SportsIcon is on a mission to connect fans with the greatest sports stars and IP of all time by leveraging the latest advances in Web3. They’re excited to continue their rollout of cinematic-quality NFTs, the sports metaverse and their Lion Club DAO.
SportsIcon will continue to invest in real-world and digital utility for their NFT and token holders by offering exclusive programs you can’t find elsewhere. In the past few months, NFT holders have enjoyed box seats at Wembley Stadium and Madison Square Garden, and attended Q&As with Roberto Carlos, Luis Figo and Baron Davis. But this is only the start of their ambitions for NFT utility: coming soon will be Meet Your Hero events in the sports metaverse, multi-year tickets to watch your hero play in person, the chance to receive personalised training sessions from icons and much more.
