For the past year, Unagi, the company behind Ultimate Champions, has signed partnership agreements with some of the best football teams in the world. The more teams represented, the more players users can add to their rosters.

According to Remi Pellerin, Managing Director of Unagi, the value of NFTs will change based on the actual performance of Arsenal FC players. The latter constitute a generation that is in perfect harmony with the fantasy game of Unagi. Users will have the opportunity to search for young talents, play with their favorite players and collect their digital cards.

The deal includes Ultimate Champions owning all rights to player images of Arsenal. He can thus use them in his game to form teams for free.

With this kind of agreement, it is rare to have more details on the financing. However, multi-brand advertising will likely be key for this one. Expect to see Ultimate Champions logos and graphics on the pitch side of the Emirates Stadium in the near future.

It also wants to introduce new sports to its ecosystem, including basketball and car racing. Ultimate Champions evolves in an increasingly competitive field. However, this is not the first soccer-based blockchain game. Sorare, Top, MetaSoccer and RealFevr also capitalized on the world’s most lucrative sport.
