The Athletic reports that the National League is in discussions over an official NFT partner.

"As part of the proposed arrangement, clubs would be expected to regularly post about the tokens on social media."

Can we all agree IF the isthmian league follow suits (hopefully they won’t) we’d as a club condemns & voice our opposition to it. They are a scam & as bad as crypto currency

It'd be a good one for the SC to come out against, but I suppose they'd just wait and see what the club says first.

It’s an inappropriate tie up, I expect , of those that watch non league football , under 1 percent have invested in crypto currency. By having to tweet as part of the sponsorship promotion of NFT’s it indirectly encourages people to invest their hard earned money into a product they know little about. We may all know someone who has made money from bitcoin but I doubt they will say when they have lost. Bitcoin has recently fallen about 30 percent . I would be against an Isthmian NFT tie up but not because it’s like crypto currency or maybe a scam. Its inappropriate for football and probably for the majority of people that support our teams.

In my view, the Isthmian League cannot reasonably require clubs to tweet product endorsements of a sponsor’s product. This particular “partner” sounds completely unsuitable to me. Speaking personally, I think we should actively oppose such an approach.

The Supporters Club policy on this could be discussed at the AGM - where I might add, people can submit motions and put themselves forward for election to the Committee. The Supporters Club policies are set by our members at our meetings - not by the Club’s Director’s but also not on the basis of the odd grumble on this Forum.

Views can be submitted to the Supporters Club at any time by emailing suppporters@kingstonian.com

The league can make us carry adverts for their sponsors on our shirts, website, ground signage and programme. So presumably if they wanted to they could make us promote their sponsor on social.

M' learned friends acting for The Rangers Football Club (2012) Ltd successfully begged to differ with that analysis earlier this week!

...though I doubt there'd be as many K's fans involved in a case in an English court as there are Rangers fans in every legal body in Scotland.

That is true. They can require acknowledgment of sponsorship. In fact Ks acknowledge sponsorship from Surrey Hire on our Twitter adverts.

What has apparently been suggested is requiring clubs to actively tweet about the products, which is a different matter all together.

Hopefully this will not arise.

disagree. it depends on what the deal is.

in the years Banquet sponsored Kingstonian we very very rarely got a mention, but I don't think it would be immoral if we did.

had we made a deal, and paid for it, I think that would be way better a situation than, say, the league being sponsored by a betting company. would be mad to turn down, say £200 a week in exchange for saying "you can get the new Foals album from an independent record shop based in Kingston"

Thanks Jon

I see your point but I do though still think there is a difference between deals made between clubs and their sponsors and those imposed on clubs without consultation

btw Banquet Records is a great local store and focal point within the community - so maybe you should have been more demanding as a sponsor

Breaking the habit of a lifetime and being serious for a tick... The morality bypass operation that everyone connected with football has to undergo still hacks me off to an illogical extent... Even without players taking the knee and wearing rainbow laces.
Pro clubs advertising bunco booth "bookmakers", whose operating policy is the equivalent of rolling the drunk or shortchanging the myopic pensioner (rather than having the cojones to actually make a fucking book and take some actual fucking bets from a possibly hard-grafting & clued-up punter), gets my goat.
But Pitching-In sponsor the ruddy league, so objecting to tie-ups with other "Fleece the Schmoe" operations, though laudable, is almost pathetically half-hearted.
...and Uncle Urchin's Bryco sponsored the Isthmian League Cup for a while (ROFL emojis required here)

How low is the moral/ ethical bar to be set?
Should clubs profit,from selling alcohol or what is term 'junk food',as these apparently are the cause of many ills affecting society?
