AC Milan has announced a new partnership with MonkeyLeague, a digital soccer game intended for the web3. The game was created on the Solana blockchain, Rossoneri’s new NFT Gaming Partner, and the one with Milan is his first collaboration in the world of football. MonkeyLeague is a strategy-based football game, in which users create and manage their dream team of at least six MonkeyPlayer NFTs (striker, midfielder, defender and goalkeeper), compete against real players and climb the rankings based on their performance. The economy of the game revolves around an internal currency, the MonkeyBucks ($MBS), and internal assets with intrinsic value inside and outside the stock.
The partnership with MonkeyLeague –
This new strategic partnership between MonkeyLeague and AC Milan allows for the creation of exclusive NFT assets under the AC Milan name, such as game outfits, special tournaments, co-marketing events and many other initiatives, including the participation of the AC Milan players -club itself in the playtest of the game. The partnership includes the launch of a new collection of NFT assets related to the game and under the name Milan, such as new MonkeyPlayers, skins and stadiums. The first part of the collection will be auctioned on October 6 at MagicEden. Buyers of some of AC Milan’s MonkeyPlayers will also receive an original physical shirt, signed by the Rossoneri team. MonkeyLeague will also launch its first MonkeyPlayer NFT breeding season with AC Milan, which can generate brand assets. Additional NFTs, such as stadiums and land, will be made available soon.
AC Milan’s comment –
Casper Stylsvig, AC Milan’s Chief Revenue Officer, said: “We are delighted to start this partnership with MonkeyLeague, a partnership that will enable us to strengthen our position in digital innovation. We are proud to be the first football club to partner with MonkeyLeague. Through this partnership, we will bring this game to our fans around the world by providing them with an innovative new way to interact with their favorite team”. NFTs, especially in the gaming world, are not yet frowned upon and their approach to historic brands such as PlayStation is a major annoyance to video game enthusiasts. In particular, some aspects related to the digital object’s promise of uniqueness still arouse suspicion, as there have already been instances where, when the game is closed, the NFTs have simply been duplicated and transferred to other titles.
