As the effects of the COVID-19 virus spreads across the globe, we are not going to see football return before the end of April – and in all likelihood well beyond that too.

Football Index naturally thrives on matches and so had previously put out several bonuses and promotions in order to help keep traders engaged. Now, with confirmation that April is fully out of action in terms of live games, they have announced the return of Media Madness which will pay out dividends on the top 5 daily Media players.

This promotion will begin on 4 April 2020 once the current double dividends promotion ends on 3 April 2020.

A key boost to the return of Media Madness is that dividends have been increased to 5p and 3p for the first and second placed players respectively. This is up from 3p and 2p when we last saw a top 5 pay-out system in the summer of 2019 and makes a daily total of 11p available to traders who are lucky enough to get a full house.

The full running time for the promotion is from 4 April 2020 and throughout the whole month until 30 April 2020. A decision on whether to extend the promotion will be announced on 24 April.

Another small but very enticing addition to this promotion is an extension to the cut-off deadline time in which to buy shares in order for them to be eligible for that day’s dividends. The usual cut-ff point for Media dividends is 3pm but this has now been extended to 8pm BST.

The lack of live football is of course a huge loss to Football Index but it’s good to see they are being proactive with trying to keep the platform engaging. With top 5 media, it at least gives a chance for some of the less obvious names to chip in with some welcome dividends rather than just the same handful of names taking home the spoils more of than not.

Again, we would like to wish everyone to stay healthy during this troubling time and please Remember to follow all government guidelines.
