Initially this summer, the Sacramento Kings basketball team also collaborated with MiningStore (a crypto mining supplier) to get ETH mining hardware installed in an indoor arena that was supposed to pass crypto earnings to a scholarship program.
Also, earlier this June, the world's largest crypto exchange, Binance, made a confidential investment into esports voting platform chiliZ based on blockchain, to provide a "fan-driven token ecosystem for traditional sport teams" to the sports industry.
