With the National Rugby League, a collective project of NFT » The economic and political newsletter of PACA

The National Rugby League is proud to announce two major partnerships with Bamg Sports and LegendaryPlays, two expert players in WEB 3.0, following its consultation launched last May.

Bamg Sports has created OVAL3, which becomes the official NFT card platform for TOP 14 and PRO D2 and will offer all rugby fans an offer of NFT cards to collect on all professional players from the 30 TOP 14 clubs and of PRO D2. Bamg Sports will also offer the first fantasy rugby game based on digital collections this winter.

LegendaryPlays, meanwhile, is becoming the official NFT Videos Platform for the TOP 14 and PRO D2 and will offer all rugby fans the opportunity to collect iconic video clips from the TOP 14 since 1998 and the PRO D2 since 2008. An experience gaming will also be offered this winter.

We believe in the appeal of NFTs to engage and expand the community of fans of our championships, in France and beyond. We are entering the digital world of NFTs with an offer that reflects our sport and its values: a flawless collective with the 30 professional clubs involved, solidarity in the redistribution of income and an enhanced fan experience, with two expert actors, Bamg Sports and LegendaryPlays. explains Emmanuel Eschalier, Director General of the LNR.

The NFT approach, desired by the Economic Development and Innovation Commission of the LNR at the origin of the consultation, is:

  • 100% collective?; the approach brings together the 30 professional clubs and the 1,466 professional players of TOP 14 and PRO D2.
  • 100% innovative; the focus was on the fan experience with an unprecedented offer and interaction services with fans. The objective is to become a world reference in the world of sport and rugby.

Designed in a secure and responsible approach, the NFTs of cards and videos are guaranteed by the Blockchain Tezos, a platform recognized for its more environmentally friendly approach. Bamg Sports and LegendaryPlays have also committed to compensation actions with the LNR to limit the carbon footprint.

These two platforms will also allow a possible enlargement of the catalog to other rugby competitions, thus giving them an international dimension.
