- Crypto.com would rename the STAPLES Center.
- Crypto.com aims to increase crypto access internationally.
Crypto.com, the world’s fastest-growing cryptocurrency platform, announced today that it is the official cryptocurrency and NFT partner of the Angel City Football Club. This is the first time a powerful cryptocurrency platform has directly sponsored a professional women’s sports team.
This is to promote financial education, independence, and empowerment. In a similar vein to Crypto.com’s objective to level the playing field financially, ACFC’s mission is to develop a new sort of football team for women.
Crypto.com continues to uncover innovative ways to invest in Los Angeles, the World’s Creative Capital. Joining ACFC, one of the world’s most innovative professional sports clubs, is a natural match as Crypto.com aims to increase crypto access internationally.
ACFC is changing the face of women’s sports by partnering with celebrities like Alexis Ohanian, Eva Longoria, Jessica Chastain, Uzo Aduba, Julie Foudy, Mia Hamm, and others. The cooperation will emphasize community participation, financial equality, and social impact.
Kris Marszalek, co-founder, and CEO of Crypto.com, said:
“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,” H further added, “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.”
It was reported last month that Crypto.com would rename the STAPLES Center, owned and managed by AEG, one of the world’s most prominent sports and entertainment venues. The Crypto.com Arena will be the new name effective December 25. Crypto.com is now an official cryptocurrency platform partner of the LA Lakers and LA Kings due to this agreement.
Crypto.com’s worldwide sports collaborations include UFC, F1, Paris Saint-Germain, the NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers, the NHL’s Montreal Canadiens, and many more.
