Russia based online broker TeleTrade and Premier League club Burnley FC have announce their partnership, whereby TeleTrade will be designated as the Official Forex Trading Sponsor of Burnley FC.
Burnley FC is one of the major success stories of late in English football. The small-market team – Burnley is a town of about 75,000 north of Manchester – qualified for the Premier League last year after winning England’s second tier league in the 2015-16 season. And, sitting sixth in Premier League play this year ahead in the standings of teams such as Tottenham, Leicester City and Everton, Burnley stands a good chance of qualifying for Champions League play next year.
TeleTrade is one of just eight Retail FX brokers which have been granted a Forex dealer license by the Bank of Russia. The agreement with Burnley FC is being concluded via the TeleTrade Group’s CySEC licensed subsidiary Teletrade-DJ International Consulting Ltd, which operates the teletrade.co.uk and teletrade.eu websites targeting UK and EU customers. TeleTrade was founded in 1994 by Russian online entrepreneur Vladimir Chernobay.
