Liverpool FC Auctions Official NFTs on Sotheby’s

The legendary Liverpool FC will release its first official set of NFTs with the help of Sotheby’s. From March 30 to April 1, Sotheby’s will be selling NFTs from the new “LFC Heroes Club” collection at its metaverse auction house.

According to Sotheby’s, these NFTs will be split into two categories: “Hero” and “Legendary”. The limited-edition “LFC Hero” NFTs will feature an LFC player or manager Jürgen Klopp. Sotheby’s will use an algorithm to determine which traits appear on each LFC Hero NFT.

While each LFC Hero NFT has unique characteristics, not all of them have the same rarity rankings. In fact, there will be three rarity levels: “Match Mode”, “Fresh Mode” and “Super Mode”. Of these three, “Match Mode” is the most common and “Super Mode” the most exclusive.

Buyers do not know who is on their LFC Hero NFT until it appears in their crypto wallet. Anyone can mint an LFT Hero NFT coin for $75 per token.

LFC fans wanting the rarest of rare NFTs may be more interested in Sotheby’s “Legendary” LFC auction. This set of 24 one-on-one NFTs features one LFC player or Jürgen Klopp with incredibly rare “superpower” attributes.

These LFC NFTs not only serve as digital collectibles, but also give fans exclusive access to their favorite football team. Some of the benefits of holding LFC NFTs include:

  • Reduced prices on LFC merchandise.
  • Access to an online fan club.
  • Meetings with LFC fans and team members.

A percentage of the sale for each “LFC Heroes Club” NFT goes to the LFC Foundation. According to Sotheby’s, 50 percent of “Legendary” sales and 10 percent of “Hero” sales will support Liverpool FC’s official charitable organization. An additional 10 percent of every “LFC Heroes Club” resale will help the LFC Foundation.

In line with its eco-friendly Red Way program, Liverpool FC chose the energy-efficient Polygon blockchain to mint its NFTs.

The Premier League could soon “kick off” an NFT market

Football fans are still waiting to hear which blockchain company will host the Premier League’s NFT market. According to recent reports, the English football league has already partnered with ConsenSys to release photo-style NFTs, but it’s unclear who will get the rights to video clips.

Some news articles suggest that Dapper Labs has the best chance of winning the rights to video-based Premier League NFTs. Headquartered in Canada, Dapper Labs is best known for developing the Flow blockchain, which hosts many professional sports NFT sites such as NBA Top Shot.

No matter which company the Premier League chooses to host its NFTs, it is expected to be one of the biggest deals for a pro-sports NFT platform. Estimates suggest the Premier League’s four-year NFT contract could be worth between $298 and $589 million.
