CollegeBall LLC (CollegeBall.io) Announces UNC Collective and Platform Launch, Student Athletes NIL Agreements, and 1st Drop Date
CollegeBall.io announces the launch of an innovative Web3 blockchain platform that allows fans of college sports to interact with their favorite college athletes in the virtual and real worlds
Bloomfield Hills, Michigan – 4/17/2022 – CollegeBall.io(https://www.collegeball.io/) announces the launch of our innovative Web3 NFT (non-fungible token) based college sports fan interaction platform that lives on the Polygon(https://polygon.technology/) blockchain.
The CollegeBall platform was created to allow fans to interact with their favorite college athletes while providing those same athletes an income now allowed by the recently passed NIL (Name, Image, Likeness) laws and rules by the NCAA and various states.
The CollegeBall platform consists of interaction points in the Web3 metaverse where fans can interact with their favorite athletes from their favorite college teams using their purchased NFTs as keys to the various benefits online and in real world events. Fans can chat with players on Discord (https://discord.gg/qUDCbJTybK/) and participate in group events on Twitter Spaces and podcasts as well. Certain NFTs based on unique rarity traits may serve multiple purposes. Aside from having a potential higher perceived associated $ value, certain tokens may allow owners to talk directly with athletes as well as having special events memorialized in personal videos or phone calls. Other benefits for the CollegeBall NFT community may include access to real world benefits like tailgates before games, signed memorabilia, tickets, and golf events.
CollegeBall shares 50% of all revenue with the partner athletes allowing these student-athletes to benefit from their involvement while also helping school’s draw elite talent in recruiting.
CollegeBall NFTs will be available for sale in the various “drops”* for the schools that are associated with the partner athletes. The NFTs will live and be traded on the Polygon blockchain. Polygon is not only one of the most popular blockchains but is most notably recognized for technical acuity and ability to manage sophisticated transaction/contracts based blockchains with high reliability.
CollegeBall.io Collective has recently announced its intention to execute the first NFT drop on 4/27/22. This will be a limited 750 token drop representing student athletes representing the University of North Carolina men’s football, and men’s and women’s Lacrosse programs. CollegeBall currently has 15 student athletes signed to NIL agreements representing the three sports programs.
CollegeBall will be making several announcements over the next 6 to 8 weeks regarding future drops, new programs and opportunities as well as its intention to execute a major token for football coming in August.
*drops– a term used to reflect a specific release date and time for a particular batch of NFT’s to be sold in an open market place on a first come first serve basis
