Delhi Capitals are the first team in the IPL to release digital memorabilia and NFTs.
FanCraze intends to build a community for fans to gather, utilize, play, and interact by merging NFTs, games, utilities, and real-world experiences.
While it is currently in early beta, FanCraze’s platform went live earlier this year in February and has gained a significant amount of fan involvement. FanCraze also inked an associate partnership with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) earlier this week along with its sponsorship with the Women’s T20 Challenge.
Vinod Bisht, Interim CEO, Delhi Capitals, said, “Delhi Capitals is proud to partner with FanCraze, and to launch the Indian cricket ecosystem into the next generation of sports-based assets and apps.
“We will be debuting the first Delhi Capitals’ NFTs in early June, and are really excited to give our fans the ability to own a piece of their favourite team and players. FanCraze has already shown us what is possible if one combines creators, cricketers, content, and commerce.”
“FanCraze is pioneering new innovations in sports-based digital collectibles with its thriving cricket NFT marketplace and games like FanCraze Flash. The partnership with Delhi Capitals will allow us to further accelerate our foray into play-to-earn gaming and to bring-to-market new offerings for Indian cricket fans,” stated, Anshum Bhambri, CEO of FanCraze.
FanCraze has also partnered with Cricket West Indies as well as cricket superstars like Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Muthiah Muralidaran, Jasprit Bumrah, Andre Russell, Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravichandran Ashwin and many more.
