Site enhancements have helped the stockmarket to grow its trader base

Football INDEX, the world’s first football stockmarket where traders can buy and sell real money shares in professional footballers, has reached 100,000 traders across the UK.

Football INDEX is a UK licensed gambling platform which provides customers with an alternative to the traditional sports betting markets. The first of its kind, Football INDEX offers customers a chance to bet on the future success of football players, rather than gambling on the short-lived outcome of football matches.

The platform operates with all the characteristics of a stock market, with traders buying units of footballers, building their football portfolios and trying to sell at a profit.

The milestone followed on from the site enhancing its offering with the Opta data powered ‘Performance Buzz’, which pays cash dividends to traders based on footballers’ on-pitch performance. It’s a feature that adds an extra element to football trading, allowing customers the chance of multiple 'wins' from a single bet.

Football INDEX’s daily Buzz Chart is a UK media monitor which determines the trending footballer in the news each day. Any traders holding futures in the trending footballer receives a dividend payout per future held.  

Football INDEX utilised these launches to reach the milestone of 100,000 UK based users and also enjoy a number of single trading days in excess of £1 million.

Commenting on the growth, Football INDEX Founder and CEO Adam Cole told TotallyGaming.com: “Reaching 100,000 users across the UK is a fantastic milestone for us; it marks Football INDEX's progress to becoming a mainstream football brand and the recognition of a football stockmarket.”

He added: “Our app has stormed up the App Store sports chart and is now more popular than many well-known household brands. Mobile is, of course, the future and our traders love to be able to check their portfolios multiple times a day.”

Totally Gaming says: As the competitive nature of football betting markets continues to increase, this unique alternative product can appeal to a wide market of heavily invested football punters, who are searching for something different to standard football markets.
