The landmark decision taken by La Liga star RCD Espanyol could have a domino effect on footballing sides that sense an important opportunity to maximize revenue.

Crypto Scores Again

RCD Espanyol fans can now purchase tickets, merchandise, and refreshments with their BTC, ETH, and SNACK. The La Liga side from Barcelona became the first major Spanish team to accept crypto as payment, which could have revolutionary effects on soccer. 

The news was made official via a press release from the footballing side and Crypto Snack on May 9. The move is a high-profile decision in one of the top leagues in world soccer and opens up utility for the aforementioned tokens as fans pour in to purchase tickets every week. RCD Espanyol’s CEO Mao Ye Wu commented on the development, citing the impact the adoption could have on the future of the club:

“The sponsorship agreement offers huge advantages both on and off the pitch and for both Pericos and all soccer fans who visit our fantastic facilities. With this step, we become pioneers in a field that is not the future, but already the present.”


The move also represents a coup for the new partner Crypto Snack who enjoys significant exposure on the club side’s shirt. Crypto Snack’s CEO Stuart Morrison was clear about the significance of the move and, indeed, the partnership between his organization and the well-established football team:

“It is an absolute honour for the Crypto Snack team and community to partner with one of the biggest and most well-known clubs in Europe. The partnership opens the club up to a whole new marketplace and allows Espanyol fans a fun, efficient way to support their team through the use of SNACK and other cryptocurrencies. For Crypto Snack, the chance to partner with a club that views cryptocurrencies as the future was very special.” 

Morrison emphasized that RCD Espanyol’s recent move is bullish for the entire industry and may well spell a new direction for sports teams across the world.

“RCDE understands the value of not just SNACK but the whole crypto community. It is very exciting for current and future SNACK holders to be able to use their tokens to buy their new Espanyol kit, a season ticket, or match day experience. With the backing of our holders, the broader crypto community, and Espanyol’s fans, the sky is the limit for RCD Espanyol and the SNACK token.”
