The leading global cryptocurrency exchange platform Bitget has announced its partnership with Turkish football giant Galatasaray, also the country’s leading and long-standing football team. The contract period of this deal is for the rest of the 2021-22 season. Bitget will feature as the club’s official crypto partner on media assets and multiple platforms for its basketball and football teams in this sponsorship deal. To officially announce the partnership, a press conference will be conducted soon at the Ali Sami Yen Stadium.
Many crypto asset management and exchange platforms are currently turning sports sponsorship deals, and this phenomenon is because of the rise in the digital assets economy. The sponsorship deals are the means to maximize their presence in front of the mainstream audience. This is an interactive and beneficial relationship for both parties where the crypto platforms get the opportunity to raise their brand awareness, and sports and crypto enthusiasts learn more about the rising crypto space.
The CEO of Bitget, Sandra Lou, is looking forward to this partnership with Galatasaray, a Turkish football club with lots of history. As a country, Turkey has shown noteworthy interest in the crypto industry, and Bitget is hoping to grow their community with educational and knowledge sharing opportunities in this field. To grow the blockchain ecosystem, the company is looking forward to partnering with like-minded partners and bringing value to their users.
Galatasaray was founded in 1905 in Istanbul, Turkey. It is a team with a strong attachment to the Turkish capital.

Galatasaray is the only team in the country that has the record of winning the Turkish Cup, Süper Lig and the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) Europa League in a single season.
According to the vice-president of the Turkish club, Bike Kanik, Galatasaray has been working hard to look for a crypto company that shares the same vision as the club, and the club is proud to have them on board. Moreover, he said, one of the world’s leading crypto platforms, Bitget, is an appropriate brand to close the mutually beneficial agreement.
