Sean Garnier NFT Launch With EX Sports | Street Football Play-To-Earn IGO December 2022, Drop Includes Adonias Fonseca & Mehdi Amri

2 min read

April 19, 2022 – A unique Urbanball NFT collection will be launched by Binance NFT, the NFT marketplace of Binance, the world’s leading blockchain ecosystem and cryptocurrency exchange, in collaboration with EX Sports. There are many ‘underdog’ athletes and overlooked talent in the world of emerging niche sports and NFTs. Urbanball is set to become the world’s first play-to-earn street football mobile game, built on the BNB Chain. Urbanball NFTs consist of character and skill cards. Both are required to play the game:

  • Character cards are based on real-life street football players, who earned their place in the game by winning and impressing at 1v1 football tournaments in their home countries. These tournaments are hosted by two time World Freestyle Football Champion, Sean Garnier. Garnier will be included in the NFT drop as the top draw.
  • Skill cards consist of different football techniques that can be used to enhance the performance of characters in the game.

There will be a variety of game modes where users will have their characters compete in PVP and PVE battles, with winners earning special rewards.

This first-of-its-kind project is led by 2x world freestyle football champion and internet sensation, Sean Garnier, who has 19 million social media followers and has racked up 2 billion video views. Garnier teamed up with EX Sports, a fan engagement and digital collectibles platform, to give real-life athletes increased exposure and new potential revenue through innovative NFTs that can be used in future games.

Initial Game Offering (IGO) in December

Multiple NFT drops are planned throughout the year in the run-up to a full initial Game Offering (IGO), set for December 2022. Each drop will contain new characters based on high performers and winners of real-life 1v1 football tournaments. It will include players such as Adonias Fonseca, Mehdi Amri and Radheya Marca, who combined have over 5 million social media followers. The tournaments give millions of talented athletes the opportunity to be featured in the game, whether they are in the favelas of Brazil, the slums of Malaysia or Paris’s urban jungle.

NFT Mystery Box Drop

The first NFT Mystery Box will consist of either a character or skill card from the United Kingdom Pack and will drop exclusively through the Binance NFT marketplace on Tuesday 3rd May 2022 at 3 pm GST.

EX Sports and Sean Garnier pre-launched the world’s first freestyle football NFTs at Gitex 2021 in the Dubai World Trade Center, which was the year’s largest and most exciting Technology Exhibition, globally. The same venue also hosted Binance’s Blockchain Week between 28th-30th March 2022.

In addition to the NFT pre-launch, EX Sports recently hosted a unique three-day tournament in partnership with Dubai Tourism and Redbull. The tournament saw five of the world’s top street football players compete and showcase their incredible skills. Each of the athletes were scouted and flown to Dubai from a different country, and many will be part of the initial NFT drop on Binance NFT. It will enable them to earn royalty fees through NFTs.

The collaboration between Binance NFT and EX Sports developed because both recognize the potential to nurture upcoming talent, while also supporting the growth of niche sports. EX Sports aggregates sports IP and aims to create an ecosystem with real beneficial utility for ‘underdog’ athletes.
