Leading blockchain sports and entertainment platform, Jetcoin Institute continues its support of Wigan Athletic FC in the form of sleeve sponsorship, as it enters into the quarter finals of the prestigious FA Cup against Southampton on Sunday 18th March 2018.
This association has previously given Wigan an extra boost in the days just before its showdown against Manchester City – a game that is still being looked on with disbelief by football pundits and fans alike. Jetcoin is proud to continue its support of Wigan, a team which has shown tremendous grit, passion and some unbelievable gamesmanship en route its first quarter finals since their FA Cup winning feat in 2013. League One Wigan has managed to stamp its strong credentials after beating three Premier League teams this FA Cup season – Manchester City (top team of EPL), West Ham and Bournemouth – to reach the quarter finals of the FA Cup.
Actively disrupting traditional fan-celebrity relationship in sports and entertainment, Jetcoin views the Jetcoin-Wigan partnership as something that, in the words of Jetcoin CEO Eric Alexandre, “goes beyond mere sponsorship”. With the Jetcoin Institute looking to create positive and lasting impact in the world of sports by providing opportunities to talent while simultaneously activating fan engagement, this continued support of Wigan, as it pits itself against teams ranked much higher up in the English Football League system, is representative of Jetcoin’s vision and goal of supporting tomorrow’s champions against all odds.
Jetcoin Institute is a unique platform that aims to revolutionize the sports and entertainment industry by bringing celebrities and fans closer like never before. Fans can become active participants in their chosen talent’s meteoric rise to the top and stand to gain from the windfall in the process. Through the use of its own crypto token – JET – individuals can participate in a historic occasion where they can choose a promising talent from the pool of “Jetcoin Champions” and “invest” in him or her by buying a portion of their image rights. As the talent matures in his or her career, the value of their image rights increases thereby adding value to the investments of people who backed the talent in the first place.
