The Major League Soccer, the top professional soccer league in the United States, revealed today, Thursday, that it would release a series of four NFT art pieces.
The artwork will be inspired by two major soccer matches this weekend: the Portland Timbers vs. Los Angeles Galaxy on Saturday at 6:30 p.m. EST and the Seattle Sounders vs. Atlanta United on Sunday at 4:30 p.m. EST.
The NFT pieces for Major League Soccer will be made by street artists, one for each MLS team that participated in both matches and then sold on Bilski.
Mighty Short (Timbers), Aaron Kai (Galaxy), Kyler Martz (Sounders), and Paper Frank are the musicians (United). At Clubhouse, a live fight will be accompanied by an audio experience.
This is the first time the MLS has released NFTs that the League has sanctioned. Sorare developed Ethereum-based tokens depicting Major League Soccer players last year. It was, though, by a collaboration with the MLS Players Association rather than the League.
It’s worth noting that the NBA has participated in NFTs as part of its relationship with NBA Top Shots. Officially approved, MLB has used Topps NFT cards. Several NFL players have also earned NFTs via various platforms. The most recent addition is the Multiple Listing Service (MLS).
NFT is the most recent development of Major League Soccer.
The new NFT art series, according to Chris Schlosser, MLS SVP of media, is the latest iteration of Major League Soccer’s dedication to celebrating the sport’s creativity.
He claims that the live art competition and the new take on a matchup poster contribute to the creation of a cultural moment that honors the League and the two great MLS matches.
Fans will also have the opportunity to buy limited-edition matchup posters known as NFTs. There will be a window to buy an infinite number of virtual signs during all games this weekend.
On the other hand, Major League Soccer said it was keeping an eye on the issue of NFTs and the world. According to the organization, a part of the proceeds will be used to reduce greenhouse emissions, rendering the partnership fully carbon-neutral.
