Staples Center Name Change Tops List of Crypto Sports Sponsorship Deals

By Eli Tan

Cryptocurrency companies have taken the sports world by storm over the past year, and if you’re an avid watcher of sports, you’ve certainly noticed this firsthand.

Ranging from in-person stadium billboards to commercials starring some of the most recognizable faces in sports, crypto companies are pouring money into sports marketing campaigns at a historic rate as leading cryptocurrencies climb to new highs.

Two crypto exchanges in particular, FTX and Crypto.com, have plowed hundreds of millions into sports-related deals in a play for new customers as Coinbase and Binance sit largely on the sidelines.

Here are the 10 biggest deals to date:

Staples Center becomes Crypto.com Arena

Crypto.com made headlines Wednesday when it bought the naming rights to the iconic Staples Center, home to the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers of the National Basketball Association and the Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League. The 20-year deal was worth $700 million, sources told CoinDesk and the Los Angeles Times, making it the most lucrative naming rights deal in history.

 

FTX apes into esports

FTX purchased the naming rights to esports giant TSM in June for $210 million, the largest esports sponsorship to date. The multiyear deal changed the organization’s name to TSM FTX.

Crypto.com taps UFC for ‘fight kit’ sponsorship

Crypto.com inked a 10-year, $175 million deal to sponsor Ultimate Fighting Championship in July. The sponsorship put the exchange’s logo on shorts, top bras and walk-out hoodies of fighters during competitions.

FTX buys naming rights to Miami Heat arena

FTX became the first cryptocurrency company to secure the naming rights to a major sporting venue in March when it announced a 19-year partnership with the Miami Heat worth $125 million, renaming the NBA venue to FTX Arena.

Crypto.com strikes Formula 1 deal

Crypto.com inked a five-year, $100 million sponsorship deal with auto racing league Formula 1 in June, giving the exchange advertising space and its own trackside slots at F1 races worldwide.

FTX partners with Major League Baseball

FTX signed a five-year deal with Major League Baseball in July to put patches of the exchange’s logo on the jackets of the league’s umpires. The exchange has also sponsored crypto giveaways paired with the league’s longest home runs, named “FTX Moonblasts,” along with signing current and former players like David Ortiz and Shohei Ohtani to ambassador deals.

 

Crypto.com lands NBA jersey patch deal

Crypto.com signed a deal to be the official jersey patch sponsor of the Philadelphia 76ers in September. While the specifics of the deal were not disclosed, the six-year sponsorship is estimated to be worth eight figures annually.

Crypto.com will be on the Sixers jerseys starting this season.

 

Crypto.com sponsors Paris Saint-Germain

Crypto.com announced a three-year sponsorship deal with famed European soccer club Paris Saint-Germain in September. The deal is worth $34 million and makes Crypto.com the official cryptocurrency partner of the club. The exchange even went on to list PSG, the club’s Socios-powered fan token.

FTX secures naming rights to UC Berkeley football stadium

FTX’s first college sports deal came in August when it partnered with the athletic department of the University of California, Berkeley. The 10-year, $17.5 million deal renamed the school’s football stadium to “FTX Field.”

Tezos partners with New York Mets

The Tezos Foundation is the only base layer to make the list and spent an undisclosed amount on a large piece of real estate on the New York Mets’ scoreboard at Citi Field. The early proof-of-stake pioneer has also inked deals with Red Bull Racing and McLaren Racing.

If you’re new to the world of cryptocurrency investment, and figuring out how to buy cryptocurrencies then cryptocurrency exchanges like www.bit-xchange.org can help you to easily buy and sell crypto.
