With digital trading cards minted on Chiliz Chain, players can create dream teams and simulate leading them in Ligue 1. Coach Ligue 1’s blockchain tech infusion ensures cards stay valuable, making collecting fun for fans and protecting the league’s intellectual property.

Alex Dreyfus, CEO of Chiliz, and Charlie Guillemot, Co-Founder and CEO of Unagi, are excited about the partnership, seeing it as a chance to revolutionize fan engagement globally. 

Martin Jaglin, Director of Digital Growth at LFP Media, agrees, stating that the partnership sets a new standard for leagues engaging with fans through digital assets, ensuring LFP Media stays at the forefront of digital sports entertainment.
