Sao Paulo FC, a Brazilian football team, now accepts Shiba Inu token as payment for tickets. Bitso, the official sponsor and partner of Sao Paulo, has announced its acceptance of cryptocurrencies.

Members of Sao Paulo's Socio Torcedor program, including Shiba Inu, may now buy tickets for their team's matches using cryptocurrencies, according to a tweet on its member fan page. In early January, Bitso announced that Shiba Inu would be supported on its platform.

Sao Paulo FC has accepted SHIB via BitPay, according to a SHIB user. BitPay, a cryptocurrency payment processor, began accepting Shiba Inu in late 2021, allowing SHIB to be spent at hundreds of BitPay shops that accept Shiba Inu.

Sao Paulo, one of Brazil's most storied and distinguished clubs, is said to be the first in the country to accept cryptocurrency payments.
