“Our team is excited to help Kraft Sports and Entertainment build cutting edge experiences for stadium visitors utilising Chain’s proprietary blockchain technology.”

Kraft Sports and Entertainment vice president of sales Murray Kohl said: “The Patriots and Revolution, along with our tech partners, have always strived to be leaders in innovation.

“From being the first pro sports team with a website and creating the first nightly Internet show, to having the longest continuously running podcast in the world, we’ve embraced the opportunities that advances in technology have presented for us and our fans.

“Together with Chain, we’ll look to innovate that same way with their cutting-edge blockchain technology. Our fans will be able to connect with the Patriots and Revolution in ways never before possible.”
