Having some of the best strikers in the game in their squad through the years, Arsenal are a club with a lot of history. And to be a loyal and passionate fan to the team surely has its privileges. You get to watch The Gunners play in different countries, travel through Europe, meet new people and discover new places. The thrill of going on the road and supporting your favourite team is really something else, especially because there’s so much more than football going on during those trips. But let’s focus on the club itself for a moment.

Arsenal are very forward thinking as both a football club competing on a very high level and as a company that depends on making good partnerships and profitable deals with other businesses. One proof for this, is the recent sponsorship deal that Arsenal made with the US cryptocurrency CashBet. This is the first time that a major sports team has signed such deal, and they will promote the firm’s ICO at the Emirates Stadium.

But if you really think about it, it was just a matter of time before the whole crypto hype got into traditional sports like football. I mean, take Bitcoin’s expansion as an example here. There are so many things you can do with it nowadays. From playing with Bitcoin in online casinos all the way up to buying food, clothes and all types of accessories. So let’s dig into this topic a little. Here’s a list of interesting things you can buy with Bitcoin the next time you hop on a plane to support your favourite team.

Airplane Ticket with airBaltic
Get your e-wallet ready because buying airplane tickets got way more fun! To be more specific, airBaltic has become the first airline in the world to support cryptocurrency and allow payments with bitcoin. So, the next time you plan to travel abroad and support Arsenal in any of the 60+ destinations they fly, you can pay with bitcoin.

Rent an Apartment
Stayawhile, a startup that’s building a global network of apartments has started to accept Bitcoin and Etherium for rent payments. This company is among the first ones in the industry to accept cryptocurrency. This means that you can rent a furnished designer apartment with Bitcoin whenever you’re travelling to London, Paris, Berlin in Europe, or NYC, Boston, Philadelphia, Miami or LA in the United States. Pretty cool right?!

Self-Balancing Motorised Unicycle
Since you are traveling abroad, you may be looking for an easier way to get around and explore the town you’re visiting. If this is what you want, a motorized unicycle can come in handy. What’s best, you don’t need to have great body balance to drive around with it it — as this motorized self-balancing model does that work for you.

Burger King Whooper in the NL
Here’s yet another thing you can buy with bitcoins while enjoying the Netherlands. Namely, starting from 2016, one of the most popular fast food restaurants, Burger King is accepting the digital currency. What’s even better, is that you will get two Whoppers for the price of one if bought with bitcoins. This means no hunger while in the Netherlands!

Pair of Alpaca Socks
Another thing that needs to be in your travel bag when visiting a cold country is a good-quality pair of socks. And there’s nothing better than alpaca socks. Wondering why? Surprisingly but true, these llama-like animals have a long history with bitcoins and are considered to be the unofficial bitcoin mascot.

Yummy Cheese Fries
If you happen to be in Portland, Maine and want to fill your tummy with some mouth-watering food and beer, you’re in luck! Visit the Great Lost Bear – a longtime hub for beer lovers which has more than 70 taps, weekly microbrewery events and a large food menu. What’s great about this place, is that you can buy anything on the menu with bitcoins. Sounds delicious, doesn’t it?

Bitcoin Plush Pillow
It always comes in handy to have a pillow with you when traveling whether by bus, train, car, or plane. It will certainly help you snooze off easily! If you want to express your support for the cryptocurrency, you can buy a handmade bitcoin plush pillow.

Subway Foot-Long Sandwich
Similar to Burger King, Subway is also caught the hype of digital currencies and started allowing payments in bitcoin at some locations. Specifically, the ones situated in Buenos Aires in Argentina or Allentown in Pennsylvania.
