Forex Broker ThinkMarkets Working Hard On Brand Promotion

This latest deal demonstrates the burgeoning growth of sports sponsorships which are a brand presence within any promotional slot of the football matches. These are becoming extremely popular in the financial services industry and provide huge promotional markets as they are positioned in front of millions of fans worldwide.

Top Premier League clubs such as Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool have huge followings all over the globe with hundreds of millions of fans. They generate huge volumes of revenue through the sale of club jerseys and other merchandise, so a sponsorship deal is seen as highly lucrative for any potential sponsor.

ThinkMarkets is expecting to continue promoting its brand with this extremely high-profile sponsorship deal. It follows a trend of forex companies following sports betting sites in the sponsorship of football clubs – Jamie Clarke, Editor of the Sportslens new betting sites portfolio, said it’s because “trading has many of the addictive qualities and propensity to spend money that sports betting has.”
