MELBOURNE Football Club is proud to announce that it has signed IG – Australia’s leading contract for difference (CFD) and foreign exchange (FX) provider* – as a major partner for the next two years.
IG is a global market leader, with offices in 16 countries and more than 125,000 active clients worldwide making more than 4.9 million transactions per month. Headquartered in London, IG is an established member of the FTSE 250, with a market capitalisation of AU $3.96 billion, and net global trading revenue of more than AU $666 million.
IG’s logo will feature on the coaches’ apparel and media assets until at least the end of 2016.
IG will also gain in-stadium exposure at home games, as well as a strong presence across the club’s digital media platforms.
Melbourne Football Club chief executive officer Peter Jackson said the partnership is a great fillip for the club.
“We are absolutely delighted to have entered into a new partnership with IG – a global, market-leading company,” he said.

“It is a mutual benefit for both parties, and a testament to the continued growth of this club – both on and off the field. We are excited about the opportunities for both businesses, and are genuinely optimistic about laying the foundation for a long-term partnership over the next two years.”

IG Group’s head of Asia Pacific Tamas Szabo said: “We are very excited about our partnership with the Melbourne Football Club. Their heritage as pioneers of Australian Rules football matches IG’s proud history as innovators in online trading on financial markets. We're going long Melbourne.”
