Lyou Lakers decided more than a month ago that they will withdraw the T-shirt from Pau Gasol, though no longer hanging at the top of the Staples Center. Now I’ll do it on the roof of the Crypto.com Arena, the new name that the Los Angeles stadium will receive from the next December 25th.
Journalist Shams Charania has been in charge of advancing the agreement signed by the cryptocurrency exchange app and web portal to give the new name to the Los Angeles pavilion where Lakers, Clippers, Sparks and Kings play.
“In the next few years, people will look at this moment and see it as the moment when cryptocurrencies crossed the abyss of the established order,” said Kris Marzalek, CEO of the company, about the operation.
The figure that is handled around the agreement is 700 million dollars, which will make it the largest deal in the history of American sports, surpassing the 600 million over 20 years that SoFi pays to name the Los Angeles stadium where the Chargers and Rams play their NFL games.
