At the start of 2022, we met up with Futera — a sports card publisher preparing to enter the NFT space with their project FUTERA UNITED.
Catching up with them again two months in, the Club and the project have taken considerable strides to become the proper Football Club of the Web3 era.
On Thursday, Futera revealed a partnership with ONE37pm, where the media company’s name will be donned on all kits for the 2022 season.
ONE37pm will also distribute content based around Futera United and create further social media buzz for the club.
They’ve signed a long-term lease on facilities for the Club’s home in Bangkok, Thailand and brought in the world-class coaching staff.
They are undefeated in their first two league games.
They’ve undertaken several ‘world’s firsts’ in the NFT space. In March, they held an open trial for players to try out for Futera United.
FUTERA UNITED NFT holders voted on who made it through to the final squad.
- NFT holders voted on the design of the Club’s Logo.
- The same goes for the kits; holders gave their input on an array of first colors and designs to choose from. After, the results are Black and Gold for Home and Pink and Blue for Away.
NFT holders, and viewers can receive POAPs for virtually attending the match.
The team is represented in three competitions this season, including the Thai FA Cup. The club has a chance to be drawn against one of the heavyweights of Thai Football.
And to cement their place as the Football Club of Web3:
The Futera Dome is a Metaverse stadium in the SANDBOX where as a Futera United NFT holder you’ll have access to amenities.
Futera Museum is an archive for their greatest ever cards.
A Futera United store will be available where users can purchase IRL and virtual goods.
The most exciting Football stadium in the metaverse where you can hangout with your online friends.
Perhaps you’ll bump into the Futera United players or even world football stars and influencers!
Next, they have purchased the land, brought in a team of metaverse builders and artists and will take you on the journey of creating this incredible venue.
