Swissx CEO Alki David said his cannabis company Swissx is already in negotiations with Premier League side Everton.
Everton is talking to Swissx about a deal to let the brand taking over as the primary sponsor of the club’s kit, only days after the billionaire David announced that he had talked to Barcelona over naming rights for Camp Nou.
“I’m not walking away from Barca, I’m leaving the door wide open,” David has told Insider in an interview. With discussions over naming rights for Camp Nou, David has now announced that he has started agreements with Everton to get his brand represented on the team’s jerseys front:
“So now we’re working with Everton to take their shirt over. They have contacted me and even proposed prototypes in blue with the whole Swissx emblem, which I’m not sure about but it should look cool.”
David says, “When I first came to England, Man Utd and Liverpool were both sponsored and everybody was purple. Moreover, I liked blue and I liked the slogan so arbitrarily I picked Everton to support. Yeah, it’s kind of magical going around.”
