Share Trading

Want to help give back to the Melbourne Football Club high performance program? Trade with IG to support your club.


What is Share Trading?

The AFL is a fast-paced, competitive world that drives innovation in athlete management, preparation, strength, conditioning and coaching. By trading with IG, you can help provide the players and staff of the MFC with the best possible resources to maximise their potential.

IG will contribute 50% of commissions made on trades placed through share trading accounts that are opened through the MFC. That means from $4 for each local trade placed, and from $5 for each international trade placed – straight towards the MFC High Performance program to ensure on-field success.
