Who would have thought that NFT and Web3 would be fully involved in football. We already know that several professional footballers have collaborated with NFT platforms to release their collection. Footballer NFT cards seem to work well in the web3 market. Fans collect them like in the days of physical cards.
This time we are not talking about the NFTs of Cristiano Ronaldo nor those of Zizou. NFTs and Web3 come as heroes to save a football club beloved by many fans around the world. The real hero of the day is a company involved in promoting web3. In any case, he saved FC Barcelona. And how ?
Barça Studios at the heart of the rescue
Barça Studios is a small company encompassed within the Barça franchise. This subsidiary is responsible for the management of FC Barcelona audiovisual content. The branch is doing well. Football and the club itself are important entertainment elements internationally. Barca Studios could be worth gold judging by the recent events.
Despite this, FC Barcelona had difficulty completing its transfer window. The Barça Studios community and president Joan Laporta have been forced to take an unusual step. They therefore agreed to sell 49% of the shares of Barça Studios to have an operating budget.
A buyer answers the call
Barca Studios have made their share available for sale. To their surprise, Socios.com responded positively to the acquisition. This company is recognized for working in web3 and NFT. It also accompanies football clubs in the web3 to open them up to new horizons.
The sale of the shares was concluded at 25%. For this rate, FC Barcelona received the modest sum of 100 million euros. The president of the club declared that the money collected will be used in particular for the integration of the new days (Lewandowski, Raphinha, Koundé, Kessié and Christensen).
From now on Barça Studios is called Barca Digital & Entertainment (BDE). Then, on the web3, the market is focused on the CHILZ blockchain. FC Barcelona also has its fan token which is the BAR or FC Barcelona Fan Token.
Sport and the web3 a good association
This event confirms that sport really has its place on the web3. The two universes mix perfectly to offer as many people as possible the possibility of a more palpable metaverse. This is already the case with the Major League Baseball (MLB) and the National Football League (NFL).
Regarding the purchase of Barça Studios shares by Socios.com, the objective of the acquirer is to popularize the web3. Presenting FC Barcelona in its ranks is a privilege for the company. It’s also a way to make the club better known through web3 and vice versa.
The NFT came as a hero, the web3 is cheered by football fans. FC Barcelona leaves with a new lease of life.
