Floki inu (FLOKI), the cryptocurrency inspired by #DogeFather Elon Musk’s Shiba Inu dog, is the new back-shirt sponsor of SSC Napoli, an Italian football club that plays in Serie A (the top tier of Italian football) and that won the UEFA Cup in 1989.
SSC Napoli said the deal “represents a further step forward for the global promotion of Floki”. The partnership began on 23 November, with the placing of the crypto’s logo on the back of the football team’s sports shirts.
The FLOKI logo will also be displayed at SSC Napoli’s home stadium in LED lights.
FLOKI and its visions for schools
SSC Napoli also mentioned FLOKI’s commitment to charity. FLOKI has a vision to “build a school in every continent and eventually in every underdeveloped nation of the world”.
To do this, the crypto has partnered with Pencils of Promise, a non-profit organisation that builds schools and increases educational opportunities in the developing world.
So far, the charity has built 575 classroom blocks that are currently serving over 115,000 students in various nations.
FLOKI and SSC Napoli share the same values
Serena Salvione, chief international development officer for SSC Napoli said: “In the first weeks of close collaboration, which led to this partnership announcement today [Tuesday], we discovered that our Club and Floki share the same values and aspirations for growth. We have always demonstrated our creativity in many sectors, and we believe that this new agreement reinforces our commitment to always create innovative partnerships and keep up with new trends and services/products.”
Floki inu becomes sponsor of a LaLiga team
Recently, FLOKI announced it has signed a deal to become the sleeve sponsor of Cadiz CF, a football team that plays in LaLiga, the top professional division of the Spanish football league system.
Similarly to SSC Napoli, Cadiz at the time said: “The partnership is part of a global promotion to leverage Floki worldwide.”
The deal will also include the FLOKI brand being displayed in LED lights at all home matches at the club’s Nuevo Mirandilla stadium, as well as other fan-focused promotional activities.
FLOKI has also recently announced partnerships with two Indian Super League teams playing in the top tier of football in India, FC Goa and the Kerala Blasters.
