MetaSoccer is the first football management game in the metaverse
MetaSoccer joined forces with the Brazilian football team Vasco da Gama to kick off an exciting game journey for football enthusiasts. MetaSoccer is the first soccer virtual world where players can manage their club and generate income from the gameplay. The team has successfully formed some critical partnerships over the past few months. The signing of Vasco is crucial and will provide a solid foundation for the advancement of MetaSoccer’s near-term roadmap.
Football is without a doubt the most popular sport in the world. According to FIFA, the 2018 World Cup final was watched by 1.1 billion people. By comparison, the 2021 Super Bowl final with 112 million viewers paled in performance. Now moving the lens to focus on the metaverse, does virtual football also live up to fans’ expectations? The answer is yes. MetaSoccer, the first soccer metaverse game that allows players to manage their club and generate income, is already a football enthusiasts’ favorite.
MetaSoccer announced on its official Twiter today that Vasco da Gama became the first real-world soccer club to join the ecosystem.
Who is Vasco da Gama?
Club de Regatas Vasco da Gama or Vasco da Gama, is a Brazilian professional sports club based in Rio de Janeiro. Initially, a rowing club founded in 1989, the football history of Vasco da Gama is also time-honored. Portuguese immigrants created the professional football department on November 26, 1915, and therefore enjoys a strong fanbase among the Portuguese community of Rio de Janeiro. According to many surveys, Vasco is the fifth-most supported club in Brazil, with more than 8 million fans.
MetaSoccer’s successful partnership with Vasco da Gama brings significant exposure to the project. Furthermore, it’s a marketing campaign targeting 8 million Vasco supporters and potentially attracting the attention of Brazilian and Portuguese football fans.
MetaSoccer’s ambitious roadmap
Sports management simulation games, such as Sega’s Football Manager, provide players with a sense of mastery. Everything is under the user’s control from training athletes, player transactions to business management. However, one element is missing: ownership of players’ in-game assets. As a result, play-to-earn games come into play to address this problem.
In MetaSoccer, all assets are non-fungible tokens that live on the blockchain. This way guarantees that users will have true ownership over their assets. More importantly, players can earn incomes from matches and leagues with these assets or trade them for premium.
The team has laid out an ambitious roadmap for the project, and their effort yielded several critical milestones for the first phase of the roadmap.
For instance, the game has a passionate community with over 100 thousand Twitter followers, and the number keeps going up. MetaSoccer has successfully raised over 2 million dollars in its MSU token private sale. Last but not least, all asset drops have sold out in record time.
The MetaSoccor game and its play-to-earn mechanics will keep evolving throughout the year 2022. Meanwhile, a community-driven ecosystem empowered by DAO will gradually take shape.
Metaverse’s first football management game is worth looking forward to. DappRadar will continue to monitor the development of the project. For the latest news in the sphere of dapps, you can also follow DappRadar’s Twitter to stay updated.
