Fortrade Limited, a London-based forex and CFDs broker, announced on Thursday its new sponsorship deal with the top Scottish football club, Rangers.
The brokerage signed an initial 18-month contract with the Glasgow-based club, becoming its ‘official online trading partner’. The deal was brokered by sports sponsorship agency, Van Hawke Sports.
“We’re excited to welcome Fortrade as the newest member of the Rangers Commercial Partner family and are delighted to have them on board for the remainder of the 2020/21 season, as well as our historic 150th Anniversary season in 2021/22,” Rangers’ Commercial and Marketing Director, James Bisgrove said on the partnership deal.
The sponsorship will put Fortrade’s logo on the LED boards of Ibrox Stadium, the home turf of Rangers, starting from the upcoming weekend’s Old Firm match between Rangers and Celtic.
The broker will also benefit from its visibility on other displays at Ibrox and across the team’s digital platforms.
“Rangers’ support spans the entire globe, which will provide worldwide exposure for Fortrade, who will benefit from a wide range of activations, both at our iconic Ibrox Stadium and across the club’s enhanced digital platforms,” Bisgrove added.
Established in 2013, Fortrade offers CFDs trading services with forex, stocks, indices, commodities, and US treasuries. It targets both retail and institutional clients.
“We are honored to be partnering with such an esteemed football club as Rangers FC, which has established a strong pedigree over its 148-year history,” Fortrade CEO, Chris Warburton, said. “Rangers FC is a natural fit for us as Europe is our largest customer base, and we share with them a passion for striving for success whilst having an ethos of transparency and respect for our customers, fans, partners and employees.”
“In addition, this partnership with one of the most successful clubs in Europe that plays in one of the most popular leagues in the world will help us in furthering our strategy of increasing our brand recognition and expanding our customer base globally.”
