Football Index Review

What is Football Index?

Football Index is the worlds first football stock market, offering a completely new way to trade. Instead of buying shares in businesses, you buy ‘stock’ in Football Players around the globe.

Football Index is nowhere near it’s peak. Accumulators are fun for 90 minutes, but a bet on Football Index lasts for 3 years!

Tom Paddock

The price of players are controlled by other traders, if a player is in demand, he will be surging in price. If traders are selling a player, he would fall in price. There are reasons why a player would rise or fall in price, of which I will explain a little further down.

Just like shares, dividends will be paid out for players that are successful. To be successful they must perform well, either ON, or OFF the pitch.

To be successful at Forex trading you need to either be ‘in the know’, or take a couple of gambles. However, with Football Index, you can make money with your knowledge of football! It’s a must for any football fan.

Playing Football Index

Players are known as futures on Football Index. You have to play with real money, there’s no option to play with Demo Funds. It’s very easy to deposit, but buying a player is even easier!

Finding Your Star

The first stage is undoubtedly the most compelling stage of purchasing a player. There’s only one thing I prefer, that’s seeing the player make a strong profit!

At this stage, you will be researching and deciding which player is the best for your portfolio.

The main question you want to ask yourself is: Why are you buying this player?

Don’t just buy a player for the sake of it, you need to make a well informed decision, don’t trade out of boredom, or feel like you must force a trade.

I have added an image of the Football Index search results, I have narrowed down my sights to Josh Tymon. Youth with potential, £0.36.

He’s very low priced, but this is due to the fact that he’s a youth player, not yet an establised first team player.

It’s worth noting that when buying youth players, they won’t be increasing by £1-2 overnight, they will be long term holds which may take a while to blossom.

Perform some Analysis

Before jumping in and buying the player, take your time to finalise your research. Make sure you have a good feeling about the trade, as this is something which in the past has led to me selling a trade too soon.

Fortunately, Football Index has some great tools (and even more on the way!), which allow us an insight into the history of our new potential signing.

All that you need to do, is click on a players name, in this case it’s Josh Tymon still.

You get valuable info, such as Playing Position, Club etc.

However, it’s the trading chart which we want to see. What is your chosen players Price Trend? Is he currently trading at an all time high? (This is something I like to avoid)

In this instance, Tymon was introduced to the market at a price which is very close to his IPO. He’s actually around 2p above his IPO, meaning minimal risk.

Be sure to check out the trading graph of your prospective player, it can be really useful!

Complete Your Purchase

Let’s do it! We are going to buy our player!

When you click the buy button, you will be taken to the ‘order screen’. This is a screen which pops up asking you how many shares you would like to buy.

I have selected to buy 4 shares in Tymon, not my heaviest trade it’s safe to say!

This screen is quite handy, if you press BUY MAX, it will allocate you as many shares as you can afford.

Alternatively, use the Plus or Minus icons to increase or decrease the number of shares.

Confirm the amount of shares is correct and press buy.

Congratulations! You are now a Football Index trader. It’s as easy as that!

Monitor Your Portfolio

The final step is to watch your player flourish, for this you will need to access your portfolio.

Simply click portfolio the top of the page, which will then show you all of the players you have stakes in.

It’s a handy screen, which gives you a great overview with a single glance.

You can see the Player, number of shares, Price Purchased, Current Price, Profit & Current Sell Prices.

Time to sit back, put the kettle on and let your portfolio mature!

Think about Diversifying

There are many different strategies to Implement on Football Index. You aren’t tied down to one, the best traders can trade all methods!

Flip. This is the fastest way to turn a profit. Buy Low, Sell High.
Media Buzz Portfolio. Obtain a portfolio which is full of players who are in the Headlines. Neymar, Harry Kane, Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and so on.
Performance Buzz Portfolio. Obtain a portfolio full of the best performers. Neymar, Parejo, Otamendi, Fekir and so on.
Wonderkids. Purchase young players for cheap, who will then become the next stars. Similar to flipping, but very long term holds.
Come and Try Football Index!

Once you have registered and deposited funds, you are now able to access the exchange & build a portfolio!

How Can I make profit from my Portfolio?

There are various ways to make money from your Football Index Portfolio. This review covers the basic terms, but you can read the in depth guide here******.

The Ways to make money are through Capital Appreciation, In Play Dividends, Match Day Dividends & Media Dividends. The best way to make money is to gear up a portfolio which can get you all of the above!

So let’s take a little tour into the above terms.

Capital Appreciation (Price Increase)

This is the increase in price of any assets that you hold (in this case a player on the platform). If you purchase a player that’s £1.70, and he rises to £2.00, you have £0.30 of capital appreciation. If you aren’t sure how a players price increases, check out that guide.

