Houston Texans Become The First NFL Franchise To Accept Bitcoin For Suites
The Houston Texans have now become the latest National Football League team to accept Bitcoin BTC/USD as payment for single-game suites.
U.S.-based cryptocurrency platform BitWallet has partnered with the Texans to become the team’s official Digital Currency Wallet. In addition, BitWallet will facilitate the team with intermediary services by exchanging crypto for cash.
According to the team, it has already made its first crypto sale after selling a suite to digital marketing agency EWR Digital.
A single game suite refers to an exclusive football viewing space in the stadium. It accommodates a small group of fans with buffets, beverages, TVs, and a prime location to view the game.
We are proud to partner with BitWallet to offer an exciting option for our fans who are looking to enjoy Texans gameday in one of our suites. BitWallet is a perfect collaborator as we continue our efforts to move our organization forward in new and innovative ways.
Digital currency has become a primary means of payment and by partnering with BitWallet, the Texans are leading the way in the NFL. I am honored that BitWallet is the first to offer Texans fans this service.
— BitWallet CEO John T. Perrone
The Texans have not mentioned anything about the price range for the single suit, but according to the Seat, a single game suite for the team may cost anywhere from $14,000 to $25,000.
Earlier in April, the Nashville-based Tennessee Titans partnered with digital asset fund UTXO Management to enable Bitcoin payments, allowing fans to purchase season tickets, game suites, and sponsorships.
During the same month, the Dallas Cowboys signed a crypto sponsorship deal with Blockchain.com to be its official digital asset partner.
