Leyton Orient Plays For Footium Short Sponsorship
Leyton Orient have signed Footium as its men’s official back of shorts sponsor on all three kits for the 2022/2023 season.
The partnership is hoped to help with the onboarding more football fans into the web3 space of crypto and NFTs, bringing the Orient and Footium communities together through a shared love of the beautiful game.
The company has a number of plans to work alongside the club and their charity partners throughout the season and beyond. The Footium logo will feature on the O’s kit in the next FIFA game, which will be released near the end of 2022.
Josh Stephens, Head of Commercial at Leyton Orient, commented: “We are really excited to welcome Footium on board – it’s a fantastically engaging game which allows you to run your own football team and much more. Footium have some fantastic backers and players, and we are looking forward to a fun-filled partnership.”
George Benton, COO at Footium, said: “The entire Footium team are excited to be working with Leyton Orient on this partnership. The O’s rich history as one of the oldest clubs in England, alongside the forward-thinking and innovative nature of the staff, made the opportunity a perfect fit – it’s a good old institution!”
The Footium team would also like to give their thanks to Michael Rocha-Keys, CEO of EMW Global, and Gary Linke, Owner of The Missing Linke, for their support in forming the partnership.
