Verified Collection and Vissel Kobe to change the soccer game with Blockchain
Using blockchain technology, Vissel Kobe will launch a fan-driven tour for authenticated blockchain products for fans in the United States. The tour will start in 2019 and should take place throughout Southern California. There will be four friendly matches between Orange County SC, LAFC, Toronto and Columbus Crew. It will last from January 28th to February 4th.
Verified Collection will be the exclusive partner of Vissel Kobe and would be responsible for issuing a limited edition release kit. The release kit will consist of products that can be authenticated with blockchain technology. Not surprisingly, since the verified collection is a digital market that allows users to unlock and authenticate interactive experiences using physical and digital collector's items.
Dil Collection's CEO and founder Dil-Domine Jacobe Leonares said the upcoming tour will introduce blockchain technology to the world of football through the authentication of goods. In his words: "We are happy to have the opportunity to be the first propulsion sports tour that will show the TAG system of quantum fingerprints for the authentication of fan products to unlock interactive experiences on mobile devices, web and "console.
By integrating digital and physical assets into the sports world, both companies hope to introduce a new era of fan engagement in the global market. During the pre-sale, a limited version of the Vissel Kobe release kit will be released. This will include tour t-shirts, fan's scarf, etc.
All products will be verifiable on the blockchain and would cost $ 125 USD (MSRP $ 250) per kit. To show appreciation to Vissel Kobe fans, 25 shirts that have been signed by team members will be added to collectibles during presale. They will be randomly placed in different boxes.
Andres Iniesta, a legendary soccer player and member of the Vissel Kobe team, commented on the development. In his words:
Any fan interested in participating in the pre-sale limited edition can do so by visiting the verified collection website. They can also sign up for the fan tour that is bringing legendary players like Lukas Podolski, Andres Iniesta and David Villa to the United States for friendly matches against some of North America's most popular players.
Thanks to this partnership between Rakuten, Verified Collection and Vissel Kobe that has been mediated by Sports & Life, the involvement of global sports fans will move to a whole new level. To learn more about the tour, visit www.visselkobeusatour.com.
