Sports sponsorships are a popular way for companies to expand their exposure. This tactic has long been used by FX and CFD brokers, like RoboMarkets. The strategy is also increasingly being used by cryptocurrency firms.
In fact, the CySEC-regulated broker has a suite of sports partnerships. As Finance Magnates reported, the company signed an official partnership agreement with the Lithuanian Basketball Club Žalgiris. Per this agreement, the broker will be an official sponsor of the basketball team in the Lithuanian Basketball League (LKL) during the 2018/2019 season which will commence in September this year.
