Dogecoin promotion at English Premier League games
The players of Watford Football Club, an English professional football team based in Watford, Hertfordshire, wear the Dogecoin logo on their sleeves. The team plays in the Premier League, also known as the English Premier League or EPL, the first division of English football.
The Athletic publication reported on Saturday that “Watford’s jersey sleeve sponsor will be a Dogecoin in cryptocurrency for the 2021-22 season”. The publication details:
The deal – a collaboration with main shirt sponsor Stake.com – will be valued at around £ 700,000 [$970,000] among the newcomers to the Premier League and could break their previous £ 1 million sleeve partnership with Bitcoin if it gains traction globally.
During Saturday’s Premier League game, the Watford Football Club players wore shirts with the logo for the meme cryptocurrency Dogecoin on their left sleeves.
Watford Football Club announced a multi-year partnership with Stake.com, a global crypto casino and sports betting platform, in July. The company stated: “Starting in 2021/22, the club’s record deal will make Stake the club’s main kit sponsor when he returns to the Premier League.”
In addition, the announcement states: “To commemorate the beginning of the partnership, Stake will carry out initiatives on the topic of crypto, including a 10 million Dogecoin competition on its international platform.”
Prior to partnering with Stake, Watford Football Club signed a deal with Sportsbet.io in 2019. The contract included the players wearing the Sportsbet.io branded on the front of Watford’s shirts and the image depicting Bitcoin on their sleeves for the 2019-20 Premier League.
