According to the official contract between the companies the brokerage is the Official Global Forex & Online Financial Trading Partner. The company’s logo will also be displayed on the backdrops during post-match interviews.
The club and the brokerage will engage in some games and experiences to cater to football and trading fans including hospitality tickets, training sessions visits and travels with the team on away European games.
Crucially for the broker’s digital marketing strategy, Swissquote and Manchester United will be engaging fans on social media via members of the Red Devils squad throughout the season. With over 68 million likes on the football club’s page, the message of Swissquote can reach a vastly diverse and global audience.

So far our partnership has seen us offer fans engaging content with their favourite United stars, highlighting the parallels between the worlds of football and Forex trading.”
