AC Milan

Italian football club AC Milan has signed a partnership deal with Money League, a AAA quality, Web 3.0 football game built on the Solana blockchain network,to be their NFT gaming partner.

AAA crypto games are usually backed by teams with legitimate game development experience or history of working or testing games ahead of their launch and have multiple gaming studio, blockchain technology and real-world business backgrounds.

Monkey League is a strategy-based football game, in which users build and manage their own dream team of at least six Monkey Player NFT. The key NFT players will be striker, midfielder, defender and goalkeeper. These NFT players will compete against real players and climb the league ranks.

The NFT game economy is centred around an in-game currency called Monkey Bucks ($MBS) and in-game assets that hold value in and out of the game. The strategic and design partnership between Monkey League and AC Milan includes creating exclusive NFT game assets, wearables, special game tournaments, co-marketing events and a host of other exciting initiatives such as club players play-testing the game.

This partnership allows AC Milan to strengthen its positioning in the field of digital innovation and has become the first football club to partner with Monkey League.The deal also encompasses Monkey League working closely with the Italian champions to launch a new collection of branded AC Milan NFT game assets, including new Monkey Players skins and stadia.

The first and more exclusive batch will be auctioned on October 06, 2022 on Magic Eden, with the NFT going to the highest bidders. Some of the most sought-after AC Milan Monkey Players to be auctioned will come with physical AC Milan jerseys signed by the entire club.

Besides, Monkey League will launch its initial Monkey Player NFT breeding season, in partnership with AC Milan, where AC Milan-branded assets can come out randomly through the breeding process. There will also be additional NFT available, including in-game stadia and land.

This partnership with AC Milan marks a significant new growth phase for the whole Monkey League community and aligns with the mission of Monkey League to bridge Web 2.0 and Web 3.0.

For AC Milan, the partnership with Monkey League is part of a wider Web 3.0 strategy that sees the club working with experts to create unique digital experiences for its fans, which aims to give them more access, more ownership and bring them even closer to their favourite club.

The AC Milan-Monkey League partnership will also involve AC Milan sponsoring a number of high-profile Monkey League e-sports tournaments that will bring together the game’s best players from all over the world to play in and the winner will take home exclusive rewards.

There will also be a plethora of promotions, with prizes including VIP match tickets to some of the biggest games at Milan’s legendary San Siro Stadium and signed AC Milan shirts and other gear.
