Investous, a retail online broker, has signed a sponsorship deal with the Dutch football club PSV Eindhoven.
Signed at the Philips Stadion on Friday, the multi-year deal makes the brokerage firm the official trading partner of the football club.
Mentioning the significant sponsorship deal, Frans Janssen, head of Commercial at PSV, said: “We have again been able to tie up with a global brand. For us, it is a confirmation that we are a big international brand and that we are still growing. We are looking forward to launching joint projects that will be of value to both PSV and Investous.”
Though neither the broker not the football club revealed the value of the sponsorship deal, Investous will gain an entire suite of rights including in-stadium LED perimeter boards, social media, hospitality, and ticketing.
