MetaSoccer has reached another milestone: the studio behind the game, Champion Games, was selected among over 1,500 startups as investment worthy by Wayra.
Wayra, Telefónica's open innovation initiative, is paving the way for Web3 to allow the company to gradually incorporate blockchain technology in its services.
Last week, on their premier Metaverse Day, Telefónica announced a series of Web3 project investments through Wayra. These initiatives will access new technologies and develop new services in the Web3 area, and Champion Games was presented as one of the promoted startups in the area.
Marc Cercós, CEO and co-founder of Champion Games and creator of MetaSoccer stated, “It is a privilege for us to have Wayra as an investor in our company. We hope that all of the knowledge and experience in telecommunications and innovation can help us consolidate our business.”
The new partnership is not only a financial one but also a way to open new doors to developing the soccer metaverse by creating new synergies. Marta Antunez, director of Wayra Barcelona, affirmed, “Play and earn is causing a new paradigm shift in the gaming industry. Using decentralized technologies opens up a new world of opportunities that will revolutionize the industry. Champion Games is taking advantage of this wave and created a Web3 game that can reach the mainstream audience. We are delighted to support this team of great professionals, and we are sure that great opportunities for collaboration can be opened through Telefónica and Movistar.”
We couldn’t be more excited about this new connection, which will surely strengthen MetaSoccer’s position as one of the Web3 games forging the future of the industry.
