Chris Smith, General Manager, CMC Markets New Zealand said:
“Since launching our office in New Zealand 15 years ago, CMC Markets has built a history of supporting talented and driven Kiwis in the local community, which is why it feels like a natural fit to be stepping on board as part of The Blues family this year. The Blues are a team I’ve watched since I was a child and really what better way to mark our anniversary than by forging a partnership with one of New Zealand’s leading sports teams. We’re looking forward to seeing the Blues success on and off the field.”
The partnership will also see CMC Markets sponsoring a new initiative that will help to power the latest game data, stats and player insights for the Blues loyal fan base to enjoy.
“Via our world class trading platform, we bring the latest market data and technology to our clients so comparably we’re really excited to help bring compelling insights to all the Blues fans,” adds Smith.
