Livingston formed a new partnership with TheFutbolCoin (TFC) that will see the club accept TFC (TheFutbolCoin) for tickets and merchandise as well as TheFutbolCoin logo appearing on the rear of Livingston FC 2021/2022 match and replica shirts.
TFA (TheFutbolApp), is a gamified social ecosystem themed around the sport of football with the new TFC payment system due to go live in the coming weeks within the TFA app or TFC wallet for Livingston FC fans.
TFC is a digital token that is used within the TFC wallet and TFA ecosystem to enable revenue sharing and payments to businesses listed within TFA that target a fast growing international userbase by accepting TFC. TFC makes it easy for mainstream users to pay with blockchain based tokens and also allows Clubs and businesses to increase their sales to this young and fast growing community of crypto enthusiasts and football fans.
The club has accepted payment with TFC for a sponsorship package which puts the TFC logo below the player number on the rear of all home and away player and replica shirts.
TFC trades on both stellarport.io and on Bittrex Global.
More detail to follow once the payment system is in place and explain how fans can make use of this new partnership.
First Team Manager David Martindale says: “I’m delighted that the club has been able to forge this partnership with TFA & TFC and I’m sure it’s going to be hugely beneficial for both ourselves and the guys behind TheFutbolCoin.
“Thanks to George Kafkarkou and Steve Van Zutphen for their help with getting this in place and their support of the club.”
Business Development Manager Dave Black says: “Firstly, a big thank you to George and Steve for coming on board with the club and putting a substantial sponsorship package on the table to become our rear of shirt sponsor for next season.
“As someone with no prior knowledge as to how the world of crypto currency operated, the guys at TheFutbolCoin were able to quickly and easily explain the methods and processes and I’m really excited to see how we can grow this relationship and aim to lead the way with TheFutbolCoin.
“It will be incredibly easy for our fans to buy tickets and merchandise with TFC, there’s almost no transaction cost compared to credit cards and transaction speed with TFC is only 3 seconds. We also look forward to holding some TFC on our balance sheet.”
George Kafkarkou, Chairman of TheFutbolApp adds: “We are very excited with the Livingston FC x TFA partnership. We have made it easy for football fans to participate in the blockchain and benefit from it along with the Clubs. Fans can earn TFC tokens in the app or buy them on exchanges like Bittrex Global and spend them with ease within the TFA app’s integrated pay system and wallet.
“There are billions of football fans out there, and now they can experience the power of the blockchain revolution themselves with no technical knowledge and spend the token without having to understand crypto exchanges and the complexity surrounding that.”
