Football, also called association football or soccer, game in which two teams of 11 players, using any part of their bodies except their hands and arms, try to maneuver the ball into the opposing team’s goal.
Football’s governing body, the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), estimated that at the turn of the 21st century there were approximately 250 million football players and over 1.3 billion people “interested” in football.
Truly gigantic audience reach. But along with these gigantic spans come big logistical problems, such as:
easily accessible purchase of match tickets;
long queues for the match;
long queues in fan services;
lack of resources to work with the audience.
We believe that blockchain technology and non-interchangeable tokens can solve these problems. But for clarity, let’s look at specific examples.
FC Barcelona is a unique club. It’s a club with a specific philosophy, deeply rooted in the local identity of the city and autonomous region of Catalonia and at the same time, it’s a global brand and one of the biggest football corporations in the world. A club that has its football academy La Masia as a symbol but at the same time burns money on overrated foreign stars. Also, the owners of FC Barcelona are unique.
Members have also an influence on the functioning of FC Barcelona. First of all, it’s because of them there can be no sheik who comes to Catalonia with a bag of gold to buy the club. It’s a good thing.
The ideology of this club is very similar to the ideology of the blockchain. In addition, it is the largest club in the world and all the problems described above apply to the club in particular.
And so we have a huge audience and serious problems that need to be solved. I think you have already realized that the solution to this problem will be blockchain technology and non-fungible tokens in particular.
However, we will do the same as the topic of the problem and differentiate the solution by a specific example, or a product that can already successfully solve such problems. And this is the Aptos Blockchain solution.
