Southampton Football Club and Main Club Partner Sportsbet.io have today announced the opening of the 'Saints Social Club' at the Northam Social Club, funded by a first-of-its-kind Crypto Fan Fund.
Chosen by the fans, the Saints Social Club is the ultimate Southampton fan bar, featuring artwork, kits, and memorabilia celebrating the club's illustrious 136-year history. True to their 'Saints' moniker, the designs also include stunning stained-glass artwork of Southampton heroes, past and present, including James Ward-Prowse, Alan Shearer, and Nathan Redmond.
The launch was marked by an all-day event during Southampton's home fixture against Manchester United and featured a panel with Southampton FC legends Nigel Adkins and Francis Benali, as well as a live performance from the Saints Brass band.
The Saints Social Club will remain open throughout the season for all Southampton fans to enjoy, and will also be used to host additional community events for the Saints Foundation. Fans will be given a Saints Social Club card upon their first visit to Northam, which will get them access to all future events, including every Southampton FC matchday.
Southampton fans abroad will also have the chance to join the Saints Social Club, through the magic of VR. Following the launch, headsets will be donated to dedicated Southampton superfans in countries across the world. Filmed at Northam during the United fixture, the headset will allow international fans to experience the atmosphere of a Southampton matchday and feel part of the Saints family.
Sarah Batters, Director of Marketing & Partnerships at Southampton FC, said:
"It's been brilliant to work in close collaboration with the representatives of our Saints Voice panel and to find out what really matters to them in order to bring the best matchday experiences for our fans. The new Saints Social Club will provide a wonderful opportunity to bring our fans together and act as a real focal point for our local community."
Sportsbet.io launched the Crypto Fan Fund in November, donating two Bitcoins to be used for a fan-led initiative. The Club and Sportsbet.io worked with leading supporters' group, Saints Voice, to decide how the donation would be spent, with fans voting in March to turn Northam - just a stone's throw from St. Mary's Stadium - into a dedicated Southampton FC fan pub.
Helen Edwards, Head of Responsible Gambling at Sportsbet.io, said:
"It's been a privilege to work with Saints Voice and the Southampton fans throughout this process, and we're so excited to see the Saints Social Club come to fruition this summer. Through the Crypto Fan Fund, we wanted to show how crypto can be used to genuinely support fans and help them deliver the initiatives that they want to see, and with the help of Southampton FC and Saints Voice, we're delighted to have been able to do exactly that."
The donation consolidates Sportsbet.io's ongoing commitment as the main club sponsor of Southampton Football Club, and as a leader in the crypto community. The initiative is part of Sportsbet.io's 'Believe the Hype' campaign, encouraging Saints to believe the hype around their club, and around cryptocurrency.

Cybercriminals have targeted the cryptocurrency community since bitcoin's inception, and many crypto owners are falling prey to schemes like phishing.
What is phishing?
Phishing is a digital crime where cybercriminals aim to steal a user's private information. Scammers deploy their attack by disguising themselves as trusted organizations or entities to trick a user into mindlessly handing over details like their Social Security number, credit card information, bank credentials, and in this case, crypto wallet details.
Use Multi-factor authentication
There is no surefire way to keep cybercriminals from attempting to breach an organization's system. However, it is possible to make it harder for attackers to succeed in obtaining sensitive information. Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is an easy passive approach for users to secure their crypto wallets.
MFA adds an extra layer of protection on top of passwords for both an organization and an employee. So, a password will not be enough even if a user falls victim to a phishing scam.
Avoid fraudulent emails
Remember, if something looks too good, it probably is. Over 270,000 Ledger wallet users had their emails extracted in 2020. Phishing attacks, like the breach against Ledger users, promise free wallets that are secretly compromised.
Messages that are urgent or prompt a speedy response may also be phishing scams. Other phishing messages may state that if a user does not act now, their account with whatever legitimate organization the attackers are impersonating will be suspended.
Most reliable companies will offer ample time for customers to get their affairs in order. However, it is best to ignore such messages as this is a favorite method for cybercriminals. When in doubt, contact the source directly to clarify the matter instead of interacting with the potentially fraudulent message.
Also, users should scrutinize emails with a sharp eye — especially ones with such grand requests and promises. Keeping an eye on the email's domain and checking for spelling mistakes could be the telltale signs a user needs to identify the phishing scam.
Keep the private keys secure
Users must keep their private keys, the line of letters and numbers used to access their cryptocurrency that resembles a password, private.
A user's private key is something that they should never disclose.
Use an email filter
To protect against spam messages, users and organizations can use a spam filter that can effectively assess the message's origin and the software used to send the message. In addition, a spam filter may determine whether a message is spam or not based on its appearance.
Email filters are the first line of defense against phishing scams of all sorts and will actively scan any emails going through a user's server for spam, malware, and malicious attachments and links.
Prepare! Prepare! Prepare!
The success of phishing attacks hangs on the preparedness and education of the target. Security awareness training on how phishing scams work can go a long way in keeping a company's and a user's crypto safe.

Sun West Mortgage Company, Inc. (www.swmc.com) CEO Pavan Agarwal is set to attend and speak at this year's The Science of Blockchain Conference 2022 (SBC '22). Co-organized by the Stanford Center for Blockchain Research (CBR) and IC3, the conference will be held at Stanford University, Aug. 29-31, 2022.
Since their founding in 1980, Sun West Mortgage Company, Inc. ("Sun West"), a national leader in Mortgage Originations and Serving, has been committed to core values of people, experience, technology, and product. Now, after years of development, Sun West has recently launched the newest iteration of their proprietary AI platform, MORGAN™, which is redefining blockchain technology, banking tech and the mortgage industry.
Powered by Sun West's sister technology company Celligence (www.celligence.com) and the mass adoption and introduction of blockchain innovation, MORGAN™ reverses what we know of the traditional home buying processes. Sun West's novel application of open ledger technology is ground-breaking and truly advances how real estate sales are transacted and completed.
Pavan Agarwal, founder and CEO of Sun West & Celligence, will attend this year's SBC'22 conference and take to the stage to detail just how Sun West's MORGAN™ employs blockchain technology to convert mortgages into NFTs, thereby removing traditional home buying hurdles, especially for underserved communities.
Marking how the company's latest advanced technology loan product seeks to reach independent, truthful lending and larger equality in the real estate market with built-in blockchain technology, Agarwal will showcase how MORGAN™ is truly one-of-its-kind, and nothing like you've seen before - you will not want to miss it!
Now in its fifth year, The Science of Blockchain Conference focuses on technical innovations in the blockchain ecosystem and brings together researchers and practitioners working in the space. The event will showcase the application of cryptography, decentralized protocols, formal methods and empirical analysis to improve the security and scalability of blockchain deployments.
The conference hosts affiliated workshops related to cryptography, distributed systems and secure computing by fostering collaboration among practitioners and researchers working on blockchain technology. It welcomes the very best in the world of blockchain and crypto space to be program speakers. The full speaker program can be found here.
Mr Agarwal explained "The Framers of the US Constitution understood that land ownership is the path to true political and economic freedom. Although much work is still to be done to achieve universal fair housing & lending, the American system has intentionally distributed property ownership across a broad section of the population. My implementation of the blockchain in Morgan™ is a decentralized platform that increases the accessibility, agility, and transparency of trading real estate amongst Americans and strengthens our Republic. Real estate ownership is deliberately distributed, and I have created Morgan™ so that control of property rights can never fall into the hands of the few."
The conference is free to attend in-person and remotely via live-stream. For full event information visit https://cbr.stanford.edu/sbc22.
