National Football League (NFL) team Houston Texans has become the first organization in the league to sell single-game suites in exchange for crypto. BitWallet became the team’s official partner as a digital currency wallet to help expand their entertainment sales.
After penning a deal with Texas-based crypto wallet providers BitWallet, the Houston Texans join a long list of crypto partnerships and payment deals in the NFL.
According to an announcement from the Texans, local digital marketing agency EWR Digital made the first single-game suite purchasing using crypto shortly after the offer launched, making it the first time a game suite has been sold in exchange for digital assets in the history of the sport.
The Texans’ website doesn’t list a price for single-game or full-season suites, instead asking people to first submit an inquiry to secure one. From the Seat estimates a single game suite for the team costs anywhere from $14,000 to $25,000. However, a BitWallet representative told Cointelegraph that the figure can go as high as $40,000.
"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," Houston Texans president, Greg Grissom said. "BitWallet is a perfect collaborator as we continue our efforts to move our organization forward in new and innovative ways."
