Messi has just scored a Hat trick, can I buy him and claim dividends?
Unfortunately, you can’t. Unless Barcelona get the 11:00AM kickoff, this won’t be possible as Football Index set a trading deadline, allowing for a dividend ‘cut off’ point.
If you want to earn dividends for any player, you need to purchase shares before 14:00PM.
You can still purchase after this deadline, the markets don’t ‘close’, however, you won’t be receiving a payout.
