CEO relishes "huge honour" as Football Index achieves Sunday Times accolade

By Tim Poole

Football Index has ranked second in The Sunday Times' Sage Tech Track 100, which CEO Adam Cole has described as a "huge honour."

The accolade is an impressive one, considering the site was launched in October 2015.

It has over 500,000 users, its own podcast and a YouTube channel, allowing players to buy and sell shares in footballers.

The operator works in a fashion that allows Football Index to take commission off every trade, rather than a player vs bookmaker scenario.

Adam Cole, Football Index CEO, said: “This is a huge honour for us that recognises the brilliant growth of Football Index, and the product we’ve developed.

"Given the UK’s powerful tech sector, climbing to second place is a fabulous result, establishing us as one of the UK’s most significant fintech success stories.”
