The UK’s football association, also known as The Football Association (FA), is looking for a partner that can help them build an NFT platform. As the FA begins its search for a partner, the historical institution has launched a Request for Proposal (RFP) tender process.
The FA is looking forward to building an NFT platform that will be based around the UK’s football legends and players, including both men and women. The women’s team triumphed this year as they won the UEFA Women’s Euro 2022. The final was hosted at Wembley Stadium between England and Germany.
Many football associations around the world are now shifting towards blockchain technology. The FA wants to find new ways for the fans to interact with their favorite football players. Last month, Italian Club S.S. Lazio introduced NFT Tickets for the fans. As the FA dives into the NFT business, a new chunk of investments will be poured into the country’s national sport.
In the Request for Proposal IP, the FA has plans to include authorized England match footage, current player names (and nicknames), photographs, curated content, and player imagery surrounded by the three lions, the Three Lionesses, St. George’s Park (England NT Home stadium), and the FA logo. Additionally, we may also see the iconic ‘caps’ concept, the Wembley Stadium, and FA-owned artifacts featured in the blockchain platform the FA intends to build.
The FA is looking for a partner experienced in blockchain technologies and can build a blockchain-based platform so that they can interact with their fans within the Web3 space.
“As a not-for-profit organization, we are always exploring progressive and viable ways to capitalize on new technology to help grow our fanbase and provide much-needed investment back into the English game.”
“NFTs present a unique and innovative opportunity to engage with our fans through the imagery of The FA and the England Senior Men’s and Women’s teams. Any revenue generated will be for the benefit of the game, whilst importantly offering flexibility for fans to express their fandom in this new exciting medium,” stated Navin Singh, FA Commercial Director.
“This is an exciting opportunity for us to build a new long-term platform around the FA brands and the England teams for the benefit of the game,” he added.
