The Urbanball play-to-earn street football game is scheduled for release in December and a Sean Garnier character card will be the top draw in the June 24th NFT drop.
Urbanball is now set for its second drop on the Binance NFT platform, this time featuring the ‘Belgium Edition’ street football NFTs. The first drop that occurred in May was a sellout. The Belgium NFTs, which will be available for purchase on June 24th at 11AM UTC and will be distributed through randomized mystery box packs. They’ll feature real life street football tournament winners from Brussels and Antwerp. 10,000 NFTs will be minted, and each Mystery Box will cost $25 which is 50% lower than the first drop.
Sean Garnier NFT is the top draw in the release
Each mystery box will contain either a character card or skill card NFT. Both are required to play the Urbanball play-to-earn street football game.
● Character cards feature a real life street football player, who earned their place in the drop and game by winning Urbanball 1v1 ‘fightball’ tournaments in their home countries. These tournaments are hosted by 2x World Freestyle Football champion and social media sports icon Sean Garnier, whose character is also included in the 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.
Garnier teamed up with EX Sports
The game will offer players a variety of PVP and PVE modes to compete in. Winners earn rewards that can be redeemed for real life experiences. This first-of-its-kind concept is led by football champion and internet sensation Sean Garnier, who has 19 million social media followers and over 2 billion video views. Garnier teamed up with fan engagement platform EX Sports to give deserving athletes increased exposure and potential revenue streams through innovative NFTs.
In addition to their use in the game, the NFTs also are digital collectables that have real utility. Through a unique revenue model that sees the majority of each primary sale go to the athlete, it can help them grow and develop their careers. Also, holders of the rarest NFTs receive exclusive rewards, such as meet and greets with the athletes.
In the first drop, the holder of the Sean Garnier ‘Flame Edition’ NFT was rewarded with an all-expenses-paid trip with Garnier to Qatar, to meet superstar football player Neymar and watch the Redbull Neymar Jr. tournament.
