SuperOne, a leading blockchain gaming company creating the first gamified social network, announced on Thursday, December 1st, that it has partnered with Footballco – the world’s largest media company – to promote and spread awareness of SuperOne, and FIFPRO – the global football player’s union.
In a press release shared with Cryptowisser, SuperOne said the partnership is designed to license the game content and empower value-creation for football players in the new digital economy.
SuperOne revealed that it had created a unique trivia battle game aimed at football fans, addressing a significant gap in the industry. The first to be released is a Battle Royale game, where players fight each other to avoid elimination, be the last fan standing, and ultimately, win prizes.
While commenting on this latest development, Andreas Christensen, Techowner and Founder of SuperOne, said;
"Footballco and FIFPRO represent the two most prominent avenues to achieve mass adoption in the football gaming industry. This trinity of football collaboration will disrupt the gaming industry, and we are humble, yet proud, of this achievement."
SuperOne added that it is partnering with Footballco, the world's largest football content and media business – with brands such as Goal, Kooora and Mundial. The team explained that it would benefit from Footballco's unrivaled global scale – reaching 640 million football fans and generating more than a billion video views per month.
SuperOne to enjoy a global reach
The partnership also means that SuperOne has become the exclusive presenting partner of the GOAL50 - the world's biggest fan-voted player awards with an integrated content and media campaign in eight languages.
Footballco's VP of Global Football Partnership, Andy Jackson, added that;
"We are delighted to work with SuperOne to help launch their exciting offering to football fans worldwide. We share a common goal of providing football fans with memorable and rewarding digital experiences."
SuperOne partners with FIFPRO
In addition to Footballco, SuperOne revealed that it had partnered with FIFPRO, the leading football trade union. SuperOne explained that FIFPRO Commercial Enterprises B.V. brings together agreements from each participating country to offer the world’s most comprehensive package of names, images and likenesses of active football players for use, on a collective basis, in the digital entertainment sector.
FIFPRO’s Commercial Director, Andrew Orsatti also commented that;
"We're pleased to welcome SuperOne to the FIFPRO family in an innovative partnership that champions the rights of professional players worldwide. We've combined the passion of football fans with brain-twisting trivia, in a blood-pumping race against the clock, with great prizes on offer. It's an ideal companion in between watching all the drama of the World Cup in Qatar."
