May 12, 2022 - Chelsea Football Club today announced a new partnership with Amber Group, a global leader in digital asset products and infrastructure.
As part of this historic partnership, Amber Group will become the club’s official sleeve partner, with the logo of WhaleFin – the company’s flagship digital asset platform – emblazoned across the kit of both the men’s and women’s teams from the start of the 2022/23 season.
As the first digital asset partner for Chelsea Football Club, Amber Group will introduce WhaleFin to football fans around the world. Built with the deep expertise that Amber Group has developed serving both institutional and retail digital asset markets, WhaleFin is an all-in-one platform that serves as a gateway to crypto finance for everyone. Amber Group’s focus on raising WhaleFin’s profile through this partnership underscores the growing prominence of digital assets, and the role it plays in helping investors build wealth in the digital era.
As part of the partnership agreement, Chelsea and Amber Group will collaborate on a range of partnership activities which will focus on growing the WhaleFin brand globally. The two will also work together on a series of sustainability initiatives that are central to Amber Group’s ongoing commitment to build a sustainable future for all. The company most recently announced collaborations with the Whale and Dolphin Conservation and Moss Earth, and is expected to broaden its support of sustainability initiatives globally.
