Sportsbet.io and Watford FC will mark the end of the 2019/2020 Premier League season with a bang by holding the first-ever Crypto Cup.
UPDATE: The Crypto Cup at Watford FC has been postponed until a future date due to the coronavirus pandemic. Meanwhile, Sportsbet.io becomes the main club sponsor of Southampton FC for the 2020-21 season of Premier League.
It would be a day of debate, education, and a football tournament.
Crypto enthusiasts and football fans had better free up their schedule on May 16 to be part of the inaugural Crypto Cup to be held at Vicarage Road.
Leading Bitcoin sports betting platform Sportsbet.io is further pushing its promotion of Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies by teaming up with Watford FC for the upcoming Crypto Cup.
Currently a partner of The Hornets, Sportsbet.io is responsible for placing the Bitcoin logo on the Watford FC jerseys, bringing BTC to the professional football team’s official online store, as well as setting up the Bitcoin Box at the stadium.
The upcoming Crypto Cup will only take Bitcoin and cryptocurrency awareness to the next level as Sportsbet.io CEO Tim Heath emphasized the strong role football sponsorship plays in the future of crypto adoption:
“After witnessing what an impact football sponsorship has had on raising awareness for cryptocurrency, we’re really looking forward to taking it even further with Watford FC. Being part of the conversation on the day with both fans and experts, exploring what the future of crypto adoption looks like and enjoying the Vicarage Road experience is a brilliant opportunity for all involved.”
The main highlight of the Cup is the round-robin football tournament, wherein teams will take on the field for charity. As a token to every one who is part of the competing teams, a Watford legend will personally talk to them before the match.
In full support of the strong partnership of Watford FC and Sportsbet.io, Watford FC Commercial Director Paul O’Brien said:
“This is the first event of its kind to be organized at Watford FC, throughout this season we have been delighted to welcome the crypto community to experience match days at Vicarage Road, through our partnership with Sportsbet.io and the Bitcoin jersey sponsorship. Now in May, we will support this partnership with a special day which will allow the crypto community to play at the Vic, whilst immersing themselves in discussions, education and fun.”
As evidenced by the success of this partnership through the Premier League, football remains a popular sport across the globe and serves as an ideal avenue to spread crypto awareness.
