Football Index allows fans to immerse themselves in the excitement of the football transfer market, and it is up to you to make the right choices

Twice a year, football’s transfer window opens and the sporting world descends into a frenzy of rumour, hyperbole, tension and even outright panic. For fans, it can be a time of great excitement and optimism as they scan the media for news of the signing that is going to transform their team’s fortunes.

When a big name does sign, predictions abound as to how he might fare in his new surroundings, and Football Index is the gambling platform that allows fans to put their judgement to the test in the hope of making tax-free profits.

The Football Stockmarket incorporates NASDAQ technology and is proving immensely popular, with roughly £500m traded so far in 2020. Traders buy and sell shares in players; whose values increase in line with demand. When players perform well on the field or receive media attention, traders can earn dividends, with £3.2m paid out in September alone.

Traders take a chance on the players’ fortunes and for the players themselves, transferring to another club can also represent a gamble. It is the next step in their career and the wrong move could set them back years. Make the right choice and their profile could be elevated beyond all recognition.

Take Bruno Fernandes, who was already starring for Sporting Clube de Portugal before his January 2020 switch to Manchester Utd. Fernandes has been a stand-out performer at Old Trafford and, having made the move from a relatively low-profile league to arguably the world’s biggest club, his value rose dramatically in 2020, with a media and match day yield of 76% on Football Index up to October.

There is also Jadon Sancho, who in 2017 left Manchester City and perhaps the world’s greatest coach in Pep Guardiola to join Borussia Dortmund. Since then, Sancho’s goals and assists have seen him become a regular for England and one of the world’s most sought-after talents. A combination of Sancho’s stellar on-field displays, and constant transfer speculation has seen traders on Football Index benefit from match day and media yields of 41% in 2020.

But for every Fernandes or Sancho, there’s a Fernando Torres. After prolific spells with Atlético Madrid and Liverpool, the striker swapped red for blue and signed for Chelsea in 2011. Although he won major honours at Stamford Bridge, including the UEFA Champions League, Torres’ personal performances never hit the heights of his Anfield days, and his career petered out somewhat.

Every season, players and managers stake their reputation on the moves they make in the transfer market, and Football Index provides its traders with the opportunity to do exactly the same. How much could your football knowledge be worth?
