Auric International Markets Limited Clinches Sponsorship Deal with Borussia Dortmund


Singapore, 13 August 2022 – Auric International Markets Limited (AIMS), one of the world’s leading financial brokers, announced today its Asian partnership with top German football club Borussia Dortmund (BVB) for the 2022-2023 season. This momentous event marks AIMS’ first foray into sports sponsorship as part of its strategy to expand its global portfolio.

Brokered by SPORTFIVE, BVB’s exclusive commercial rights agency, this sensational partnership between AIMS and BVB will bring forth a unique and exciting opportunity for two globally recognised brands to further propel themselves synergistically. Both organisations are well-known for their drive for success, determination and commitment to excellence and this partnership will serve to enhance those qualities.

With eight Bundesliga Championship titles under its belt, BVB is one of the most successful German football clubs, both at home and internationally. Its stadium, Signal Iduna Park, is by far the biggest stadium in Germany in terms of capacity and the only stadium in the country that can hold over 80,000 spectators.

As a regional partner of BVB, AIMS will focus on the highly bankable segment of football supporters, as well as further strengthen its brand in the European and international markets. While BVB supporters can enjoy AIMS’ cutting-edge trading platform, low latency connectivity and superior liquidity, AIMS will capitalise on the football club’s assets and benefit from significant branding exposure, and develop engaging co-branded content on the club’s official social channel @BlackYellow on Instagram and Twitter (over 4M followers).
