Sports Sponsorship – the Prefered Way of Brand Marketing
Mercuryo was established in 2018 as a cross-border payments network using cryptocurrencies for business. According to the company, its user base grew to over 600,000 users. The sports sponsorship came when the company is expanding its international presence and launched its services in the United States earlier this month.
In the last few years, demand for sports sponsorships ballooned as many brokerages inked major deals with sports clubs. Now with the Swansea deal, Mercuryo has jumped into the same wagon.
“We are delighted to have Mercuryo as Swansea City’s first official cryptocurrency partner in the 2020-21 season. In a move that connects the fans of two passionate scenes, we are thrilled to work together with our new sponsor in the upcoming months,” Swansea City’s Head of Commercial, Rebecca Edwards-Symmons said.
