Crypto.com Becomes 1st Crypto, NFT Partner with Women's Professional Sports Team Angels FC
Crypto.com, the world’s fastest-growing cryptocurrency exchange headquartered in Hong Kong, announced on Tuesday that it has partnered with Los Angeles' Angel City Football Club (ACFC) for exclusive rights to issue official cryptocurrencies and NFTs.
This cooperation aims to expand the access and awareness of cryptocurrency, blockchain, and Web3 technologies to the entire Los Angeles football fans, ACFC players, and also globally; thereby encouraging women to promote "education, independence, and financial empowerment."
Angel City Football Club is a planned National Women's Soccer League expansion team that is expected to debut in 2022.
The exchange has been committed to expanding the influence of the cryptocurrency industry in various communities and the team stated that it will focus on community participation, financial equity, and social impact initiatives.
Crypto co-founder and CEO Kris Marszalek said that Crypto.com has always been keen to create a community for the future of the Internet: Web3 — a platform that can provide builders, creators, and users with equal opportunities.
Julie Uhrman, co-founder and president of ACFC, said that：
"Given the speed with which Web 3.0 and cryptocurrency is changing our world, we want to ensure that women are being brought along on the journey as investors and creators. We are excited to work with Crypto.com to educate our community and players on crypto and allow our players to use the power of NFTs to connect with and create a deeper relationship with their fans."
At the same time, Crypto.com stated that it will continue to find unique and influential ways to invest in Los Angeles, the world's creative capital.
Just last month, Crypto.com signed a 20-year cooperation deal worth $700 million with Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG), which owns the Staples Center and the L.A. Live.
The Staples Center will be renamed to Crypto.com Arena, and the official change in the arena's name will take place on December 25, when the Lakers will be hosting the Brooklyn Nets
