Burnley signs forex partner

English Premier League football club Burnley has agreed a sponsorship deal with online broker TeleTrade.

The deal names TeleTrade as the official forex trading sponsor of the club.

The deal will initially run until December 2018, although Burnley’s director of commercial affairs, Anthony Fairclough, said the partnership would hopefully run for “many years beyond”.

Fairclough added: “This is a first for Burnley Football Club, having struck a deal with a foreign exchange company, and we are proud to have finalised yet another international partner.

“It demonstrates the global platform we now find ourselves on and TeleTrade can take full advantage of our world presence and the billion households the Premier League transmits to.”

Burnley has enjoyed an impressive first half of the season and currently sits sixth in the Premier League table after 18 games.
