Iqbal V. Gandham, UK Managing Director at eToro said: “We are excited to be partnering with so many Premier League clubs and make history by being the first company ever to pay for a Premier League partnership in Bitcoin. Today’s announcement is the first small step on a long road to football fully embracing blockchain technology. Education will be key so that industries can understand the potential and so getting global exposure through these Premier League clubs represents a great opportunity to raise awareness.”
