Inter are working to recover at least some of the money that they are owed on their shirt sponsorship agreement with cryptocurrency company DigitalBits.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the Nerazzurri will seek to bring in as much of the €23 million they’re owed by DigitalBits for this season as they consider the situation going forward.
Inter took to the pitch with the DigitalBits logo on the front of their shirts in yesterday’s Serie A opener against Lecce, but this could hardly mask the turmoil that surrounds their partnership with the cryptocurrency company.
DigitalBits’ financial woes are now widely known, and they have been late on initial payments of their sponsorship deals with the Nerazzurri as well as with Roma.
Inter are more than aware that the multi-year arrangement with the cryptocurrency company is in serious jeopardy, and they are now considering possibilities for a new shirt sponsor, with a focus remaining on digital and technology companies.
In the meantime, however, the Nerrazzurri are going on with DigitalBits as the main shirt sponsor, and they are still hoping to collect as much of what they’re owed as is possible.
