Pegasus Football Club Scores Big By Integrating eBoost
From October, supporters will be able to pay online and at the gate with crypto for tickets (including exclusive top-tier seats), apparel in the club shop, and half-time refreshments. EBST can also be used to pay for autographs and photographs with team members.
Gate receipts last year were 97,000,000 HK$ (12,300,000 USD) and this year receipts are predicated to be up over 25 percent. Market research indicates that between 20 percent and 25 percent of all purchases will be made with crypto this season.
In addition, Pegasus have developed a Football Manager game for mobile devices in which the player managers a team through multiple seasons. EBST can pay for in-game items like football shirts, balls, boots, and goalkeepers' gloves.
Pegasus are one of Hong Kong's most beloved football teams. With an international reputation for innovativeness, creativity and versatility, Pegasus decided to become the first club in Hong Kong to accept crypto.
Major shareholder Mr. Lam said: "Pegasus have long been at the forefront of innovation not only in Hong Kong but where ever the noble game of football is played. We were the first national team to employ players from Europe and Africa. Using crypto-currency shows our commitment to the glorious future. Young people in Hong Kong are very fond of crypto and our integration of eBoost demonstrates that we understand the needs of youth."
eBoost (EBST) (http://eboost.fun) was selected by the Board of Directors because it is well-known, listed on the most respected exchanges, and has a limited supply. Mr. Sin, Chief Operations Officer, stated: "Crypto will be integrated into every facet of our revenue model. From buying tickets, to our online store and branded restaurants, customers can soon elect to pay with crypto rather than cash. Our market research indicates that supporters – especially those aged between fifteen and thirty – prefer digital currency to cash and cards. They spoke and we listened."
