CMC Markets backs Sydney Sixers for KFC BBL|10 Season



5 January 2020: Leading global financial services provider, CMC Markets, is proud to announce its support of the Sydney Sixers, signing on as a key sponsor for the 2020/21 season.

As one of Australia’s top online trading providers - and the second largest retail stockbroker in the country - the partnership will see CMC Markets engage with hundreds of thousands of Sydney Sixers fans and Big Bash League followers over the summer.

The sponsorship builds on CMC’s track-record of supporting some of the nation’s key sporting teams that are so integral to Australia’s culture, including the St Kilda FC.
 
CMC Markets Head of Commercial – Asia Pacific, Cat Gallagher, said the Sixers’ focus on leadership, inclusion, and engagement makes them an excellent fit for CMC.

“Synonymous with the Australian summer, Cricket is a tradition adored by fans across the country. As one of the most successful teams in the BBL, the Club’s strong focus on inclusivity and leadership resonated strongly with us as a partner” said Gallagher.

With a new partner on board, the Sixers squad returned to the pitch with a flying start, aiming to match last season’s success as Champions of the League.

Sydney Sixers General Manager Jodie Hawkins said the club was delighted to be able to begin a new partnership with CMC Markets, particularly in such a challenging time for the economy.

The partnership will power the club’s exciting new data driven social media content.

“The Sydney Sixers are one of the country’s premier sporting clubs who provide Sydney’s best value summer entertainment,” Hawkins said.

“At the same time CMC Markets are Australia's best value online broker and between us we are both passionate about innovation and customer experience.


“We are really excited to work with CMC Markets to bring some of the BBL’s most engaging data to the devices of our fans.”

The Sydney Sixers’ KFC BBL|10 season continues on Sunday, 20 December against the Adelaide Strikers.
