Named as Arsenal’s official Forex, CFD and Binary Trading Partner, Markets.com will activate the partnership in a number of territories, with a particular focus on Asia where the Gunners have strong support following recent pre-season tours and sustained digital fan engagement.
The agreement will afford Markets.com the right to develop cross-promotional and marketing activities, including presence across Arsenal’s extensive digital media channels. In addition, Markets.com will have access to matchday hospitality at Emirates Stadium to offer exclusive experiences to their key clients.
