Major League Baseball franchise Oakland Athletics is allowing fans to purchase full season suites for the 2021 regular season for one Bitcoin, or $64,800.
The suites seat six, which adheres to California guidelines, and include snacks and access to a private restroom.
General stadium seating is limited to fans in pods of two or four, due to current COVID-19 rules, with suites providing an option for groups larger than four.
The Oakland Coliseum will be able to hold 20-per-cent capacity to start the season.
Six-person private suites for individual games at the 63,132-capacity ballpark are also on sale now for $594 for select April games.
“We invite our fans to become the first Bitcoin suite holders in sports,” A’s president Dave Kaval said.
“We’re excited to be one of a handful of teams to accept cryptocurrency for payment and the first to price tickets in crypto instead of US currency. The price of a season suite may fluctuate depending on when it’s purchased, which adds to the excitement!”
Fans can purchase a full season six-person suite for one Bitcoin until April 1.
Bitcoin, a cryptocurrency, hit an all-time high of $61,557 each on Saturday afternoon.
