By CCN: Crypto price-tracking website CoinMarketCap is sponsoring the Beitar Jerusalem Football Club, an Israeli soccer team. And Israel’s most famous footballer, Yossi Benayoun, is a bitcoin investor. Benayoun retired from Beitar Jerusalem last month.

Luke Wagman, the CEO of CoinMarketCap, proudly touted the news on Twitter. A giddy Wagman even suggested that CoinMarketCap’s sporty new uniforms brought Beitar Jerusalem some good luck in a friendly match against Madrid.

“Thrilled to be featured on the Beitar Jerusalem Football Club’s uniforms yesterday in their match versus Atlético Madrid. They won 2-1! It is exciting to see crypto getting more mainstream attention.”
