PRINCIPAL PARTNER - ALPARI
Alpari, a leading global FX broker, has been the principal sponsor of West Ham United since 2013. It's the club's dedication, passion and the loyalty of our supporters that have attracted Alpari to West Ham United because Alpari values them as highly as we do.
The Alpari companies worldwide first established a relationship with our club back in July 2011 when Alpari UK became an official sponsor. The West Stand has since been known as the Alpari Stand and Alpari's name features across the stadium and the club's literature.
In February 2013 Alpari extended its commitment to West Ham United by signing a three-year, multimillion-pound deal to become the principal sponsor from the start of the 2013/14 season. 'Alpari FX Trading' now features on West Ham United's team kit and apparel.

We marked the signing of the principal partnership by visiting the Alpari trading floor for a live trading contest. Sam Allardyce, Kevin Nolan, Matt Jarvis and Joe Cole competed against each other in the online FX markets, bringing together the worlds of football and online trading. Kevin remained cool when the markets heated up and won the contest with a balance of £4,457 in virtual money.
Thanks to events such as these, we quickly found out why there's so much excitement around trading FX. If you want to see Sam and the players trading, watch the video of the contest.
