FIFA’s Digital Collectibles Platform announced VIP Giveaways to attend FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022
Win a once-in-a-lifetime VIP trip to watch the quarterfinal match of the FIFA World Cup™ 2022 live in Doha, Qatar. Four lucky football fans stand a chance to win the grand prize worth over $30,000 each, which includes a five days/four night stay at a luxurious five-star hotel from December 7-11, 2022.
FIFA+ Collect, the official digital collectibles platform of FIFA+, has recently announced these special VIP experience giveaways under its “Own It, Win It, Live It” program. Launched in April of this year, FIFA+ is a free video streaming service by FIFA, the global governing body of football.
In September 2022, FIFA+ launched FIFA+ Collect, a digital collectibles platform that allows fans to own, collect, and trade official digital collectibles. The platform runs on Algorand, a carbon-neutral blockchain protocol, that became the official blockchain platform of FIFA back in May 2022.
The FIFA+ Collect Marketplace went live on September 22, 2022, with its inaugural “Genesis Drop” collection containing NFTs of iconic highlights from FIFA’s 92-year history. Currently, there are two collections (Genesis Drop & FIFA Archive Drop) available for purchase for just $4.99, and each pack of collectibles in a collection includes three random highlights.
