CMC Markets (LON: CMCX), a London-headquartered trading company with a global presence, has extended its sponsorship deal with New Zealand’s professional rugby team, Blues, for another three years.

The two initially inked the partnership deal in February 2021 for two seasons and the three-year extension came as the original agreement ended.

Under the renewed deal, CMC Markets continues to be Blues’ official trading partner until 2025. Further, the CMC logo will be featured on the players’ shorts and other official team apparel, along with the broker’s brand signage at Eden Park stadium.

“CMC Markets is a globally leading and pioneering trading business with a great local team who believe in the power of sport and investing in the community,” said the Chief Executive Officer of Blues, Andrew Hore.

“We are both highly competitive and aspirational organizations, and we look forward to growing together and supporting one another for years to come.”
