Are you a big fan of English Football? Well now, one of the biggest teams in the English Premier League has got a new crypto trading sponsor.
Newcastle United FC has published a press release which shows StormGain to be the official sleeve partner of the club. This will show off the cryptocurrency trading platform's brand name on the team's shirts for the upcoming 2019/2020 season.
As apart of the partnership’s announcement, Newcastle fans will be able to take part in the crypto trading platforms promotions, including attending the Premier League team’s matches and training as well as getting signed shirts and having a kick about with some of the players.
Newcastle United Head of Commercial Dale Aitchison stated:
“We are always looking to support the club’s development by pursuing new commercial opportunities and this represents another important partnership for the club. StormGain will offer a range of incredible opportunities and money-can't-buy experiences for fans, so we are really excited to be working together."
Crypto firms are highly targeting football teams as sponsors and partners.
Earlier reports from June found that the Portuguese football team S.L Benfica had begun accepting Bitcoin and Ether payments for match tickets and merchandise for the club. The end goal for the club was to get ahead of the increased crypto adoption among football clubs by taking digital currency payments via the payments processing firm UTRUST.
A month earlier in May and the popular CoinMarketCap began sponsoring the Israel-based Beitar Jerusalem Football Club as an official partner. One of the countries most famous footballers, Yossi Benayoun is a well-known investor in Bitcoin and a former Beitar player.
As reported by CCN:
“One of the facilitators of the rising crypto football wave is Premium Division team Gibraltar United that launched cryptocurrency payments for its players in an attempt to provide more transparency and reduce the corruption in the sports industry.”
Accepting cryptocurrency as a team can help foreign players in their banking at least that’s according to the Gibraltar United co-owner Pablo Dana.
