In its global campaign to make a difference, Crypto.com becomes the first cryptocurrency platform to officially partner with a professional women’s sports team. Revealing the news, Crypto.com says it is now a founding partner of Angel City Football Club (ACFC) and the team’s official cryptocurrency and NFT partner.
By virtue of this recent alliance, the world’s fastest-growing cryptocurrency platform has deepened its relationship with Los Angeles and LA sports fans. Moreover, Crypto.com will support financial education and independence, and financial empowerment for players and fans.
Speaking on why they embarked on this valuable mission, the leading exchange says ACFC is mission-driven to create a different kind of football club that levels the playing field in women’s sports. Thus, mirroring Crypto.com’s mission to level the playing field financially through cryptocurrencies. Kris Marszalek, co-founder, and CEO of Crypto.com affirms,
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. 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.
This latest development comes following the recently-announced naming rights agreement for the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles. Crypto.com will increase access and awareness of cryptocurrencies, blockchain, and Web3 technologies among LA soccer fans, ACFC players, and across the broader ACFC organization.
ACFC is leading the way in women’s sports, creating innovative partnership models and tapping into a diverse and dynamic ownership group that includes Alexis Ohanian, Natalie Portman, Eva Longoria, Jessica Chastain, Uzo Aduba, Julie Foudy, Mia Hamm, and more. The partnership will include a focus on community engagement, financial equity, and social impact initiatives. Alexis Ohanian, Seven Seven Six Founder, and ACFC Leading Founding Investor submits,
Since day one Angel City has committed to being a leader in women’s football by promoting innovation that propels the game forward. This thinking has driven our decision-making – from our community outreach efforts to our partnerships, down to the personnel we’ve hired – we continue to deliver on that promise daily. As an early adopter of crypto myself, today I’m proud that Angel City continues to lead the way as the first women’s professional sports team to partner directly with a major crypto platform. This partnership is a turning point for women’s sports and signifies the growing recognition of the power and influence they wield.
Crypto.com continues working to expand access to cryptocurrency across diverse communities globally and not just the creative capital of the world, Los Angeles. Combining efforts with ACFC, one of the most forward-thinking professional sports teams in the world is a big feat for Crypto.com.
ACFC Co-Founder and President Julie Uhrman,
Key to Angel City’s goal to drive equity for women is to empower them with the tools and resources to be financially independent. Given the speed with which Web3 and cryptocurrency is changing our world, we want to ensure that women are being brought along on the journey as investors and creators. Partnering with Crypto.com was a natural fit given their leadership in the space and mission to level the playing field with crypto. We are excited to work with them 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.