The likelihood is that your players price will increase because he is winning dividends, so it’s likely that Capital Appreciation is tied into either Match Day or Media Buzz.
There are also a few other examples such as wonderkids breaking onto the football scene, but these are less common.

In Play Dividends

In-Play Dividends are paid out when your player performs a certain action during a Football Match. The Payouts are:

– £0.01p per Goal for a Forward or Midfielder

– £0.02p per Goal by a Defender or Goalkeeper

– £0.01p per Assist by any position

–  £0.01p for a Starting Goalkeeper Clean Sheet over the full game

These payouts are valid for the first 30 days ownership of the share you purchased.

Match Day Dividends

Match Day Dividends are awarded to the Top Players on any Match Day. If there’s a game being played Internationally, or from the Top 5 Leagues (Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga, Ligue 1 or Serie A). Recently, Football Index have also included Champions League & Europa League in the Match Day Payout.

Football Index take Data from Opta, who are the most reputable Sports Analysis & Data tool for professional sports. They take this data and convert it into ‘points’, which the top scoring player will then win Dividends.

A Payout is given to the best Defender, Midfielder & Forward. The Overall top scoring player is then given an additional dividend, meaning there’s 4 types of Match Day Dividend to earn on any game day.

Here’s the scoring table.

Media Dividends

When I first started Football Index, I found Media Buzz Bizarre, but it’s become one of my most favourite types of dividend due to the predictability.

For every newspaper column you player receives, he will score points towards his final ‘Media Buzz Score’. This is a dividend which is paid out every single day, including Match Days. Football Index scrape news stories for every single player on the platform, using the following news sources;

Talksport, UEFA, The FA, ESPN, FIFA, Football League, Daily Mail, Daily Star, The Times, Telegraph, Independent, Daily Express, The Guardian, Metro, Daily Mirror, BBC Sport, Football365,, Huffington Post and Sky Sports.

Unlike the In-Play Dividends, Match Day Dividends and Media Dividends will be paid out for the duration that you have that player in your portfolio.

Players on the Platform
You may find that a player you want to purchase isn't yet on the platform. Once you register, you can request for players you wish to be added.

Is Football Index gambling or Investing?

Football Index is a licensed gambling product, which I have tried & tested using the scam tester. I would classify Football Index as a gambling product, but one which is much safer than using a traditional bookmaker. Why?

When you place a bet with a bookmaker, if your outcome doesn’t happen immediately, for example Mohamed Salah scores first, your bet will expire and your full stake is lost.

On Football Index, if you own Mohamed Salah at £4.50 a share but he doesn’t perform well for a few games, his price may drop. From my experience he wouldn’t drop anymore than 10%, meaning you still have £4.05 of your stake left in Salah. Aswell as this, you get to hold Salah in your portfolio for 3 years, so you can simply wait for his form to bounce back.

I must stress though it is a gambling product, which is in it’s infancy. As the platform grows, player prices will also grow. I’ve seen Neymar grow from £1.95, all the way to £7 as the platform expands. I have lost money on trades, I am sure every trader will. You can’t win them all!

Final Thoughts

I have been gambling online for around 8 years, but I’m really not sure how Football Index didn’t exist before. It’s a revolutionary product which enables users of all backgrounds to get involved and make some money. If you don’t have a huge bankroll, there are players which are earning dividends from just £0.30! If you only gamble for the excitement factor, I think that the Match Day Rankings are as exhilarating as an accumulator, although the returns aren’t the same.

If you fancy yourself as a Youth Talent Scout, or like playing Football Manager, this is your way to make money from your knowledge of future stars.

My final bit of advice before the FAQ Recap is to Register at Football Index. They have created a special promotion to get all new joiners familiar with the website. You can claim any losses up to £500 back, in your first 7 days of trading on the platform. Get yourself started, throw anywhere up to £500 in and test the waters.

You will love it, or hate it. (You could say I hated it initially, but now I’m back).

In January, I decided to add to my portfolio. New Year, New Me… ha!

I opted to return to the ‘Big Boys’, the higher priced players who regularly earnt dividends. I added:

Harry Kane, Trent-Alexander Arnold, Memphis Depay, Mikel Oyarzabal, Mohamed Salah, Marcus Rashford, Joshua Kimmich.

I also took a punt on; Ibrahim Sangare, Federico Chiesa, Javairo Dilrosun & Aaron Martin.

This is in addition to my portfolio, so I also have my usual picks such as Sterling, Mane, Griezmann etc.

Football Index have released the Important News today that they will be INCREASING DIVIDEND PAYOUTS again. The full breakdown is to follow, but this is huge for Football Index & all of it’s traders.
