Company News /
Axi Team

5th of May 2023


Leading global Forex and CFD broker Axi has announced an expansion of its partnership portfolio, with the inclusion of Brazilian football club Esporte Clube Bahia as the team’s Global Online Trading Partner.
Based in Salvador, the first capital of Brazil, the club also holds the title of the first champion in Brazilian football history and plays in the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A, Brazil's top league. Founded in 1931, the club has won the Brasileirão title twice – in 1959 and in 1988 – and their state title a total of 50 times.


Louis Cooper, Chief Commercial Officer at Axi, said:

“This new partnership with Esporte Clube Bahia is an exciting addition to our sponsorship portfolio, and one that compliments the global nature of our Man City relationship, allowing us to focus on a region that’s been important to us for some time and continues to grow. Our shared ambition and commitment to excellence make us ideal partners; giving our traders and clients the ‘edge’ has always been at the core of our values. At the same time, Esporte Clube Bahia have proven themselves for their perseverance and resilience, with their aspiration guiding them to success.”


Raul Aguirre, Bahia SAF, CEO, commented:

“We are thrilled about our new partnership with Axi. With over 15 years of expertise, Axi has a proven track record of innovation and dependability. We look forward to a great collaboration and working together to take both the club and Axi to the next level.
This partnership announcement follows yesterday’s exciting official closing with City Football Group. We are already seeing momentum as we embark on the newest chapter of Bahia’s great history.”

Apart from the new partnership with Esporte Clube Bahia, Axi has been an Official Trading Partner of Bahia’s new sister club the English Premier League side, Manchester City FC, for three seasons. The broker has recently announced a renewal deal, extended to include the sponsorship of the Manchester City Women’s Football Club, as well.

About Esporte Clube Bahia SAF

Esporte Clube Bahia (EC Bahia) is a Brazilian Série A club based in Salvador, Bahia State. Founded in 1931, the Tricolor has won two National titles, fifty (50) Bahia State Championships, and the championship of the Northeast eight times. EC Bahia boasts a proud heritage, winning the first Brazilian Championship in 1959 and being the only club outside of the South of Brazil to win two league titles. EC Bahia also has a successful women’s team, who compete in the top flight of the Brazilian Championship and are six-time Bahia State Champions.

EC Bahia plays in the blue, white, and red of the Bahia State flag and is the most supported club in Northern Brazil. The team plays at the 60,000-capacity Itaipava Arena Fonte Nova stadium, refurbished for the 2014 World Cup, and trains at the new Evaristo de Macedo facility.

In line with a current trend in the Brazilian football market, in April 2023 EC Bahia created a new entity, Esporte Clube Bahia SAF (Bahia SAF), to replace it as a football team and carry on its impressive heritage.
