EZTrader invests in Allsvenskan’s AIK

Swedish Allsvenskan football team AIK has announced a three-year partnership with online binary options trading company EZTrader.

The agreement expands EZTrader’s involvement in European football to Sweden after it signed sponsorship deals with German Bundesliga club Bayer Leverkusen and Dutch Eredivise side Feyenoord earlier this year.

Shimon Citron, chief executive of EZTrader, said: “We have seen a tremendous growth in Sweden and throughout Europe during the last year. We are happy for a partnership with a popular Swedish football team and hope that this venture will enhance our presence in Sweden, Scandinavia and throughout Europe.”

AIK finished third in the recently concluded 2014 Allsvenskan season.

The partnership is understood to be a three-season deal, from 2019-20 to 2021-22, and builds on AXA’s existing Global Partner agreement with Liverpool.

The deal is the largest ever sponsorship investment in UK women’s sport and comes less than a year after the league went fully professional in September 2018.

Under the five-year global deal, Oppo will become the first Official Smartphone Partner of The Championships, Wimbledon, as the event is officially known.

US sportswear brand Nike is paying about $7.5m (€6.7m) per year to sponsor China’s League of Legends Pro League (LPL), according to industry sources.
