Transnational hotel will accept tokens of Brazilian football clubs.
Accor multinational hospitality chain, of French origin, closed an agreement with Brazilian startup Footcoin, to accept the criptoactives of soccer teams in Brazil and the rest of South America. The information was released on Tuesday, April 16, by the specialized magazine HotelierNews.
The association will benefit the fans of the first division teams Corinthians, Fortaleza and Atlético Mineiro, which launched their own tokens with the help of Footcoin. Now, fans who acquire the crypto-active of any of these teams, will be able to exchange their value for discounts in hotels of the French group, reported the media.
According to the information, fans who follow their clubs in South America, and have tokens GaloCoin, LeãoCoin and TimãoCoin, will receive discounts of 20% on the network of budget hotels (ibis, ibis Styles and ibis budget). If you opt for reservations in the luxury network (Grand Mercure, Pullman, MGallery and Sofitel), the discount will be 30% in all of South America.
The Accor hotel corporation owns, manages and grants franchises for hotels, resorts and vacation properties in 100 countries and has more than 4,200 hotels worldwide. Fernanda Zupo, manager of Alliances and Marketing of the network, said the alliance will be an “opportunity to receive in our amateur hotels that travel together with the team, which will allow us to expand the exposure of our brands.”
On the other hand, José Rozinei da Silva, CEO of Footcoin, affirms that having a partner like Accor, promotes the credibility of the cryptoactive management platform integrated to sports projects. Last year, the Brazilian soccer clubs Fortaleza and Atlético Mineiro, launched their respective tokens developed by the startup. They were followed by the Corinthians club in March of this year, and according to the company’s disclosure, 2019 new teams will join the platform.
