LAS VEGAS – Mar. 10, 2022: With the 2022 season kicking-off this Sunday (March 13th) in New Mexico for the Las Vegas Lights FC, the club and Las Vegas-based Coin Cloud today announced a Presenting Sponsorship including front-of-jersey branding for the Digital Currency Machine (DCM) company.
The partnership also represents the first to be paid entirely in Bitcoin and in addition to Coin Cloud branding across the front of players’ jerseys, the Bitcoin logo will be highlighted on the sleeve. Lights FC Coin Cloud and Bitcoin branded jerseys are made by Meyba, an iconic brand in the sport.
“Soccer is not only a passion for me personally, as I played collegiately at Pomona College, but the world’s most popular sport is at the forefront of consumer interest in crypto and digital currencies, and assets,” said Chris McAlary, founder and CEO of Coin Cloud. “This partnership with Lights FC is not only perfect for our brand and mission of Digital Currency for All, but our pride in being founded and based in Las Vegas.”
“Lights FC and Coin Cloud’s partnership is a perfect match of two like-minded companies based in Las Vegas,” said Brett Lashbrook, owner and CEO of the Las Vegas Lights FC. “Entering our fifth anniversary season, Lights FC is proud to continue bringing the world’s most popular sport to the world’s most entertaining city! Couple that through this unique partnership with a pioneer in the burgeoning digital currency space and we have a winning combination for the season ahead.”
