EA Sports, the developer of the popular soccer video game series, has partnered with well-known sporting goods manufacturer Nike.
Under the terms of the partnership, new games from EA Sports, including the successor to the iconic FIFA game EA SportsFC, will feature exclusive NFT items from sportswear manufacturer Nike. NFT will be developed by SWOOSH, a Nike-managed Web3 platform built on top of Polygon, the scalable Ethereum network.
It is worth noting that the football simulator from EA Sports is also a full-fledged esports discipline. You can follow the ups and downs of tournaments for this game with the help of a well-known betting company Parimatchin whose line you can always find quotes for important eSports events and make predictions for matches.
It is not yet known whether purchased NFT items will be available to players in EA Sports tournaments and how they will affect the performance of virtual athletes on the field. However, it is clear that in the upcoming tournaments on the simulator with the old name – FIFA, such innovations will not be available. For example, we are talking about the football simulation world championship, which is scheduled for August 2023. Quotes for the matches of this “event” will be available in the line of the Parimatch bookmaker, more details about which can be found linkwhere you can also read reviews about the company and its main advantages.
Returning to the EA Sports and Nike NFT partnership, both companies are looking forward to a long-term partnership. The addition of collectibles is just the beginning of the grandiose plans of gaming and sports leaders.
The Polygon blockchain network, which even before the announcement of its participation in the project from EA Sports and Nike, could boast of serious achievements in attracting new users, will also play an important role in this cooperation. For example, at the beginning of June, the total assets of Polygon were over $18 million, and the amount of assets related to DeFi protocols exceeded the $10 million mark.
