Football Index is a UK-licensed and regulated platform, that allows users to predict the future success of football players. Shares of footballers can be bought for a chance to win daily payouts - referred as Dividends. The dividends are calculated based on player performance on match days, and their presence in the platform's Media Rankings which pay out on the top trending footballers each day. Traders can build a portfolio to capitalise on footballers' form and try to win Dividends based on their performances and media attention. The Shares value rises and falls based on supply and demand from Traders. In-demand footballers, stars and young talents will become more valuable. You can buy up to 300 shares for each footballer in one transaction, but you can do as many transactions as you wish.
Ways to generate income and boost the portfolio:
* Capital appreciation and using the "buying low, selling high" method. Buying a player that has potential and HODL can bring profit, same as any cryptocurrency. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the halt of all football competition, the overall value of footballers declined, being expected to rise again when the Leagues will re-start. Germany is the first major football league to restart, with the first scheduled game on the 15th of May. I chose Timo Werner from Red Bull Leipzig and focused my portfolio around him. As a long term investment, I bought shares in youngsters with potential.
* Match-day dividends will be paid out for the competitive performance. Match Day Dividends are won across Europe's top leagues : England, Spain, Italy, Germany, France and European football tournaments: Champions League and Europa League. Eligible competitions may also include additional competitions as and when they are available.The amount of Match Day Dividends paid out depends on the number of, and the prestige level of, the football matches taking place on that day. The top scoring defender, midfielder, and forward from each match day will win Dividends based on the number of points they accumulate using Opta stats.
* In-play Dividends are a supplement of Match-day dividends. Traders winning Dividends for every goal, assist, or clean sheet, their players produce in the Trader’s first 30 days of owning the shares.
* Media dividends are paid to users daily. Footballers are attributed points based on the nature of the mention, and the player with the most points at the end of the day finishes top of the Media Rankings, winning the Dividend for traders who own shares in him.
I started playing two weeks ago, at the end of April and in such a short time and with no football on, I made £5.43 profit.
As I said above, I built my portfolio around Timo Werner, a young player with huge potential. He is the most expensive player, and also the player who already generated some Dividends from Media activity and had the biggest value growth. Bought 11 Shares at £5.95 at the start of May and now Share value is £6.27, with a £0.32 per unit, £3.52 in total and a 6% raise in 2 weeks.
I prepared my portfolio for the re-start of the football season with star players from top teams, which will produce Match-day Dividends and when all major leagues will restart, I will add few good strikers to obtain some In-play dividends.
Long term plan consist in really cheap players and lots of shares, either youngsters from top leagues with the prospect to join elite teams or fairly unknowns ones which are linked to top teams in Europe.
I am relatively new in the game but I have a gut feeling that the game can generate residual income. If you are open-minded, you have to try it, even if as a way yo have a bit of fun not as a serious investment. In two weeks I received £1.63 Media Dividents and the value of my portfolio increased with £3.80. All this happened with no football played in Europe, which soon will change, making the premises for bigger gains. Once the Leagues will be restarted, the slow decline in value due to the Covid-19 break will stop and the value will rise again.
Using the Football Index referral and adding the unique code 605016 when registering will add £10 to your wallet once you start trading.
If you start playing now, invest into players from Bundesliga, to receive Media, Match-day and In-play Dividends. The restart of the German League will also be linked to a raise in value for the players and as will be the only re-started football league after the Covid-19 stop, will have lot of media coverage, increasing the chance for obtaining Media dividends.
