Plus500 will be the main sponsor of Atlético de Madrid for the next two seasons. The multinational company, market leader in the provision of Contracts For Difference (CFD’s), and our entity have reached an agreement by which its image will feature on the front of the new shirt, officially presented this Wednesday, the 24th of June.
The relationship of both organisations started with the agreement reached earlier this year, whereby Plus500 became one of the sponsors of Atlético de Madrid, being featured in the back of our shirt since the first leg match of the King’s Cup round of 16 against Real Madrid at the Vicente Calderón Stadium.
Since then, there have been talks to expand the framework of the agreements between the two entities to materialize this commitment whereby Plus500 becomes the team’s main sponsor in the 2015-16 season.
Plus500 has developed and operates an online trading platform for retail customers to operate with CFDs internationally in more than 2,100 different underlying international financial instruments including shares, ETFs, currencies, indices and commodities.
The company allows retail customers to invest in CFDs in more than 50 countries. The platform is accessible from multiple operating systems (Windows, smartphones (Android and iOS) and tablets (Android and iOS)) and the Internet. The Directors believe that the success of the company to date has been mainly due to the proprietary technology that it has developed and continues to develop to support the trading platform. The trading platform has been designed to be as intuitive and easy to use as possible. The trading platform has been adapted into 31 languages. The Directors believe that this emphasis on technology, along with the company's specific online marketing strategy, has helped to differentiate the company from its competitors.
The company is listed on the AIM, a market operated by the London Stock Exchange, under the trading symbol 'PLUS'.
