Sports in the Metaverse

Notably, the integration of sports into the Metaverse started in Q3-Q4 2021 and continued into the current quarter.

The latter allows users to trade NFTs, buy and develop land, interact with “iconic sportspeople in 3D,” and visit stadiums in the virtual world. “For the first time in history, the biggest sports stars, brands, and clubs are together in one place,” read the announcement. Companies like Sony, Doom, Playstation Home, and Nvidia facilitated the launch.
