The San Jose Sharks, a professional ice hockey team that competes in the National Hockey League (NHL), will start accepting Dogecoin, Bitcoin, Ethereum, and some other cryptocurrencies after partnering with payment processor BitPay, Sports Business Journal reports

From the get-go, it will be possible to use crypto for making substantial purchases such as season-ticket memberships and sponsorship deals, according to President Jonathan Becher.

Becher claims that PayPal’s foray into crypto has made the Sharks comfortable with the novel asset class:

We're accepting PayPal, so then by definition, we're accepting cryptocurrency. Why not embrace it and make it more visible as opposed to just doing it through a third party?

Earlier this year, Mark Cuban's Dallas Mavericks also started accepting Dogecoin payments.
