Slough Town F.C. sponsored by new crypto Koda
Koda Cryptocurrency’s logo will be displayed on the team’s shirts along with a QR code on the arm
Slough Town Football Club (F.C.) has announced that Koda, a new UK cryptocurrency, is to be the team’s new sponsorship partner after signing a two-year deal.
The deal means that the Koda logo will be displayed on the front of the club’s men’s and women’s first team shirts, as well as the women’s second team shirt, for seasons 2021/22 and 2022/23. A unique QR code will be displayed on the arms of the shirts.
The National League South team tried out the shirt for the first time during yesterday’s (10 August) game against Arsenal U-18s. The match finished 2-0 to Slough Town, in front of 1,348 at Arbour Park in Slough.
‘Trust, Education and Ease of Use’
Developed by Summit BC, Koda is said to be aligned with three key principles – Trust, Education and Ease of Use (T.E.E). The new crypto will be traded on SummitSwap, a platform that aims to “solve many of the issues that have been identified on other cryptocurrency swap sites”.
Summit BC offers online learning sessions on how to safely buy crypto, while SummitSwap aims to protect investors against extortion and fraud.
‘Young and exciting company’
Craig Edwards, Slough Town F.C. vice chair, said: “We are very excited to have Koda as our home shirt sponsor, they are a young and exciting company and we look forward to a long and fruitful relationship.”
James Gale, CEO of Summit BC and Koda Cryptocurrency, said: “I am extremely excited about this new partnership, not only because Slough Town are a local football team who I have followed for many years but also because it represents a huge milestone in the Koda journey, which is still only three months old.
“Our mission is to make cryptocurrency accessible to everyone, not just the few. Our T.E.E (Trust, Education, Ease of Use) model is testament to that and is the foundation we have built ourselves on. I truly believe that there is a lot of undiscovered potential in the market we work in – this is only the beginning,” he added.
