Stripchat sets goal to score with Inter Milan football in $ 28million shirt offer
The name Pirelli has been synonymous with Internazionale (Inter Milan) for three decades.
Hundreds of millions of football fans around the world would have remembered the iconic scenes of 2010, when Inter knocked out Europe to a hat-trick, to top it off with the 2010 UEFA Champions League title.
Right now, Inter are set to break Juventus’ nine-season hegemony and win their first title since that 2009-10 season, which was the last of five consecutive crowns.
Basically, they’re in a good position right now: on the verge of being champions and returning to the Champions League next season.
It will be with a new shirt sponsor, however, as Pirelli ends their 30-year contract.
One of the leading adult webcam companies, Stripchat has offered Inter $ 28 million to be their next shirt sponsor. The deal would give the company a new fan base, to keep pace with the already growing one, which has been aided by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Here’s a question and answer session with Stripchat’s VP of New Media, Max Bennett, about the business and the company.
Why Inter in particular?
It has been reported that their contract with Pirelli expires at the end of the season. Given their popularity right now – sitting atop the Serie A table – we thought it would make sense for us to jump into the mix and expand an offer. There are a lot of crossovers between our basic demographics.
Would football be okay because of the visibility of the jersey?
Yes, that would give Stripchat visibility across the world. Inter is not only popular in Italy, but also in many other countries. It’s a wonderful opportunity for us.
I know you tried to sponsor the Superdome. Have you thought about other teams (Manchester United for example)?
It really depends on their sponsorship contract. But we are always looking for ways to generate visibility for our website.
There are so many game companies sponsoring shirts (I think over 50-60% in some leagues). Obviously times are changing, so do you think people and league leaders will come to terms with that at some point?
I really hope! I cannot speak on behalf of gambling companies, this is not my field. However, I can give my comment on behalf of live streaming sites adopting new technology. At Stripchat, we are building an open-minded community that accepts people from all over the world to live streams and exchange opinions on our platform. Giving it better visibility means more opportunities for people to interact and use our platform.
People might not be sure how big your site is, but if you could just explain how great it is and is getting every year.
Stripchat receives an average of over 240 million visitors per month from all over the world. Here at https://www.livecamlink.com/stripchat/ is a recent blog we published.
Has the pandemic affected the numbers?
Indeed, we reported an overall traffic growth in 2020 having 906,181,416 total new users vs 537 938 778 in 2019, and it is worth saying that Americans have clearly taken a liking to it, because 90% more users (160340612 against 84.162.712) came to the platform in 2020 compared to 2019.

How did you use the crypto boom to help the business and the workers?
We are always looking to adopt better technologies and provide our users with more convenient ways to make payments. We recently announced we accept Dogecoin.
