UK: Cannabis company Swissx in talks to sponsor Everton Football Club, CEO claims
Swissx CEO Alki David has said that his cannabis company is currently in talks with Premier League side Everton over a deal to have his brand take over as the club's main kit sponsor, just days after the entrepreneur revealed he had spoken to Barcelona regarding naming rights for Camp Nou.
Billionare David hit the headlines in late April when reports erroneously claimed that he and ex-heavyweight champion Mike Tyson were business partners, and that the former boxer's 'Tyson Ranch' cannabis farm in California was interested in becoming Barca's stadium sponsor.
While Tyson Ranch CEO Rob Hickman made it clear to Goal that his company were not in fact in business with Swissx, he did not rule out the possibility of registering interest separately from David.
With talks over naming rights for Camp Nou seemingly hit a snag, David has now revealed that he has commenced negotiations with Everton regarding having his brand represented on the front of team's kits.
