FTX has been busy acquiring well-known athletes such as Tom Brady

FTX has signed with athletes, the company also recently purchased the naming rights to a new football stadium. That stadium is UC Berkley Football Stadium, home of the Golden Bears of Cal Berkley. The deal is worth $17.5 million and is valid for ten years. In addition, it allows FTX to retain some personal ties to the stadium along with naming rights. Those connections include former players, including FTX COO Sina Nader, who played for the Golden Bears at the walk-on position. Bankman-Fried’s father was also a graduate of the school.

To date, the charity has provided 17 million meals to children in Oakland and their families.
