AC Milan sponsored by BitMEX

AC Milan has recently extended its partnership with BitMEX, which now designates the crypto exchange as AC Milan’s premium partner, in addition to holding the title of the team’s official cryptocurrency trading partner since 2021. BitMex is also the first sleeve sponsor of AC Milan’s eSports team, AQM.

The BitMex logo will appear on the sleeves of both the men’s and the women’s kits in all competitions, including the UEFA Champions League.

BitMEX was reportedly paying €5 million annually for its initial sponsorship of AC Milan. However, the specific terms of the new extended deal have not been disclosed.

The deal marked BitMex’s first sponsorship deal in football and esports as the exchange looked to expand brand awareness beyond the digital asset domain. The collaboration offers the international Rossoneri fanbase access to a broader range of crypto services and products. As part of the sponsorship package, eligible AC Milan fans gain access to exclusive offers as both parties explore ways to engage fans.
