EZTrader, a leading binary options broker has entered into a partnership with AS Monaco FC. EZTrader now becomes the Ligue 1 football club’s official binary and FX partner, in a deal that will run through to the end of 2018.
EZTrader Becomes AS Monaco FC Official Partner
The Ligue 1 soccer club is based in Monaco and participates in the top-flight division of French soccer. From this deal, EZTrader will benefit from sharing the club’s publicity and marketing platforms.
The binary options broker will also be able to advertise at AS Monaco’s home games played at the Stade Loius II. The advertisement rights include EZTrader appearing on the stadium screen and on LED advertising screens as well. The broker will also be featured in some of the club’s media appearances, including interviews and press conferences.
EZTrader is licensed by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) to operate legally in France via a special deal. There are many binary options brokers who are not regulated to operate in France, but EZTrader is one of the few providers licensed to operate in the country.
This partnership is EZTrader’s first aggressive deal targeting the French market for binary options trading and FX. Last year, the broker ventured into the German market, collaborating with Bayer Leverkusen for two seasons.
Presently, AS Monaco is number 11 in the French Ligue 1. In the last season, the Monaco-based team finished third and was able to participate in the French Cup semi-finals. It also reached the first round of the playoffs in the Champions League though Spanish Valencia defeated AS Monaco.
AS Monaco is home to many football legends such as Manuel Amoros, Fabian Barthez, Emmanuel Petit and many others.
AS Monaco FC now joins teams such as VfL Wolfsburg and Bayer Leverkusen of the German Bundesliga and Everton FC of the English Premier League in partnering with EZTrader.
Although the financial details of the agreement were not made public, it is speculated that the two-year partnership entailed a substantial amount of money.
According to Shimon Citron, the EZTrader Chief Executive Officer, the deal was a reflection of the shared values of commitment, leadership, success and professionalism between the two partners.
Citron added, “EZTrader is looking forward to strengthening and expanding its markets in France and all across Europe.”
Vice president and CEO of AS Monaco said of the partnership, “We are extremely excited to enter this partnership with EZTraders, who will be our official partner in the coming three seasons. We look forward to collaborating with EZTraders and growing together.”
Sources close to the Citron disclosed that EZTrader was planning to get into another grand sports partnership before the end of 2015.
Both AS Monaco FC and EZTrader are well-known brands in Europe and beyond, and the partnership will benefit each partner.
This year on 2nd and 3rd November, executives from across the world will be meeting at Finance Magnates London Summit for a panel discussion on the business opportunities available to binary options brokers in the fields of FX and binary options trading.
