On Saturday the 19th I was at a pub and grill with friends for a birthday. While I was there I happened to look up at one of the tv screens and a football match was on. I do not watch football nor do I know much about the leagues. I understand how the game works and that’s about it. While I was watching I noticed something but just to make sure I asked the table if they saw it too and they confirmed it. (there were 5 of us at the table 2 of which know and understand bitcoin and how it works they just don’t own their own crypto I don’t know why) What we saw was the bitcoin logo BTC on the sleeves of Watford FC players. I was excited and glad to see it. I asked a friend at the table what they thought the sponsor was from and he said probably an exchange.  Turns out that the Turkish exchange BtcTurk was the Watford shirt sponsor and BtcTurk have sponsored Yeni Malatyaspor, a Turkish club.

It was happened a while back. Sportsbet is the sponsor and main club partner of Watford FC. That’s a kindness from them towards promoting btc among the world. Football is widely watched through almost half of the people.
For your info, in the first match with bitcoin logo, Mia Khalifa was also there with the Jersey.

.I as a fan of English Premiere League football also was surprised when I saw the team Watford FC using their uniforms with a logo
bitcoin. This is great news in my opinion because English Premiere League is one of the most popular live TV broadcasts in the world.
So being able to introduce bitcoin to the rest of the world, I’m proud that bitcoin has begun to enter the field of sports. Hopefully the
famous sports others can have the bitcoin logo too. This is a small step to popularize bitcoin in the eyes of the world.

This is the same sponsor as the sportsbet.io one? I was under the impression that they were already sponsoring another football, or maybe basketball team a couple of months back? Is this the same team, or something completely different, seems to be a pretty late article if so.

I only think the Sportsbet sponsor makes sense, honestly don’t see financial institutions getting the most out of sponsoring football teams – seems counterproductive.

I wonder what’s been happening with Sportsbet and what had to happen for this sponsorship to be possible.
