But how is the World Cup related to forex trading?
As we all know, football is the most famous sport in the world, followed by 3.5 billion people, mainly in Europe, Africa, South America, and Asia.
In the last years, the number of fans from the Middle East grew a lot thanks to teams like Manchester United, Real Madrid, and Barcelona, which export their brand to those Countries.
The new era players helped as well to grow this business. Players like Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo or Neymar can bring more profits than an entire football team.
