Manchester City Football club has expanded it’s relationship with AvaTrade.

The online broker was previously the British football club’s regional partner in China, Asia and Latin America.

Now, AvaTrade will become Manchester City’s official global online trading partner.

Damian Willoughby, Senior Vice President of Partnerships at City Football Group, said: “We are delighted to announce this new partnership with AvaTrade and extend our relationship together.

“We have been impressed with AvaTrade’s commitment to innovation and leading the way in its industry – values that we share as Manchester City. We are excited to continue our relationship with AvaTrade and help engage with more City fans across the globe.”

Just over a week ago, the team launched an online Fifa team in China, in what it describes an an ‘historic’ development.

Set to play in the FSL Online Star League, the team will consist of five players, including Zhang Jun, last season’s Most Valuable Player, as well as Aruya and Liu Chao, who have both excelled in the FSL over the past two seasons.

The club also revealed that fans could have the chance to fill the remaining two slots in the team:

”For a chance to participate in the competition, which is open to supporters in China, follow Manchester City’s WeChat account, “mcfcofficial”, and register to find out more about the selection process in the coming weeks.”
