Former Manchester United Player Reveals Exclusive Metaverse Club

- The club is expected to launch next month.
Sports and crypto partnerships are growing by the day, with more and more players, teams, and clubs looking for ways to get in touch with their fans and followers.
In an effort to do the same, one of the most well-known football players Phil Jones today unveiled his new Metaverse Project of an exclusive club.
Football and Metaverse
Manchester United player Phil Jones presented the Red Lion Sports Club (RLSC) today, which is intended to be a Metaverse exclusive club, in partnership with media platform Antourage.
RLSC will be a member-exclusive club with only 4000 spots available, which can be owned only via a metaverse-ready NFT, which will act as a key for the club.
These ‘key’ NFTs will be released on the Solana blockchain, and each of these NFTs will be worth around 2 SOL which translates to about $258.24 at the time of writing.
The club will be a fan-focused environment with fan-influenced content and other events which will be conducted in accordance with the sporting occasion.
Commenting on the same, Phil Jones stated,
“The idea behind the Red Lion Sports Club is to enable a new way of engaging with fans that promotes a genuine sense of community rooted in mutual respect for other members. RLSC will be a venue for fans of all sports who want to have a say in how a digital community grows and develops, interact with athletes, celebrities, and other members, and influence the content created around major events.
The club is planned to be launched in the next month. It will establish itself in a top Metaverse and build itself up in preparation for the upcoming Football World Cup, which will be hosted in Qatar from November 21.
ManU in the Past
The club is well-known in the football space and the crypto space. As reported by FXEmpire, back in February, the football club signed a multi-year sponsorship contract with Tezos for $27 million per year.
In the same week, Manchester United’s 1992 squad-inspired DAO called “CO92” was announced by the club’s former players, focusing on enabling football fans to invest in sports-related organizations.
Thus, it seems apparent that the football club has a significant prominence in both spaces and will continue to carry it forward, either by itself or with its players’ help.
