The Bitcoin “B” logo will be featured on the Watford FC player’s uniforms as a result of the club’s partnership with Bitcoin betting platform Sportsbet.io. The team will also accept Bitcoin for merchandise purchases.
The adding logo to the uniform is part of an educational campaign aiming to “improve awareness around Bitcoin and educate the public on the benefits of using cryptocurrencies.”
“The crypto community have been hugely supportive of us since we began, so putting the Bitcoin logo on the sleeve felt like a fun way to give something back while also showing them our support,” Justin Le Brocque, the head of sportsbet.io marketing, said.
To celebrate the deal, Sportsbet.io is giving away 2 mbtc Free Bet to all Sportsbet.io players if Watford scores against Arsenal this coming Sunday and will also drop 1 BTC into a random account on gameday.
