Sports sponsorships & forex brokers – Are they worth it?
Sports sponsorships have long been a way for businesses to extend their global reach. In fact, there is a direct correlation between the target markets of sports organizations and clubs, and FX and CFD brokers. The ROI achieved from such partnerships appears to induce a lucrative ROI for global brokers.
In the past, we have seen clubs like FC Barcelona sponsored by forex brokers. While it does give the broker good coverage, and exposure, we have seen that these types of deals are counter-productive. Although it is subject to discussion, the ROI as a result of sport sponsorship deals are often negative. However, smaller-scale sporting events have proven to generate better results for various brokers.
