Fans at Craven Cottage will be getting used to the Spreadex logo as the Championship promotion contenders have signed the firm up on a two year deal. The deal, which lasts over the next two seasons, installs the firm as their principal partner.
Spreadex branding will be displayed prominently on the back of the new Fulham kits which are due to be revealed later this week before a pre-season friendly against Charlton.
The partnership will include rights to LED perimeter board advertising and access to players and the head coach. They will also be displayed prominently across the club’s social media channels, website and CRM.

Spreadex CFO said
“We are delighted to be partnering with Fulham Football Club for the next two seasons and feel privileged to now become a part of the Fulham family. This is a great club with a long history and tremendous reputation, and the deal signifies Spreadex’s continued growth plans as a company.
Spreadex are entering into the spirit of things with a number of fan engagement activities across its digital channels including competitions for signed shirts. The deal continues after a challenging year for the firm. With sporting events cancelled due to the pandemic, despite an increase in online financial trading profits fell by 24% with revenue down 8%. However, with sport back on the menu it’s clearly aiming to bounce back strongly.
