The English Premier League football team Southampton F.C. will let players get their bonuses paid in Bitcoin
Exceeded all expectations
CEO of the Coingaming Group Maarja Part boomed the club’s comments:
1. Our first period as Southampton FC’s main club partner has previously exceeded all expectations, he stated.
2. We have been enthused by the passion of the club and its fans, and it was an easy decision for us to spread our partnership with the Saints for extra three years.
3. We can’t wait to stay on this journey with the Saints, and we’ll be liable for everything we can to support the team and its public into the future.
4. The secretive break-up with LD Sports had left the club red-faced after thousands of fans had now purchased club shirts and merchandise adorned with the LD logo.
A declaration at the time read: Over the last week, we have endeavoured to save confirmation that LD Sports are still a suitable and viable partner for the club but have been left with no substitute other than to end the partnership currently with immediate effect.
The deal is the largest sponsorship agreement in the club’s past and also includes the selection for the club to be paid sure performance-based bonuses in Bitcoin. It allows the club the opportunity to take advantage of the new, high-growth currency if it touches it will bring important future benefits.
Since fetching Main Club Partner in August 2020, they have walked in at short notice to take over the front-of-shirt sponsorship. They have operated diligently with the club to create a positive impression in the local community. Also, highlight the status of safe betting – an obligation they take seriously.
