  • SportsIcon its platform uses Flow blockchain, created by Dapper Labs and designed specifically for NFTs
  • With exclusive interviews that document the sports journey of famous athletes, SportsIcon provides fans with exclusive sports content.
  • Among numerous benefits offered to SportsIcon Lion Club members are access to exclusive webinars with star athletes and tickets to real-world sporting events

SportsIcon is a non-fungible token (NFT) platform that has its sights set solely on sports – it focuses on bringing sports teams, athletes, and sporting organizations their own sports storefronts where they can curate their drops and sell them on an original sports platform. Additionally, SportsIcon users can follow the career highlights of many of the world’s most renowned athletes on the platform.

SportsIcon is partnered with some of the most influential tech people and star athletes

A number of prominent tech investors have invested in SportsIcon, including the CEO of NBA Top Shot Roham Gharegozlou and the founder of YouTube Chad Hurley. The company also works with famous athletes, including 13-year NFL veteran Michael Vick, accomplished soccer star Romelu Lukaku, and NBA Champion Andrew Bogut.

One of the world’s largest NFT platforms, NBA Top Shot, uses the same blockchain technology as SportsIcon. NFT platforms rely on the Flow blockchain to facilitate high-throughput transactions with low fees, and it provides near-instantaneous transfer speeds.

During training, fans can witness the highs and lows of an athlete’s journey as well as see their talent on display. Among the 27 digital collectibles in each athlete’s NFT collection will be nine distinct chapters, with each chapter featuring a more rare item.

The first one will cover the history of the legendary Mexican soccer club Pumas, which has won seven national championships. With this collection, fans of Pumas can purchase NFTs at the starting price of 1 FLOW.

Romelu Lukaku’s impressive soccer journey is the next digital collection to drop on SportsIcon. There are three levels of Pre-Mint passes for the Chelsea FC forward, each of which provides different benefits, such as recurring airdrops of special edition NFTs throughout each month in 2022.

Lion Club membership delivers exclusive perks

There is perhaps no single aspect of SportsIcon that can match the Lion Club in terms of excitement. Back in August, the company generated $1.4 million in Ethereum sales from 9,000 unique Lions sold for 0.04 ETH each in less than 14 hours.

As an exclusive member of SportsIcon, every Lion has access to exclusive tickets to sporting events, access to social channels, and more. As an example, SportsIcon club members got a chance to participate in a webinar and a Q&A session with NBA star Baron Davis that took place on October 28.

SportsIcon IDO set for the end of Q4 2021

SportsIcon will release a native utility token called ICONS via an upcoming IDO that will take place on a multi-chain DeFi protocol TrustPad. The IDO will represent a significant milestone for the community-focused sports platform and provide an opportunity for the public to purchase the ICONS token.

Scheduled for launch during Q4 2021, ICONS will give its holders the ability to buy NFTs at a discount and to receive preferential treatment when waiting for new digital drops. ICONS will also be used for farming purposes, for the creation of liquidity pools, and more.

The public sale of 30 million ICONS tokens will begin on 26th November 2021, at 11:00 AM UTC.
