Sports Metaverse launches virtual land sale

Sports Metaverse launches highly anticipated virtual land sale on July 14th & 15th, introduces strategic partnership with LandWorks

The Sports Metaverse by SportsIcon, a virtual world focused on sports, has announced that its initial public land sale will take place on the 14th and 15th of July on

In the first phase, landowners can acquire a high-quality fan cave where they can hang out with friends from all over the world, customise their own NFTs, play pool, stream sports events, advertise and let their land to tenants. Longer term, there will be social spaces with big screens and retail, as well as 3D immersive experiences with athletes, taking fans closer to them than ever before, with 24/7 access. Special purpose land use such as e.g. for building a stadium or an event hall will be possible on the basis of individual order and design by Sports Metaverse.

SportsIcon CEO and Co-Founder Chris Worsey said: “We’ve assembled the best metaverse builders in the space, the most forward-thinking web3 brands and some of the biggest sports people of all time. The Sports Metaverse is the new frontier – the future of sports is billions of fans instantly connected with one another, their sports icons and brands in the metaverse. The Sports Metaverse land sale is the first page of the first chapter of that journey.”

To optimise the appeal of its virtual real estate, Sports Metaverse is partnering with LandWorks, a protocol developed by EnterDao. Their technology enables VR landowners to let their land permissionlessly, listing it for specific prices on which would-be tenants can make bids.

The technology used by Landworks has been in use for over a year, supporting rentals in the decentralised metaverse on Ethereum, Decentraland.  LandWorks’ technology has passed the tests of the acclaimed auditors Quantstamp and Omega.

EnterDao’s Co-Founder, Zhivko Todorov, said: “Especially for sports, virtual real estate is expected to have unprecedented potential as an instrument for branding and sponsoring. But to unlock this potential, the land needs to be tradable – that’s where we come in.
Our software uses NFT technology and smart contracts to extend existing Ethereum token standards and enable land leasing even for projects not using the standards, without the need for upgrade or migration.”

The first to invest in the Sports Metaverse land presale have been the leading sports stars with which it is partnering, including UFC mixed martial arts champion Amanda Nunes and former Premier League football stars Shaun Wright Philips and Jordan Stewart, along with numerous Web3 brands.

The land sale will begin in the Sports Metaverse on July 14th at 2:00 pm UK with the Gold Whitelist, and continue six hours later for the Silver Whitelist. The next day, July 15th, at 2:00 pm UK, the public sale will open to everyone. Land Purchasers will need a MetaMask wallet to buy land. Payment is in ETH.
