Peter McCormack acquires a local football club and reveals his agenda–“with Bitcoin at its heart” to the EPL
Peter McCormack plans to leverage a global army of Bitcoin holders and companies, with whose support the small football club will rise to the Premier League.
Famous Bitcoin bull Peter McCormack recently revealed that he became a proud owner of Bedford FC, a local football club in the UK.
In a heart-to-heart Twitter thread, he revealed how this acquisition aligns with a childhood fantasy to bring league football to his town–and how Bitcoin is gonna help this dream come true.
Aiming big–like a Bitcoin bull
In a fourteen tweet-thread McCormack outlined his plans to architecture Bedford FC as a club with “Bitcoin at its heart,” while outlining some of the details of his bullish agenda for the team.

The first phase includes getting the team to the National League, while the second step would be focused on propelling Bedford FC to the Premier League.
“Both phases require a different strategy, but ultimately we need to be commercially successful,” Peter concluded, and according to McCormack–this is where Bitcoin joins the team.
“It is all about winning games, to win games you need the best players and managers. To afford the best players and managers you need to be commercially successful,” he said, as he introduced his strategy.
“I will establish our club as the Bitcoin club, a team that operates on a Bitcoin standard,” said McCormack, who will be incorporating Bitcoin into every possible aspect–starting with merchandise and sponsorship endorsements, an education training program for fans and community members, as well as facilitating open-source development opportunities.
Why should others have all the fun?
“We have so much leverage,” said the bull without any false modesty, adding that he knows everyone in Bitcoin–which will make it easy to “rally the troops.”
“An army of 150 million Bitcoin holders and companies can be part of this journey,” he argued, as he pointed out that teams the size of Bedford FC can typically only tap into a local community of fans and companies to drive revenue.
McCormack has over 432 thousand Twitter followers, while his notorious Bitcoin podcast tops one million downloads monthly–and he is more than ready to leverage his platform and audience.
“Let’s not let FTX, Crypto.com, and Ryan Reynolds have all the fun,” concluded McCormack with sass, as he noted that 3.5 billion people watch the Premier League alone–and guess what?–he plans to use this to communicate the Bitcoin Standard.
Best of luck Bedford!
