US Women’s Soccer League sponsorship funds from Voyager in jeopardy after bankruptcy

August 2, 2022

The funds promised to the U.S. National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) players by Voyager Digital in a sponsorship deal may not materialize as the lender filed for bankruptcy, Sportico reported Aug. 1.

The league has informed the players that there’s little hope of receiving the funds from Voyager, according to the report.

The NWSL had announced a multi-year deal — one of the biggest deals in the league’s history — with Voyager in December 2021. As part of the deal, the league was supposed to receive half of the payment in cash while the other half was supposed to go to players in the form of crypto. Each player was supposed to get a Voyager account to receive the crypto payments and build their portfolios. Cryptoslate
