The partnership will see OKX exchange gain an in-stadium presence which may come in the form of branding and advertisement.

Manchester City Is to OKX as Man United Is to Tezos

Just as Manchester City signed this multi-year deal with OKX exchange, its major competitor, Manchester United tapped Tezos, one of the most innovative blockchain protocols as its major tech and training kit partner.

This alignment signals the continued interest that both blockchain and major sports entities share, spurring a host of partnerships in a mutually beneficial manner. Both Manchester Clubs have a deep history when it comes to being open-minded to blockchain innovations as they both realize that the underlying tech behind blockchain is revolutionary and is capable of re-engineering the experiences fans can gain in the world of sports.

With Manchester City planning to build a perfect replica of the Etihad stadium in the metaverse with the help of Sony, it is evident that these football clubs are motivated to take the front charge in the integration of emerging blockchain innovations irrespective of their current popularity or level of adoption.
