Soccer fans rejoice – Spain’s premier soccer league LaLiga is entering Web3! It is teaming up with Dapper Labs to build a platform set to become the “NBA Top Shot” of soccer. The launch date for this highly-anticipated platform is October 27, and fans can participate by joining a closed beta waitlist.
What are Laliga Golazos NFTs?
The new platform – named Laliga Golazos – will allow fans to purchase video NFTs of the most talked-about moments from 2005 onwards. Therefore, through the NFTs, it aims to bring Spanish soccer fans closer to their favourite team.
The video NFTs – called “Moments” – will feature the most iconic plays of all Spanish clubs and will be available in both Spanish and English. “Moments” will capture goals, saves, assists and dribbles that changed the world of soccer.
“LaLiga is steeped in history, tradition, and legendary moments and our fans are some of the most passionate in the world and we are excited to offer a new way for them to experience the moments they love,” said Óscar Mayo, Executive Director at LaLiga.
LaLiga Golazos is built on Dapper Labs’ Flow blockchain. This blockchain is quickly becoming the go-to for sports organisations. Therefore, LaLiga Golazos is in good company, as Dapper Labs’ Flow is home to NBA Top Shot and NFL ALL DAY.
