Major League Baseball team Oakland A. is now selling two-pack tickets for its next series for Dogecoin
The Oakland Athletics are offering tickets in exchange for Dogecoin for their upcoming series against the Toronto Blue Jays at the RingCentral Coliseum. The two plaza infield tickets are going for 100 DOGE, with the Dogecoin-themed special offer which began yesterday to run until Thursday. The Major League Baseball team already confirmed it had sold some tickets, making this the first transaction of its kind in the history of the sport.
The pair of tickets typically costs around $80 when the payment is made in the US dollar. DOGE is, as of writing, changing hands at around $0.445 (up 14% in the last 24 hours) which means fans will get some discount by buying the tickets using the meme crypto coin.
Join us at the ballpark as the Blue Jays roll into town! Two-seat pods in the Plaza Infield are available for 100 Dogecoin for the series, the team posted.
Major League Baseball noted in its press release that the Athletics team was the first team in the league to accept crypto payments.
