This strategic and design partnership between Monkeyleague and AC Milan will lead to the creation of exclusive Rossoneri-branded NFT game assets, wearables, special game tournaments, co-marketing events, and other exciting initiatives that will be created in the course of the partnership.
As part of the deed, Monkeyleague will work alongside AC Milan to launch a new collection of branded AC Milan NFT game assets. This will include MonkeyPlayers, skins and stadiums. In the publication released by AC Milan, the first and more exclusive batch is slated to be auctioned on the 6th of October 2022 on the Solana-based NFT marketplace Magic Eden. The mode of the auction will be by bidding as NFTs will go to the highest bidders. Some of the most sought-after AC Milan Monkeyplayers that will be auctioned will come with signed physical AC Milan jerseys.
Still, on this partnership, Monkeyleauge will launch its debut Monkeyplayer NFT breeding season where AC Milan branded assets can come out through the breeding process randomly. Additional NFTs such as in-game stadiums will also be available.
