The release of a fantasy golf game has been announced as a partnership between the PGA Tour and DraftKings has been formalized. The release date would be in the first week of March.
Days ago we have seen several announcements linked to blockchain-based sports game launches along with the use of NFTs as is the case of UFC Fighting Championship, or NFL American Football League.
On this occasion, it is linked to the sport of golf. In this way, DraftKings announced officially announced the launch of its new project with the aim of expanding the Reignmakers digital collectibles franchise, and offer a new immersive experience focusing on the PGA Tour.
DraftKings is one of the leading ‘Daily Fantasy Sports’ firms in the world. Their goal is to make sports better, as well as to get the best fans and bring them closer to the game. Their platform allows sports betting through the use of collectible cards.
By linking PGA Tour with Draftkings, they have agreed to launch a new iteration of the digital card game saga. Reignmakers PGA TOUR is a fantasy golf game based on digital cards, offering golf fans opportunities to collect digital golf cards, where they can find the best players in history.
With this new release, it becomes the third Reignmakers edition released by DraftKings, having previously released the Reignmakers Football and Reignmakers UFC versions.
Thus, DraftKings will launch this new experience in March, continuing its format from previous NFT games. These collectible digital cards will be minted through Polygon’s blockchain, where they can also be traded at a later date.
One of the features of the game is that users will get points based on the performance of players in real life. To do this, users will make their formations by exchanging NFTs with each other, which are based on the world’s top athletes.
Norb Gambuzza, vice president of media and gaming for the PGA Tour, said the PGA Tour is always looking for new ways to bring fans closer to golf, and this time DraftKings has been the best option to achieve those goals.
In this sense, he went on to mention that this project is a new development in terms of their relationship, and they are eager to introduce fans to a new way of interacting with both the sport and the athletes.
Matt Kalish, co-founder of DraftKings, said that Web3 has brought a new level of engagement from sports fans around the world, and in this regard DraftKings has been at the forefront of innovation with NFT digital cards for use in the games they have developed.
Reignmakers PGA Tour will launch a premium NFT Greens Pass on the first day of March, which will provide exclusive access, as well as various rewards throughout the season for those users who obtain the pass.
The first official phase of the Reignmakers PGA Tour is scheduled for March 6 on the DraftKings marketplace. Fans will be able to build a collection of digital golf cards at different levels through drops, auctions, as well as the DraftKings marketplace.
