Tezos Blockchain Bags Partnership With Manchester United in $27 Million Deal

Manchester United’s new sponsors are none other than crypto-currency Tezos. Tezos, which is a decentralised blockchain network, has reportedly bagged a partnership with the legendary English football club for a total of $27 million (roughly Rs. 200 crores).

While the official confirmation of this development remains awaited, the deal will be a multi-year sponsorship for their training kit. The development comes after Manchester United’s sponsorship deal with insurance company Aon ended last season. With this deal, the logo of Tezos is likely to appear on the jersey of football stars including that of Cristiano Ronaldo.

The promotional material of this partnership has already been recorded at the Carrington training centre where the Manchester United team practices, news portal The Athletic reported.

The Tezos blockchain claims to be an energy-efficient platform that has a native cryptocurrency called Tez. 

This reported deal with Manchester United is expected to add more credibility and recognition to the blockchain network. 

This is not the first time, however, that Tezos has been selected to back a world-renowned brand.

British racing team McLaren Racing has also chosen Tezos as its official technical partner across Formula 1, INDYCAR, and esports teams.
