<strong>[PRESS RELEASE – London, United Kingdom, 21st December 2021]</strong>
Flare, the pioneers of the Blockchain-Infrastructure that EVM-compatible smart contracts in simple payment chains like XRPBring, Doge, and others have announced a new partnership with Fan Controlled Football (FCF) to make the collectable NFTs to operate the league and set the stage for a DAO– Prepare voting platform that would create the first professional sports team controlled by a DAO on a blockchain.
FCF will mint and issue the league’s very first commemorative season v1.0 NFTs (non-fungible tokens) on Flare. Each NFT includes a video clip of a key moment from FCF’s exciting v1.0 season, such as Johnny Manziel’s first snap in the league, Josh “Flash” Gordon’s game-winning Hail Mary catch in his first FCF game, or the fan-called, game-winning walk off touchdown in FCF People’s Championship game. As Season v2.0 begins, FCF will continue to capture key moments and offer them to fans through play-to-earn NFT drops that reward fans for participating in player drafting and real-time viewing of the games.
In addition to NFTs, FCF and Flare lay the foundation for a future expansion team that will be fully controlled by a DAO (decentralized autonomous organization) to be built on top of Flare. Flare’s unique blockchain Lego structure will help bring the DAO format to fans for seamless and transparent collaboration, building on the promise of greater community power.
A DAO-led expansion team is following FCF’s vision for innovation and would complement the FCF’s unique team mix, which includes the recently announced Ballerz Collective – two NFT-controlled expansion teams with owner groups that include Steve Aoki, 888, Tiki and Ronde Barber , and the Knights of Degen NFT community.
As part of the partnership, Flare will become a league sponsor and provide the new network with integrated branding during the FCF’s live interactive games, which will be seen by millions of fans around the world on Twitch.tv/FCF, NBCLX, Peacock and DAZN .
Flare’s Turing-full smart contracts and low carbon footprint allow fans to lead their team to stardom on the blockchain without the environmental costs associated with traditional consensus solutions.
Flare isn’t the only example of FCF using advanced technology to improve the fan experience. Ahead of the FCF’s first season in February 2021, the league announced an integration with IBM Watson, hinting that a Watson-led AI expansion team will arrive in a future season.
Hugo Philion, CEO and co-founder of Flare: “After the phenomenal success of the first season, we are very pleased to formalize our partnership with the global sports disruptor Fan Controlled Football. The use of DAOs and NFTs based on flare means football fans have longed for years, but the existing commercial model of the prevented sport is now possible. Excitingly, Season 2 of Twitch is set to explode into the Metaverse and beyond. Passionate American football fans come and own your team and make your calls in real life. “
“We are incredibly excited to be working with Flare and his team to explore all the opportunities the Flare network is opening up for the FCF,” said Sohrob Farudi, CEO and Co-Founder of Fan Controlled Football. “Building on Flare enables us to build communities and ecosystems like XRP, DOGE and Litecoin to tap into that were previously closed to the world of NFTs and blockchain-based play-to-earn gaming. “
