How does Football Index Work?
Football Index is essentially a footballer stock market for fans. Ever wanted to own shares in Lionel Messi? Well, now you can!
Obviously you won’t have shares in the real thing – Barcelona would have something to say about that. But Football Index allows you to trade on their virtual stock market, with prices going up and down depending on supply and demand.
Those familiar with a betting exchange will see similarities with Football Index. Prices of shares in players are displayed as available to buy and sell – just like the back and lay odds on the exchange.
The aim is, obviously, to make as much money as possible from your trading, by buying shares at low prices and selling them on when the player’s stock gets higher.
There are also three ways in which you can be paid a dividend on players whose shares you own – by them receiving lots of positive mentions in the media, ranking highly in the Opta stats or simply by scoring goals, providing assists or keeping a clean sheet in a match.

- Get started with a £1000 Money Back Guarantee
Step one is obviously to create an account and then you have to deposit funds in order to buy your initial shares. You can buy up to 300 shares in any player in a single transaction. The buy price for Messi, for example, at the time of writing was 5.13, so if you wanted to max out on the Argentine maestro in anticipation of another stellar season it would cost you £1,500+.
The great news is that Football Index are offering new customers a £1,000 Money Back Guarantee at the start of the 2019-20 season. If you have not made a profit after 30 days, you can e-mail Football Index and they will refund losses up to £1,000!
For example, if you deposited £1,000 and after 30 days, when your portfolio had been liquidated, your account balance was £820, you would be refunded £180 – provided you had not made a withdrawal from your account during that period.
How to win on Football Index
Football knowledge is obviously vital and particularly when it comes to individual players. Who is injured, who is set for a big-money transfer, who is going to bang in a hat-trick at the weekend, who is the current media darling? All of these factors should influence your trading on Football Index.
It’s a bit like picking your Fantasy Football team and making transfers as the season progresses. Who is about to hit form? Who is in danger of being dropped by their manager?
Football Index refer to their product as “the future of betting”. You are competing against other customers rather than a bookmaker and so, like a betting exchange, they make their money from a small percentage commission on trades rather than setting the odds.
The product has a 5* rating on review service Trustpilot with customers revealing, for example, that they “are 27% up in less than four months after completely converting from normal football betting to Football Index”, while another made a £1,200 profit from trading in Joao Felix shares.
