English football club Oxford City has entered into a partnership with the cryptocurrency platform CoinCorner, as part of which will start accepting payments in the first cryptocurrency.

Oxford City play in the Southern Conference -the sixth most important tournament in England. After the start of the season on August 6, fans will be able to buy tickets for the club's home matches, food and drinks at the stadium for bitcoin using the Lightning Network.

CoinCorner sponsored the club and released a limited edition Oxford City FC Bolt Card to celebrate. As part of the partnership, the teams will place the bitcoin logo on their jerseys.

“We believe this move will create a trend […]as digital currency becomes the new normal for sports fans and event goers across the UK,” said Danny Scott, CEO of CoinCorner.

In February 2022, blockchain platform Tezos signed an agreement with Manchester United. As part of the agreement, the project logo appeared on the training uniforms of the men's and women's teams.

In the spring, the OKX bitcoin exchange became a partner of Manchester City. In July, the company announced a sponsorship deal with the club for the 2022-2023 season.

Recall that in May, the Chelsea team agreed to cooperate with the platform for trading and lending cryptocurrencies WhaleFin.
