The world of crypto is rich territory for some pretty mind-bending stories.

Nobody saw this coming.

One of the biggest clubs in Brazil and world football has become one of the first teams in history to accept cryptocurrency as a form of payment for match tickets.

After striking up a three-year sponsorship deal with the Brazilian arm of the Mexican crypto exchange, Bitso, S?o Paulo FC announced the commencement of the program late last month.

Using Bitso?s interface, the partnership gives fans the ability to purchase tickets for home games with Bitcoin and other altcoins including Dogecoin, Shiba Inu and Litecoin.

At the moment, the club?s crypto payment program is only available to current club members however, it has been reported that Bitso will make the option available to the general public in the near future.
