LIV Golf League side Majesticks has announced crypto currency exchange OKX as their first official global sponsor. 

The team, comprising of Lee Westwood, Ian Poulter, Henrik Stenson and Sam Horsfield will wear the logos on their team kits. Laurie Canter has also played for the side. 

The news was announced during the rival league's mid-season break. There are seven more events to play in the LIV Golf season, starting with Valderrama in Spain before the 'rebels' head back to Centurion Club just outside of London. 

Just before the US Open, LIV's North American rivals announced a landmark deal to align the commercial interests of the DP World Tour, PGA Tour and Saudi Arabia's PIF. 

It led to speculation over whether or not LIV Golf would continue.

Poulter, Westwood and Stenson have faced a barrage of criticism for joining the rival league. Poulter and Westwood played in LIV's inaugural event last June before they were joined by the Swede. 

It led to Stenson being stripped of the European Ryder Cup captaincy. 

LIV Golf supremo Greg Norman, who is facing separate legal issues, is said to have told staff in the immediate aftermath of that it was business as usual for the foreseeable future. 

"LIV is and will continue to be a standalone enterprise," Norman allegedly told staff.

"Our business model will not change. We changed history and we're not going anywhere."

Poulter has pledged that the partnership with OKX will be an 'amazing experience for the fans to go behind-the-scenes'.
