The Sports Metaverse, a virtual world specifically focused on sports, Thursday announced the launch of a public land sale, where landowners, in the first phase, can acquire a high-quality fan cave to hang out with friends across the world, customize their own NFTs, play pool, stream sports events, advertise and let their land to tenants.
The Sports Metaverse claims to be the first digital world devoted solely to sports, uniting prominent sports stars, brands, and clubs together in one place.
Users can trade NFTs, buy land, interact with iconic sportspeople, and visit stadiums.
In the longer term, there will be social spaces with big screens and retail, as well as 3D immersive experiences with athletes and fans having 24X7 access to the metaverse.
Special purpose land like building a stadium or an event hall will also be possible.
‘We’ve assembled the best metaverse builders in the space, the most forward-thinking web3 brands, and some of the biggest sports people of all time. The Sports Metaverse is the new frontier – the future of sports is billions of fans instantly connected with one another, their sports icons and brands in the metaverse,” SportsIcon CEO and Co-Founder Chris Worsey said.
To optimize the appeal of its virtual real estate, Sports Metaverse said it was also partnering with LandWorks, a protocol developed by EnterDao, that enables VR landowners to let their land permissionlessly, listing it for specific prices on which would-be tenants can make bids.
