The official soccer league in the USA– Major League Soccer– signed “Striker” which is a Bored Ape NFT as a virtual player.

Further Details on the Bored Ape Deal

Major League Soccer recently announced the signing of a Bored Ape NFT– Striker– as an athlete. A team known as ge3 conducted the exclusive signing of the deal.

Furthermore, by signing this deal, the team aims to partake in the evolving interest the world of sports has been taking in NFTs for some years now.

The signed Bored Ape NFT previously known as Bored Ape #6045 is now a virtual athlete.

The team at Get Engaged made a huge investment in procuring the Bored Ape NFT. The team purchased the NFT for 100 ETH giving the past owners of the NFT a large profit since they bought it for just 8.45 ETH in 2021.

The first virtual debut of the striker will take place on the 10th of August at the Major League Soccer All-Star game as the latest All-Star.

Major League Soccer Is Promoting Its Presence In the NFT Market

This is not the first involvement of Major League Soccer with NFTs. 

The league made its first NFT debut in May 2021 after which it partnered with Sorare– a sports-based NFT marketplace– to launch a blockchain fantasy competition.

Also, one of the famous backers in the league– Steve Curry– who is also a four-time MBA champion has participated in team-based projects like Top Shot and team-centric projects.


NFTs are gradually gaining popularity in the sports world as more investments and community-building opportunities arise. 

Recently, the NFL created its blockchain game and emphasized NFTs a lot during the Super Bowl.

As NFTs continue to advance in the sports world, this is a good opportunity for artists to involve themselves in projects involving NFTs and earn huge profits.
