Signing Up & Getting Started
Updated: Jun 26
Recently heard about Football Index? Thinking about signing up? Read on for a few reasons why you should consider joining, the risks and a brief overview on getting started.
Following on from my previous post on the background of Football Index, hopefully you are now familiar with the basics and origin of the platform and are ready to take the plunge and sign up.
When joining Football Index, it's important to remember that it is regulated as a gambling platform and not a financial product. Despite being a very responsible gambling company and low risk in comparison to conventional gambling, it's inevitable that a certain level of risk does exist. Despite this, the opportunities to make significant profit exist and the chance of losing your stake is extremely low. As of today, I am not aware of any trader losing their full deposit and the vast majority are either in profit or have left with profit. Proof of this can be seen on the Football Index forum, Twitter and Trustpilot reviews to name a few.
Registering and signing up to Football Index is easy using the website and the app. You will be asked to confirm your details and email address.
After signing up, your first stop will be the Football Index academy.
Before depositing, it's worth mentioning the welcome offer from Football Index. This is an opportunity to trade completely risk free for a week up to £500. If you are not in profit after the first week and wish to leave, Football Index will refund your full deposit up to £500. I'm not aware of anyone taking up this offer, but it was great reassurance for myself when I first joined.
Depositing money is straightforward and goes immediately into your cash balance where you can use it to buy players. With large amounts of money being deposited or withdrawn, there are some reports in the community of Football Index carrying out Enhanced Due Diligence checks.
Enhanced Due Diligence Checks
Some traders in the Football Index community have been asked to provide proof of income/ source of funds when withdrawing and depositing. Whilst this appears to be applied more commonly to larger amounts, there is always a chance that you may be asked to provide this. Exact details of what is required will be specified by the Football Index team. Whilst frustrating, this is part of their legal obligations and necessary, and it's therefore important to remember that large amounts of money are regularly traded and it is Football Index's responsibility to carry these out.
