"We are a community dedicated to building the future of the internet: Web3. Powered by cryptocurrency, Web3 will be more fair and equitable, owned by the builders, creators, and users," said Marszalek. "We're thrilled to be joining ACFC as a founding partner, deepening our relationship with the City of Los Angeles while supporting a team that shares our values and is equally committed to helping people achieve financial independence and self-determination."

ACFC Co-Founder and President, Julie Uhrman, said that the goal for Angel City is to increase equity for women and that it wants women to be involved in crypto and the Web3 innovations happening today.

“Key to Angel City's goal to drive equity for women is to empower them with the tools and resources to be financially independent,” said Uhrman. 

“Given the speed with which Web3 and cryptocurrency is changing our world, we want to ensure that women are being brought along on the journey as investors and creators. Partnering with Crypto.com was a natural fit given their leadership in the space and mission to level the playing field with crypto. We are excited to work with them to educate our community and players on crypto and allow our players to use the power of NFTs to connect with and create a deeper relationship with their fans.”

Crypto.com has expanded its list of partnerships which now includes UFC, Paris Saint-Germain, the Philadelphia 75ers, the Montreal Canadiens, several esports teams and now ACFC.
