Blockchain becoming mainstream through football and sports


As technology continues to evolve, the potential for sports, particularly football, to drive mainstream adoption of blockchain and metaverse technology is becoming increasingly clear.

Blockchain, the technology underlying cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, offers a number of benefits for the sports industry. One of the key advantages is the ability to create and manage digital assets, such as virtual tickets or merchandise, in a secure and transparent way. This can help to reduce fraud and increase trust between fans and teams. Additionally, blockchain can be used to create and manage fan tokens, which give fans a way to directly support their favorite teams and gain access to exclusive experiences and rewards.

The metaverse, a virtual world where users can interact with each other and digital assets in a shared space, also has enormous potential for sports. The metaverse allows teams and leagues to create new revenue streams by creating virtual merchandise, events, and experiences for fans. For example, fans can attend virtual matches, participate in virtual games, and even meet and interact with their favorite players in the metaverse.

One example of this potential is LaLigaLand, a virtual world of the Spanish football league LaLiga, built by StadioPlus and Vegas City, where fans can connect with each other and with their favorite teams and players. LaLigaLand uses blockchain technology to create unique digital assets and experiences for fans, such as virtual tickets and merchandise, which can be purchased and owned using non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

Overall, the potential for sports and football to drive mainstream adoption of blockchain and metaverse technology is clear. The ability to create and manage digital assets, fan tokens and virtual experiences in a secure and transparent way, is making these technologies more accessible to a wider audience. As a result, we can expect to see more and more sports teams and leagues exploring the potential of blockchain and the metaverse in the coming years.

In addition, one of LaLigaLand’s star products is the Season Pass with which fans will be able to access VIP experiences. Some of its benefits are exclusive airdrops for each event organised by LaLigaLand, access to a VIP lounge where there will soon be mini-games just for them.

There are also physical benefits for football fans such as the raffle among the holders of an Official LaLiga Ball.

And more benefits that we will be communicating very soon.

In LaLigaLand clubs can do activations that can be very attractive for their fans. It is the ideal space to celebrate special events, such as the achievement of a title, the celebration of a centenary or a historical milestone of the club.

LaLigaLand has great potential because it can personalise the space with the club’s identity, colours, events, exclusive collections in the museum or the sale of shirts in the Shop.

In the shop, clubs can sell novelty shirts such as the Centenary shirt, a fourth kit that they are going to use for the first time, as is the case of FC Barcelona in this matchday against Girona, or also different merchandising that each team has.

This virtual space of La Liga in Decentraland can be a great meeting point for fans, who can meet and get to know each other in LaLigaLand and strengthen ties.

They can easily identify each other, because very soon LaLigaLand will be selling the jerseys of the 42 teams that make up LaLiga. Undoubtedly, something very attractive for the fans of the teams to be able to meet and buy the shirt of their club, and meet people who wear the same colours as them to get together.

Not only that, users who enter LaLigaLand will be able to enjoy mini-games customised that will make the experience much more fun. They will be able to compete against each other and those who get the best positions will get succulent rewards.

On terms of communication, clubs have an impressive opportunity to make an activation in LaLigaLand.

The content is infinite and the options to connect with the new generations are extremely high. There is no doubt that there is a new way of communicating and we cannot ignore it.

Young people need this type of initiative and clubs need to show an image of an innovative club with great initiatives.
