4th June, 2015 London – Today, global social trading network eToro announced they are to partner iconic east London football club, West Ham United.
The agreement will see eToro become the club’s first official social trading partner from the start of the 2015/16 season.
This three year deal comes at an exciting time for both eToro and West Ham, with eToro securing significant funding from three major banks, including Commerzbank, in the last year; as well as the development of a ground-breaking new trading platform, to be released in the coming months.
The new platform supports those making their first steps into investing but also gives more experienced traders and investors the opportunity to manage their funds and get copied by other traders.
West Ham has qualified for next season’s Europa League and are currently recruiting a new manager to take the Club to new heights. As they prepare to pay a fitting farewell to the Boleyn Ground next season and move to London’s world-famous former Olympic Stadium in August 2016, they are on course for two of the most exciting seasons in their illustrious history.
Yoni Assia, CEO and Co-founder of eToro, said: “We are delighted to be partnering West Ham United at this exciting time for both us and the club. This deal reflects a number of positive growth areas for our business as well as the ambitions of the eToro brand in the UK and across the world. We really see this as a leap into the premier league for eToro!”
Felicity Croft, Commercial Director of West Ham United, added: “We are delighted to form this partnership with eToro, and we look forward to working closely together over the years to come. Many of the biggest Clubs in England have agreed partnerships with social trading companies in recent months, and for West Ham to attract such a large and globally-successful player in this sector is a sign of our growing global reach and ambition. It is clear that leading brands can see the exciting future that lies in store for West Ham United and are buying in to our potential.”
