IG Markets is sponsoring three stages of the Santos Tour Down Under cycle race in Australia in January 2011.

As Australia's No. 1 CFD provider, we are proud to be involved in one of the country’s most prestigious sporting events.

The 6-stage Santos Tour Down Under is the biggest cycling event in the southern hemisphere, and IG Markets is delighted to be official sponsor of stages 1, 2 and 6 of the tour. As sponsors of both the opening and closing stages, we have the honour of sending the elite cyclists on their way, plus celebrating as the champions cross the finishing line.

Sponsorship of this world-class event dovetails perfectly with our recent sponsorship of British cycling’s Team Sky. Cycling holds specific appeal for our target audience and supporting the sport gives us ideal exposure and an excellent opportunity to further grow our market share in Australia and around the world.
