Sports

Transform global fan relationships through immersive,
interactive, and accessible Metaverse experiences

Sports organisations are letting their digital-native audiences down

There is undoubtedly a tremendous appetite amongst fans to engage with sports beyond the field. However, sports organisations remain entrenched in old ways, and slow to grasp the opportunities that digital experiences offer to engage the passion of fans. Live events, whether in-person or broadcast, remain largely inaccessible due to geographical restrictions or prohibitive paywalls. Meanwhile, 3rd party publishers or independent fan groups handle most of the sports entertainment or community experiences that are available.

The era of the Metaverse offers sports organisations a chance to regain control of fan relationships and adapt to the needs of digital-native, interaction-hungry audiences.

Sports in the Metaverse era

How the Metaverse can transform fan experiences

icon

Reach passionate fans around the world

Sports are global, and passion knows no borders. Metaverse experiences connect new and existing fans from all over the world in interactive virtual spaces where they can learn, shop, play and socialise in direct relationship with their favourite teams and fan communities.

Take ownership of fan relationships

Sports organisations are sustained by their fans, and owe it to them for the support to go both ways. Metaverse experiences allow sports organisations to provide fans with a dynamic range of engaging, playful, and uniquely tailored fan experiences, without relying on 3rd party platforms and publishers to mediate their relationship.

Transform the live event experience

In the Metaverse, virtual and physical worlds become blurred. This means distanced fans can experience live events more closely than ever before, while fans attending in person will find that their experience extends well beyond immediate physical space.

There is a lot more to learn about bringing sports into the Metaverse era

Metaverse experiences will be crucial to the long-term success of sports in a market of digital-native, interaction-hungry fans. This means knowing how to harness new and engaging ways of cultivating existing fan relationships as well as reaching out to new global audiences.
