Football fans and trading passionates are being brought more closely, thanks to a new recent sponsorship contract signed by easyMarkets and the Spanish football club Real Betis Balompié. One has close to 20 years of experience in the trading world, and the other a 100+ years tradition in Spanish football, but both believe in the Green and White colours.
Operating in Australia, Europe, and LATAM countries, easyMarkets is one of the icons of the trading industry, already establishing a culture dominated by transparency, honesty, and simplicity. The sponsorship contract with Real Betis will put the easyMarkets logo on the shirt front and provide additional exposure to a brand that had already proved its potential.
Real Betis starts with major improvements
The other side will also have significant benefits since Real Betis had been struggling for years with financial instability. About 10-15 years ago, the club was winning the Copa del Rey and also it was a constant participant in the two important European competitions. Even after the top management had been changed, the club had to face relegation to Segunda Division, where it only spent one year.
Signs of improvement had been seen in the past season when the team managed to get past the group stages of the UEFA Europa League. Things did not work out well in the domestic league, despite big away wins against Real Madrid and Barcelona. Unfortunately, Betis finished on the 10th spot, which means the 2019-2020 season will see the team trying to accomplish as much as it can in the Copa del Rey and in the title race.
The hardest work will fall on the shoulders of former Espanyol coach Rubi, who joined Betis approximatively two months ago. He will have to integrate the new players Emerson, Fekir Nabil, and Alfonso, making them work jointly with Cristian Tello, Marc Bartra, and the other current players.
A hard challenge, then affordable matches
Losing at home against Valladolid had not been the best start for Betis, which has great expectations following the summer changes. Unfortunately, with the keeper sent out since the 8th minute, Rubi had to take on a more conservative approach, which worked until the 89th minute, when Valladolid scored the winner.
With the first round at their back, Betis heads for the toughest match of the season against FC Barcelona at Camp Nou, a stadium, where “Los Verdiblancos” shocked the entire world last year, after grabbing an unexpected 3-4 victory. Handicaps can be spotted on both sides, with Betis forced to use a young keeper, and with Barcelona struggling to find its rhythm in the absence of Lionel Messi.
The road is long and we’re just at the beginning. No matter what happens at the Sunday match, Real Betis will have plenty of time to prove that the new coach, the new players, and especially the easyMarkets partnership had all been for the better and the team will show improvements.
