XDC Network will appear on the front of D.C. United Home and Away Kits

Major League Soccer (MLS) club D.C. United announced a three-year sponsorship agreement with XDC Network, a blockchain technology developer. For the first time in history of the MLS club, D.C. United fans will have unprecedented access to unique experiences that have never before been available to them. Starting with the 2022 season, D.C. United will display XDC Network on the front of both their home and away kits as well as training tops. Allied Sports was instrumental in bringing D.C. United and XDC Network together.

D.C. United fans will have access to a unique ‘Fan Token’ program that rewards fan loyalty with exclusive events and experiences. Through the partnership, soccer fans may also learn about blockchain technology. In addition, non-fungible tokens (NFTs) may be purchased, sold or traded on the XDC Network. Additional details about the project and how fans may participate will be announced soon.

Billy Sebell, Executive Director of XDC Foundation said:

“It’s one thing to build this technology. It’s another thing, however, to see it being used throughout mainstream markets and by recognizable legacy brands. This partnership is about bringing the value of blockchain to the D.C. United fanbase to elevate their experience, drive deeper engagement, and connect the growing crypto ecosystem to the club.”

As an enterprise-ready Layer 1 blockchain platform, the XDC Network is ideal for many unique use cases. XDC Network is one of the most competitive and energy-efficient blockchains available. It features near-zero ‘gas’ costs, lightning-fast transaction speeds and plans to be virtually carbon-neutral (carbon-negative by 2023). XDC also allows developers and content providers to easily interface with the network, letting them tokenize assets using smart contracts.

D.C. United’s new black-and-red uniform will display the XDC Network logo on the front and is available in the D.C. United Club Shop at Audi Field. Having won 13 domestic and international championships, D.C. United is one of the most elite soccer teams in the United States. Go here to learn more about D.C.

The XDC token is listed on major cryptocurrency exchanges and is available to trade on these exchanges:

WhiteBIT, Bybit, BitKan, BKEX, BEQUANT, ChangeNow, DigiFinex, CoinW, XT.com, BigOne, LBANK, Gate.io, ProBit, Bittrex, BitMart, CoinSpot, FMFW.io, JellySwap, Changelly PRO, HitBTC, InstaSwap, SimpleSwap, KuCoin, Liquid, Bitfinex, Bitrue, WBF, BuyUcoin, Hotbit, STEX, MERCATOX  and Indodax.
