LONDON, July 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
The Sports Trading Club has done it again, proving they are the masters in assessing and trading sporting markets by reaping over $150 million in the World Cup.
A month ago, on the eve of the World Cup the Sports Trading Club issued a press release published worldwide and announced that Germany would win the World Cup and had placed a $20 million wager at odds of 8.0.
They also declared that Brazil would not win and laid them to the tune of $26 million. They also laid Spain for $15 million and Argentina for $11 million.
Four predictions and four wins at the highest level of the sport in the toughest competition has sent shock waves through the betting world as to just how good these analysts and traders are in this private sports trading club.
On June 6, 2014, in a press release issued via PRNewswire (http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/germany-will-win-world-cup-according-to-sports-trading-club-with-20-million-wager-262080791.html) STC stated that whilst most bookies fancied Brazil or perhaps Argentina to win the 2014 World Cup, they had predicted the 8-1 chance Germany to win and backed their opinion with a $20 million bet.
STC analyst Brian Churchill, aid at the time: "It was determined by our analysts that Germany would win the country's fourth FIFA World Cup, becoming the first European nation to win the FIFA World Cup on South American soil."
On April 28, in another press release issued via PRNewswire (http://www.prnewswire.co.uk/news-releases/sports-trading-club-wages-26-million-that-brazil-will-not-win-the-world-cup-256965391.html) STC UK Communications Manager Patrick McMahon said: "We have always been very confident that Brazil were a huge risk and a great trade to make for them not to win the World Cup, we traded them to lose $26 million at 4.0."
Germany has now won four World Cups, putting the European powerhouse just one behind Brazil's record tally of five.
STC's Mr McMahon said he echoed the comments of Germany Captain Phillip Lahm:
"Phillip Lahm, speaking about his team's win, said: 'It's unbelievable what we have achieved. Whether we have the best individual player doesn't matter at all, you just need to have the best team.'"
"Just like Germany we at the Sports Trading Club feel the same way: our incredible success is a team effort."
Mr McMahon said the fundamental difference was that most on-line sports betting companies that make money do so by taking money from their clients. The Sports Trading Club takes a different approach and makes money for their clients.
The Sports Trading Club, (http://www.sportstradingclub.com) was predicted in December 2012 to be the rising star of 2013, and lived up to that confidence by becoming the top performer in any industry, with an eighteen-fold rise in return, meaning a $50,000 investment on the 1st January 2013 made a profit of over $900,000 one year later. A rise of over 1,900 per cent.
STC says that their success can also be attributed to the enjoyment and enthusiasm of its members and the experience of being a member of an exclusive club.
"They don't have to make the decision on what to trade, we do that, but they are fully informed in advance of every trade we make, so they get the same level of excitement and enjoyment by watching the sporting event in real time," Mr McMahon said.
"The difference is that they win and that is far more enjoyable than losing," he said.
The Sports Trading Club, which operates as a private investors group in England, allowed the general public to become members in Australia in 2013 and is now expanding throughout Asia.
