Monkey League x AC Milan Partnership Announcement

MonkeyLeague is the next-gen Web3 esports game that empowers its players to participate in Play2Earn. A strategy-based football game, in which users build and manage their own dream team!

Both have signed lots of Web3 partnerships in the past. AC Milan recently partnered with Sorare to bring NFTs to Italian football, while MonkeyLeague NFTs were selected by OpenSea back in April as one of the few chosen projects to participate in the beta version of their newly created Solana NFT marketplace back then.

“Partnering with champions like AC Milan, an absolute iconic Club throughout footballs history, is another testament to what we are building and where we are headed as a game and game studio. It also represents a key step in our plans to bridge the Web2 and Web3 worlds.” 

Oren Langberg, Head of Marketing & Partnerships at MonkeyLeague

“We are thrilled to kick off this partnership with MonkeyLeague, a collaboration that allows us to strengthen our positioning in the field of digital innovation. We are particularly proud to be the first football club to partner with MonkeyLeague, bringing this game to our supporters around the world and offering them a new innovative way to engage with their favourite team.”

AC Milan will sponsor several high-profile future MonkeyLeague esports tournaments, bringing the world’s best players together to play in their hotly-contested matches, earning exclusive rewards, as they say! In the meantime, promotions galore will also take place with prizes, including VIP match tickets to some of the most important games at the San Siro stadium and signed AC Milan Shirts!
