NFL Team Houston Texans Now Accept Bitcoin Payments for Game Suites
The professional football team, the Houston Texans, has become the latest National Football League (NFL) team to accept Bitcoin as payment for its single-game suites. The club said it has already made its first cryptocurrency sale after selling a suite to digital marketing agency EWR Digital.
Single Game Suites are exclusive football viewing spaces in stadiums that accommodate a limited number of fans who want to access exclusive perks like food and drink and a favorite gaming experience.
BitWallet, partner of Houston Texans
The development is part of a partnership agreement with US-based cryptocurrency platform BitWallet. According to the announcement, the latter has become the Houston Texans’ Official Digital Currency Wallet.
BitWallet will facilitate cryptocurrency payments for the game suites and convert the proceeds into US dollars for the club. In addition to BTC, Texan fans may be able to pay with other cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) as these assets are supported on the BitWallet platform.
Company CEO John T. Perrone commented on the development, noting that “digital currency has become a primary means of payment and, thanks to the collaboration with BitWallet, Texans are leading the way in the NFL.”
Greg Grissom, president of the Houston Texans, said:
“We are proud to partner with BitWallet to offer an exciting option for our fans who are looking to enjoy the Texan game day in one of our suites.”
NFL teams adopt cryptocurrencies
Although the Houston Texans claim to be the first NFL team to accept cryptocurrency payments, the Nashville rival Tennessee Titans announced in April that it has partnered with digital asset fund UTXO Management to enable bitcoin payments, allowing fans of subscriptions, game suites and sponsorships with BTC.
Meanwhile, in addition to Texans and Titans, other NFL teams have gained visibility in the cryptocurrency industry through exclusive partnerships and sponsorship deals.
In April, the Dallas Cowboys signed a sponsorship deal with cryptocurrency exchange and wallet provider BlockchainCom, making the exchange the exclusive digital asset partner and sponsor of the NFL team.
