Tezos is not unfamiliar with the sports industry as the blockchain has already established multiple deals with professional teams. Now, the network has taken the initiative to allegedly strike a deal with the renowned Manchester United. The deal will see Tezos becoming the official training kit sponsor for the most successful English Premier League club.
Several users tagged both Manchester United and Tezos on different social media platforms. The 20-time English champion is about to end its sponsorship deal with Aon, an American-based insurance company.
If the partnership is confirmed, Tezos will add another esteemed sporting entity to its clientele. The network struck a deal with the New York Mets in May 2021, helping it attract massive market traction. At the same time, the blockchain finalized an agreement to provide the first-ever NFT experience for Formula One team Red Bull Racing Honda.
The report also states that Tezos will become the McLaren’s in three different racing categories – Esports, Indycar, and F1. In a similar fashion, the blockchain network recently established a technical partnership with Team Vitality, a renowned French Esports entity. The deal is keenly related to the latest alleged deal where the Esports team showcased the network on their shirt.
The Athletic is yet to reach Tezos and Manchester United for any comment on the deal. Nonetheless, the publication stated that the partnership would most likely allow Manchester United to use Tezos’s resources and capitalize on emerging technologies like Web3 and the Metaverse. Given the stature the entities hold, the alleged partnership can open new opportunities in the blockchain-sports industry.
