The Future of Football
BCF23: Football Manager intends to be more than a simple game, building a sports and entertainment metaverse around its community.
During Phase 2 of the project, users will be able to purchase lands. On these lands, starting as dirt fields, users will be able to build and grow practice facilities, training centers, stadiums, and in time MetaSports complexes.
Fields will have upgrade options, like planting grass, installing equipment, and vendor booths to sell team merchandise, with all the necessary tools to make your MetaSports complex, hosting practices, matches, tournaments (or even shows, and all sorts of entertainment activities) monetizing their ownership.
The lands will also give faster development of players from training, home field advantages, extra earnings from hosting/renting their fields, and more.
The MetaSports complexes allow BCF23: Football Manager to be more than just a fantasy football game, but a sports and entertainment metaverse, where users can compete, be entertained, and earn from their NFT ownership.
