The world’s first football stock market has announced expansion into the Swedish and Canadian market

Football INDEX, the world’s first football stockmarket which enables ‘football traders’ to buy and sell real money shares in the world’s top professional footballers, has announced its expansion into Sweden and Canada.

As of this month, football fans in Sweden and Canada will be able to capitalise on their football knowledge and build a portfolio by selecting from over 2,000 footballers - including footballers from the English Premier League, UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League.

Adam Cole, Founder and CEO of Football INDEX told “Existing UK traders will really benefit from our geographical expansion as this increased reach will bring a liquidity boost that will increase pay-outs and profits.”

Football INDEX is a hybrid between a financial and football product. It aims to occupy a vacant space between sports betting and financial trading, with individual trading portfolios ranging in size from £10 - £100,000.

Powered by Opta, Football INDEX has developed an innovative platform which allows fans to earn dividends on their football portfolio 365 days a year, with multiple profit opportunities. Users – or ‘football traders’ - are typically smart football fans who find the concept of building a portfolio of footballers more intellectually rewarding than regular betting, or people with a financial background, keen to capitalise on their football knowledge.

Totally Gaming says: Football is truly loved worldwide with people from all over the globe enjoying the game, this means that for Football INDEX expansion possibilities are vast. Furthermore, although the Canadian and Swedish markets may not stand out as obvious ones for Football INDEX, the very fact they both have a strong grasp of English and boast a  proud football heritage, means they can provide a prosperous destination for the expansion of football trading.
