Manchester City Football Club have announced a new partnership with GAIN Capital Holding Inc. The deal will see the global provider of online trading services become City’s Official Online Trading Partner.

The unique partnership will provide GAIN with key insights in to Manchester City, providing an insider’s view of how the club is run via the players, business operations and backroom staff. 

The partnership was announced by Manchester City and Belgium Captain, Vincent Kompany, who was also unveiled as FOREX.com’s Global Ambassador.

Tom Glick, Chief Commercial and Operating Officer for Manchester City Football Club, added: “GAIN Capital and Manchester City are both leaders in our respective fields, and our partnership is rooted in the recognition that the fundamental elements of success in football and trading are the same: strong preparation and superior execution. GAIN’s plans to leverage this connection are unique in sports sponsorship and we look forward to working with them.”
