Pepperstone becomes Official Regional Partner for the ongoing AFC Asian Cup in Qatar
“We are thrilled to join forces with the AFC Asian Cup 2024, an event that resonates with millions across the region. At Pepperstone, we choose to partner with like-minded organizations focused on a shared drive and commitment for success. Like traders, our sports partners are able to find calm in the chaos and seize the opportunities.”
Pepperstone, a globally recognized Forex (FX) and Contracts for Difference (CFD) broker, has announced its partnership with the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) as an Official Regional Partner for the AFC Asian Cup Qatar 2023. The event began on January 12, with the final set for February 10, 2024.
Yes, we double-checked the year. Due to the high summer temperatures and Qatar’s participation in the 2023 CONCACAF Gold Cup, the tournament was postponed to 12 January – 10 February 2024, while retaining the original name for both existing sponsorship and logistical purposes. Hence the name “AFC Asian Cup Qatar 2023“.

Mr. Tamas Szabo, CEO of Pepperstone, stated, “We are thrilled to join forces with the AFC Asian Cup 2024, an event that resonates with millions across the region. At Pepperstone, we choose to partner with like-minded organizations focused on a shared drive and commitment for success. Like traders, our sports partners are able to find calm in the chaos and seize the opportunities.”
AFC General Secretary Datuk Seri Windsor John said: “The AFC is pleased to welcome Pepperstone as a regional partner of the AFC Asian Cup Qatar 2023™. This partnership underscores the ever-growing prestige of the Continent’s most prestigious men’s tournament, and we thank Pepperstone for their belief in Asian football.”
