Title: Sports Industry Transforming To New Age By Adapting NFTs

Sports Industry Transforming To New Age By
Adapting NFTs
Author Rikta Mandal
  • NFTs in sports are exploding. More and more
    athletes, clubs, and sports are getting on the
    Crypto collectibles bandwagon, from the NBA to
    the worlds largest football clubs. The NFT
    platform has the potential to have a significant
    impact on the sports world and provide
    significant benefits to athletes. 
  • Sports NFTs are digital souvenirs and trading
    cards featuring your favourite athletes from any
    sport. The Golden State Warriors were the first
    professional sports team to issue its own NFTs in
    April this year.
  • Previously, exchanging sports items and
    memorabilia for money, such as cards, signed
    jerseys, and so on, was a bit of a hassle. Thanks
    to NFTs, sports fans can now verify the
    legitimacy of such things on the blockchain and
    conduct peer-to-peer swaps in seconds. 
  • NFTs tamper-proof and distinctive properties
    protect not only the ownership but also the
    appeal of rare sports memorabilia.
  • Weve included a few of these platforms below,
    along with the attributes that distinguish them.

Sports Industry in NFT
  • NBA
  • Sorare
  • Rario
  • NFL and NFLPA
  • Dugout

1. NBA
  • Dapper Labs, a key blockchain business, has
    partnered with the NBA, the worlds premier
    basketball league, to create NBA Top Shot, a
    well-known sport-related NFT application.
  • Basketball fans will be able to buy and sell
    highlight video clips from top-tier games as a
    result of this. These reels are accompanied by
    NBA-licensed digital items.
  • The owner does not have the right to duplicate or
    profit from the clips, but he or she does have
    the right to use, copy, and show them, according
    to these licences. So far, sales of NBA Top Shot
    have totalled over 500 million.

2. Sorare
  • Sorare, a creative mix of sport, gaming, and
    blockchain, is another significant NFT project
    focusing on collecting features. Sorare is a
    global fantasy football game in which players can
    take on the role of manager and purchase and sell
    players for their squad.
  • Sorare has partnered with over 100 well-known
    football clubs throughout the world, including FC
    Bayern Munich, Liverpool F.C., Real Madrid C.F.,
    and players from MLS Players Associations, to
    bring these players on its platform via licencing
  • Participants in Sorare can not only buy and sell
    digital player cards, but also create a team and
    earn rewards based on real-world performance in a
    soccer fantasy league.

3. Rario
  • Rario is the first Polygon-based cricket NFT
    platform with an official licence, allowing fans
    to purchase digital souvenirs of their favourite
  • Outside of Ethereum, Polygon offers the strongest
    NFT DeFi composability of any blockchain.
  • The company has also teamed with cricketers such
    as Zaheer Khan and Faf Du Plesis of South African
    team presumably to make NFTs centred on them.

4. NFL and NFLPA
  • The National Football League (NFL) and the
    National Football League Players Association
    (NFLPA) are collaborating with Dapper Labs to
    develop digital video highlights as nonfungible
    tokens (NFTs) for NFL fans soon. 
  • The new digital artefacts will allow NFL fans to
    collect and own some of the finest and most
    talked-about in-game moments from prominent
    players. It would include current-day superstars
    and veterans of the game, week after week
    throughout the season.
  • Fans will now have the opportunity to own and
    collect some of the greatest plays in NFL

  • NASCAR has partnered up with NFT venture
    Virtually Human Studio in a move to appeal to a
    younger audience (VHS). ZED Run, a digital horse
    racing game owned by VHS, will now feature
    NASCAR-branded horses. 
  • The goal of branding digital horses for NASCAR is
    to pique the interest of a younger audience in
    the auto racing league. The average age of NASCAR
    TV viewers in the United States was 49 in 2006.
    By 2016, the average age had risen to 58 years.
    The exposure of the company through ZED Run is an
    attempt to engage a younger audience.     
  • Generally, Horse racing is an elite sport and its
    average price is approximately 76,000, while the
    cost of entering stake races ranges from 3,000
    to 50,000. 
  • While here users can buy, market, breed, and race
    digital racehorses as NFTs through the ZED Run
    ecosystem. Users can invest as much as they wish
    in developing their digital asset, with race
    entrance fees ranging from 2 to 15. 

6. Dugout
  • The Korean baseball leagues NFT marketplace is
    titled Dugout. It acquires limited versions of
    NFT-based baseball highlights cards, similar to
    NBA Top Shots, which one may resell to make
  • One can either buy packs of cards and try to
    uncover valuable NFT moments in them, or one can
    purchase their favourite moments on the
    platforms marketplace. Regardless of all these
    things, the truth is that the cards one gathers
    are entirely theirs.

  • Based on the popularity of sports NFT platforms,
    its realistic to predict that more variations of
    these solutions will emerge in the next few
    years. On the one hand, the growth of the
    non-traditional sports market will drive sports
    teams and sportsmen to rethink how they interact
    with their supporters.
  • Fans, on the other hand, would get far more
    involved in their favourite sports and even be
    able to profit from them. Overall, its a win-win
    situation for all parties concerned.
