief Executive of Fulham Football Club commented:
“I am delighted to welcome FxPro to Fulham during a period of such success and optimism on and off the pitch. It is always a cause for celebration when you have an opportunity to work with a brand that shares your commitment and vision for success. FxPro already has global presence and, partnering with a Premier League football club, will enhance this even further. Clearly this has additional benefits for Fulham’s global reach which, following the European success of last season and the recognition the Club received worldwide, is something that we are extremely excited about.”
Principal Partner Aston Villa FC
Paul Faulkner, Chief Executive of Aston Villa Football Club commented:
“We are extremely pleased and excited to enter into this new partnership with FxPro. It reflects our continued growth as a Club after a season in which we finished sixth in the Premier League for the third straight year while twice reaching Wembley - competing in the Carling Cup final and FA Cup semi-final. Equally, we are pleased to confirm that Acorns will be our Official Charity Partner and in meetings involving both FxPro and Acorns a close working alliance has already been forged.”
FxPro is committed to expanding its profile in key markets so the choice of popular and well supported teams, in the UK’s two most populous and economically strong cities are a natural fit for the future ambitions of the business.
Denis Sukhotin, Director of FxPro commented:
“FxPro is committed to developing the strength of our brand through sponsorship. Being the main sponsor of two legendary football teams in two great cities is our way of sharing success with clients and pledging support to fans. It will also benefit the teams as we do more charitable activities within the community and around the world. The Premier League is the world's most popular and most watched sporting league, with an estimated worldwide following of more than a billion people in 202 countries - so the ability to grow our brand recognition in this way is significant.”
