FIFA has announced the launch of FIFA+ Collect, a new platform that will enable football fans around the world to buy unique digital collectables, including key moments from big games and iconic FIFA World Cup and FIFA Women’s World Cup art and imagery.
FIFA+ Collect will be available later this month on FIFA+, the digital platform created to connect football fans across the globe more deeply with the game they love. FIFA+ provides access to live football matches, interactive games, news, tournament information, and original content. FIFA+ Collect will be available across all web and mobile devices and in three language editions (English, French, and Spanish), with additional languages to follow.
FIFA+ Collect is powered by Algorand, the official blockchain platform of FIFA and the technology of choice for over 2,000 global organisations, governments and digital-native decentralised finance applications. It’s a low-cost, carbon neutral blockchain accessible via multiple currencies and payment methods.
“Fandom is changing and football fans around the world engage with the game in new and exciting ways,” said FIFA Chief Business Officer Romy Gai. “This exciting announcement makes FIFA collectibles available to any football fan, democratising the ability to own a part of the FIFA World Cup. Just like sports memorabilia and stickers, this is an accessible opportunity for fans around the world to engage with their favourite players, moments and more on new platforms.”
