Unique fan experiences

Challenge

  • The need to guarantee authenticity to prove that jerseys were game-worn
  • How to add value to jerseys to drive auction prices
  • Marketing campaigns had low engagement rates

Solution

The game-worn jerseys from the game against Paris Saint Germain were previously equipped with the collectID technology to ensure their authenticity and proof of game-worn. Each jersey gave its buyer a unique experience with the ESTAC team, such as, for example, a match against the team with their friends or the opportunity to watch a game from a jacuzzi inside the stadium. On top of that, each jersey gave its new owner access to player-specific content, a customized video message from that player to the buyer, and a digital signature from the player besides being physically signed by the player. These additional features, such as the digital signature and the video from the player, last for a lifetime on the jersey and are accessible with a quick and easy scan with the smartphone. The digital signatures come as NFTs tied to the ownership of the jersey, and the digital jersey can be used in the Metaverse.
