This is the result from a partnership with bitcoin betting platform Sportsbet.io. On top of this the Premier League football club will also accept cryptocurrency payments in its online merchandise shop. Watford F.C. <a rel="noreferrer noopener" aria-label="announced (opens in a new tab)" href="https://www.watfordfc.com/club/bitcoin-confirmed-new-sleeve-partner" target="_blank">announced</a> this on Thursday.</p>
<p>Watford football club emphasizes that the placement of the bitcoin logo is part of a wider campaign to improve awareness around cryptocurrency. The club will help to educate the public on the benefits of using cryptocurrencies. </p>
<blockquote class="wp-block-quote"><p>“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.” </p><cite> Justin Le Brocque, Head of Marketing at Sportsbet.io </cite>

<p>Last month, Sportsbet.io announced a three-year partnership with Watford. This marked the first time a company known for blockchain and cryptocurrency expertise had appeared on the front of a Premier League shirt. </p>
<p>Last week Turkish Super Lig club Yeni Malatyaspor a<a href="https://www.nederob.nl/2019/09/02/btc-turk-first-ever-football-shirt-sponsor/">nnounced a new cryptocurrency shirt sponsor</a> as well. Turkish cryptocurrency exchange BTC Turk is sponsoring the club. As a result the club renamed to BTC Turk Yeni Malatyaspor. The exchange also started promoting its activities in major football stadiums in the country. </p>
<p>Besides all these sponsorships blockchain technology is further infiltrating the world of sports.
