What exactly is the Football Index?

Football Index is a stockmarket game where players, known as Traders, take a position on the “future success” of footballers with real money. It’s a UK licensed and regulated fixed-odds gambling product.

Traders place bets by buying ‘Shares’ associated with Footballers, in the belief that they will:

a) Earn Dividends by topping the “Media Rankings” and “Match Day Rankings”

b) Increase in value

The bet is innovative in that it provides multiple opportunities to win small payouts known as Dividends. The top ranking footballers in the “Media Rankings” and “Match Day Rankings” will be eligible for payment of a Dividend, depending on the amount of, and the prestige level of, the football matches taking place on that day. Dividends are paid out according to the “Dividend Table”. We may pay additional Dividends for promotional reasons, and review and update the Dividend Table.

The price of a Share is determined purely by demand within the game. The more Traders buy say Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi, the higher the price.
