Stryking Entertainment and popular Germany-based football club FC Bayern Munich have entered into a licensing partnership that will aim to produce and distribute digital collectibles. The digital collectibles will be based on FC Bayern players.

Meanwhile, FC Bayern Munich has emerged as one of the leading and highly successful football clubs all over the globe. It has a whopping fan following with 60 million followers only on social media. It has also amassed more than 2,90,000 official members. Till date, the club has managed to win national and international titles which include five-times Champions League.
Stryking has developed a fantasy sports challenge system for its Football-Stars game. The fantasy sports challenge will offer gameplay for digital collectibles. It will allow fans to use non-fungible token player cards of the real sports players in unique challenges to fight against one another.
With this, users can create virtual line-ups without any hassle with their respective player cards and play against the line ups of different users. The result will be calculated on the basis of live results or past data. The system will let users boost their players’ cards value and they can later sell it off as well.

“FC Bayern is one of the biggest football clubs in the world and their fans all around the globe should watch out for the first pre-sale with rare cards of their favourite stars coming soon. In the upcoming weeks and months, we will add more football licenses and other sports to the platform. Our vision is to build a truly global hub where sports fans meet to collect and trade, as well as play with their digital collectibles.”
