OneFootball raises $300 million, creates web3 JV with Animoca, Dapper
OneFootball raised a $300 million Series D funding round led by blockchain investor Liberty City Ventures.
In addition, One Football Labs, a web3 joint venture with blockchain gaming startup Animoca Brands and Dapper Labs, known for its sports NFT arrangements with the NBA and NFL, has been formed.
DAH, Quiet Capital, RIT Capital Partners, Senator Investment Group, and Alsara Investment Group are among the other investors in the round.
Arsenal, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Juventus, Liverpool, Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid, and Olympique de Marseille are all stockholders in the German sports platform, which has 100 million active members. When OneFootball acquired football streaming company Dugout in December 2020, the majority of the team joined.
As a result, the joint venture's mission is to help clubs, leagues, federations, and players create blockchain-based fan experiences.
OneFootball will carry tens of millions of football fans from Web2 to Web3 while maintaining the foundation of our platform – a devotion to the real-world fan, according to Lucas von Cranach, OneFootball's creator, and CEO.
