Crypto.com, which serves more than 10 million customers with the world’s fastest growing crypto and financial services platform, has just announced it has become the official cryptocurrency and NFT partner of Angel City Football Club (ACFC).
This is a great milestone for Crypto.com if we take into account the fact that the partnership is the first direct sponsorship of a professional women’s sports team by a major crypto platform.
Crypto.com, which has recently announced the naming rights agreement for the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, has joined forces with ACFC in order to increase access and awareness of cryptos, blockchain and Web3 technologies among LA soccer fans, ACFC players and across the broader ACFC organization.
Kris Marszalek, co-founder and CEO of Crypto.com, said on the partnership:
“We are a community dedicated to building the future of the internet: Web3. Powered by cryptocurrency, Web3 will be more fair and equitable, owned by the builders, creators, and users. We’re thrilled to be joining ACFC as a founding partner, deepening our relationship with the City of Los Angeles while supporting a team that shares our values and is equally committed to helping people achieve financial independence and self-determination.”
Alexis Ohanian, Seven Seven Six Founder and ACFC Leading Founding Investor, commented:
“Since day one Angel City has committed to being a leader in women’s football by promoting innovation that propels the game forward,” said . “This thinking has driven our decision-making – from our community outreach efforts to our partnerships, down to the personnel we’ve hired – we continue to deliver on that promise daily. As an early adopter of crypto myself, today I’m proud that Angel City continues to lead the way as the first women’s professional sports team to partner directly with a major crypto platform. This partnership is a turning point for women’s sports and signifies the growing recognition of the power and influence they wield.”
