For a second year now, Real Madrid retains its position with brand value of €1,419 million in 2020. The football club maintains the 3-year sponsorship agreement with Exness.

CFD trading platform Plus500 expanded its exposure and brand visibility with shirt sponsorship deal with Atlanta B.C. The forex broker also signed the official jersey sponsorship deal with Young Boys FC.
