While Stade Français has already started in the NFT, it is now the RCT’s turn to launch in the form of collector tickets. It is through a press release that the Var club has explained the entire process as well as the functioning of these non-fungible tokens.
”Rugby Club Toulonnais, one of the main clubs in the TOP 14 and three times European champion, is launching its first NFT drop, the challenge of which is to allow its fans to keep a digital memory of their presence at the Mayol stadium.
RCT fans will be the first to keep an everlasting and everlasting digital memory of the season, as a piece of the club’s Rouge et Noir legacy. They will therefore be forerunners in French sport as supporters owning NFTs.
Through this initiative, RCT uses the latest technological advances to bring its supporters, especially those most passionate about the new generation of the web (Web 3), closer to its players and create closeness, participation and gratification.
A first NFT drop dedicated to supporters with outstanding benefits
This first collection called “RCT for eternity” is a way for every fan to immortalize their visit to the stadium and their presence at an event. Thanks to an NFT (unique digital collectible) in the form of a commemorative card with an original design that he owns.
For holders of these NFTs, owning an asset from the “RCT for eternity” collection also means becoming part of a privileged community, enjoying a galaxy of benefits throughout the season.
Members of this new community will be invited into a private digital space and will be the first to benefit from future club activations in terms of NFTs and experiences in the Metaverse, the web of the future.
NFTs will therefore be an innovative way to serve the RCT fan experience, to bring fans closer to players and offer them unique experiences.
Different levels of rarity at the service of the fan experience
Rugby Club Toulonnais therefore wishes to raise awareness in its communities by providing them with the tools to become pioneers of Web3, through 2 ranges of collector’s tickets:
NFT Rouge: every fan present in the stadium will be able to buy this free collector’s ticket and discover the associated benefits. (3 categories of Red NFT: Bronze – Silver – Gold)
NFT Noir: premium collector’s card priced at €5, offering even more outstanding benefits. (3 categories of Black NFT: Bronze – Silver – Gold)
Finally, from February, a new class of NFTs will emerge: the “Player of the Month” of Rugby Club Toulonnais.
At the end of the season, an unforgettable experience will reward supporters who have completed their “RCT for Eternity” collection by acquiring all NFT Rouge or Noir.
