Fan Controlled Football League is the latest idea in journalism. The league will use crypto and blockchain technology to create a fair, autonomous system that rewards fans who contribute content instead of corporate sponsors or advertising companies.
Fan Controlled Football (FCF), a professional American football league run by fans in the style of a video game, has secured $40 million in a Series A fundraising round headed by Animoca Brands and Delphi Digital. The funds will be utilized to create two new teams to the league in time for the start of the 2022 season, each themed after the NFT collections of the Bored Ape Yacht Club and Gutter Cat Gang.
The BAYC and GCG teams join two additional teams in the league, both of which are based after the Knights of Degen and Team 80KI NFT collections and were introduced to the league in October. 8,888 ‘Ballerz’ avatar NFTs will be minted for each of the four new teams, each with a unique mix of over 150 qualities and the option to be fitted up in limited-edition accessories. When buying Ballerz NFTs, fans who own NFTs from the BAYC or GCG collections will enjoy a 50% discount.
The FCF league is a concept centered on building a product that integrates competitive live sports, fantasy football, and live streaming video games into an unified fan engagement experience. It was first released in February 2021 with just four teams. During genuine American football games being played in a multi-purpose studio arena in Atlanta, spectators make real-time choices concerning team management, plays, and drafting.
The league’s first season in 2021 drew approximately 10 million Twitch viewers, making it not just one of the fastest-growing live sports channels on the site, but also one of the most popular sports applications in the App Store.
