Cryptocurrency exchange OKX has extended its partnership with current Premier League champions Manchester City FC, with a new deal making the company the English club’s official training kit partner.
OKX becomes Man City’s training kit partner
According to a Press release, OKX will be the new training kit partner for Manchester City’s men’s and women’s teams. Under the terms of the deal, the swap logo will feature on training kits throughout the 2022-23 season.
As part of the announcement, there would be artwork featuring recent Man City signing Erling Haaland, full-back João Cancelo, centre-back John Stones and winger Jack Grealish in four locations different in Manchester. The murals will be created by street artist Akse P19 and Global Street Art Agency.
Commenting on the collaboration, Haider Rafique, Global Chief Marketing Officer for OKX, said:
“Being the Official Training Kit Partner of Man City helps us extend that mindset from the training ground to our trading app community. […] Our partnership with Man City has provided a great platform through which we have the opportunity to educate those curious about crypto and provide those who are already involved with the training they need to participate responsibly.
Additionally, OKX is Man City’s presenting partner for the English club’s inaugural World Trophy Tour. The Premier League trophy will be transported to fans’ doorsteps in Spain, France, the United Arab Emirates, Mexico, Korea, South Africa and Norway.
The latest development comes four months after OKX became Manchester City’s official crypto exchange partner. OKX has also signed a multi-year partnership agreement with McLaren Racing to make them its main official partner.
