Less than a week after announcing impressive strategic partnerships with professional football clubs Kerala Blasters FC (India) and Cádiz CF (Spain), the marketing machine of dog meme crypto project Floki Inu ($FLOKI) has secured another one.

What Is Floki Inu ($FLOKI)?

The idea of creating this cryptocurrency was born on June 25 after Dogecoin ($DOGE) advocate Elon Musk tweeted that the name of his Shiba Inu dog would be “Floki”.

Currently, you could only buy on $FLOKI on the following centralized exchanges: Bitmart; LBank; Gate.io, and Poloniex.

As for decentralized exchanges, you can buy it on Uniswap and PancakeSwap since it “has both an ERC 20 token and a BEP20 token.”

The Floki Inu team says that some of the projects that will use the $FLOKI token are as follows:

  • Valhalla: “A Play-To-Earn NFT gaming metaverse currently being developed by the FLOKI team. Our goal with Valhalla is to get many people who might not have otherwise heard about crypto to explore cryptocurrency and blockchain technology through an NFT game — and to get paid while doing it.
  • FlokiPlace: “The NFT economy is strong and will only become more vibrant. We also look forward to a world where people can easily purchase physical goods with cryptocurrency. FlokiPlaces aims to fill this gap by making it easy for people to trade NFTs and physical goods while paying with cryptocurrency — with the FLOKI token as the core payment option.
  • Inuversity: “FLOKI is working to help create a world where pretty much everyone is exposed to cryptocurrency and the blockchain in some form. To achieve this, we believe educating people about blockchain technology is mission practical. Floki Inuversity will be the premier cryptocurrency education platform. It’s focus is to educate the mainstream audience FLOKI appeals to and get them more familiar with cryptocurrency and blockchain technology.

Floki Inu’s Professional Football Sponsorship Deals

On November 18, we had two such announcements.

The first one was in India with Kerala Blasters FC:

The second one was in Spain with Cádiz CF:

Well, yesterday (November 23), the FLOKI team said that it had done sponsorship deal with another professional football team: Italy’s Società Sportiva Calcio Napoli (aka “S.S.C. Napoli”), which plays in Serie A, the top flight of Italian football.

In a notice posted on its website yesterday, the Italian football club said that it was “pleased to announce a partnership with the Meme coin brand Floki, which will become the club’s new back-of-shirt sponsor.”

It went on to say FLOKI’s marketing department had this to say:

We like to define Floki as the cryptocurrency of the people. In our plans to be the most known and most used cryptocurrency in the world, SSC Napoli will represent a key asset, given that the club is a global brand with an amazing history together with a fantastic fanbase. We can’t wait to start working with them and support SSC Napoli on the pitch thanks to our logo’s presence on the playing jersey.

And Serena Salvione, Chief International Development Officer at SSC Napoli, stated:

In the first few weeks of close collaboration, leading up to this partnership announcement today, SSC Napoli and Floki have found out to share strong values and similar growth aspirations. With SSC Napoli showing our creativity in many areas, we believe this new agreement reinforces our commitment to always engage in innovative partnerships and to be on the edge of new trends and new products.

Finally, the club mentioned that this partnership, which became effective yesterday, “includes the back-of-shirt branding for the SSC Napoli first team, LEDs around the pitch for all domestic home games plus other significant promotional assets.”
