As part of the Nasdaq Financial Framework offering, Football Index will join a growing list of new markets outside of financial services that are relying on Nasdaq’s marketplace technology to accelerate their business growth and enhance the client experience.

“The concept of what a market is has radically evolved over the past few years, something that Nasdaq as an operator and builder of markets has played an important part of first-hand,” said Paul McKeown, Senior Vice President and Head of Marketplace Operators and New Markets, Market Technology, Nasdaq. “We are focused on democratizing marketplace technology by offering essential components of matching engine technology traditionally used by financial markets, and bringing the capabilities to a cross-asset, cross-industry environment via the cloud. Football Index will use our matching engine technology to provide their clients with a platform to revolutionize how fixed-odds betting operates.”

“Nasdaq is a legendary brand,” said Adam Cole, Founder and CEO, Football Index. “We're very proud and excited to work with them to provide our order matching service, which is the powerhouse of any exchange. Football Index has come a very long way in a short period of time. Our relationship with Nasdaq is another major step in our journey to establish Football Index as a world-class exchange, worthy of the world's top footballers that are traded on it.”

About Football Index
In 2015, BetIndex Ltd launched the world's first football stock market, Football Index, where traders can buy and sell shares in professional footballers with real money. The UK licensed gambling platform provides customers with an exciting alternative to the traditional sports betting markets. The first of its kind, Football Index is revolutionary in offering customers a chance to bet on the future success of football players, rather than gambling on the short-lived outcome of football matches. The platform operates with all the characteristics of a stock market, with traders buying units of footballers (known as 'shares'), building their football portfolios and trying to sell at a profit. Traders win dividends on each share they own in players who are performing well on the pitch or trending in the media, with prices based purely on supply and demand.
