  • Chiliz boasts of partnerships with over 100 leading sporting organizations worldwide.

Chiliz, the leading blockchain provider for the sports and entertainment industry, has made yet another strategic move by partnering with K-League, South Korea’s professional football league.

Implication of Chiliz Partnership with K-League

This collaboration promises to unlock a plethora of opportunities for millions of fans to interact and immerse themselves in the league’s action, including unprecedented access to officially authenticated game-scored balls.

Central to this strategic alliance is the integration of ‘K League Fantasy’ into the Chiliz Chain ecosystem. ‘K League Fantasy’ serves as the league’s official fantasy game, empowering fans to craft their dream lineups by collecting player cards and competing against fellow enthusiasts based on the performance of their chosen players. This integration not only enhances the fan experience but also marks a huge step in leveraging blockchain technology to deepen fan engagement within the realm of sports.

The Chiliz Chain, often hailed as the sports blockchain, stands as the premier layer-1 protocol tailored to cater to the unique requirements of the sports and entertainment industries. Through this partnership, the K League will join an esteemed cohort of global sports entities within the Chiliz Chain ecosystem.

Moreover, the partnership between Chiliz and K-League extends beyond the realm of fan engagement. K-League has become the first sports organization to join the Chiliz Chain as a node validator. This means that K-League will play an important role in upholding the network’s integrity, security, and governance by verifying transactions and participating in decision-making processes on the chain.

Yeonsang Cho, General Secretary of the K League, expressed his enthusiasm for the partnership, stating, “We’re aware of the multiple ways that Web3 technology can help us improve our offering. We are delighted to be partnering with the pioneers and leaders in this space, and look forward to working together to enhance the experience of our fans and grow our brand globally.”

Alexandre Dreyfus, Founder and CEO of Chiliz, echoed Cho’s sentiments, noting, “Korea has been a key country for us since the foundation of Chiliz. It’s grown a lot in recent years, but we believe that it has the potential to grow even more, and we’re delighted to contribute to this growth through this strategic partnership that will allow the league to reach a much wider and global audience.”

Chiliz Expanding Global Reach

Chiliz, with over six years of experience in the industry, boasts partnerships with over 100 leading sporting organizations worldwide, including heavyweights like UEFA Champions League winners Manchester City, FC Barcelona, Tottenham Hotspur, and UFC (mixed martial arts). 

Furthermore, Chiliz’s recent integration of Rarible’s innovative protocol into the Chiliz Chain suggests a new era for Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) marketplaces and digital collectibles. This integration empowers developers to create custom NFT marketplaces on the Chiliz Chain, enhancing the accessibility and functionality of digital collectibles within the sports domain.

In addition to its partnership with the K-League, Chiliz has also cemented its presence as an official partner of Lega Serie A, Italy’s top-tier professional football league, offering fans the opportunity to bid for authenticated match-used balls through blockchain technology.
