2 min

The relationship in the middle of football and  tech has attained a new height after , and football clubs filed for a co-owned Metaverse network . The development manifested after well known trademark lawyer Mike Kondoudis revealed the move via his Twitter page. The lawyer revealed that the app  for the Metaverse network by the two clubs is for international classes 9 and 41.

As reported by Kondoudis, the two clubs intend to allow fans to explore numerous club-related products in the Metaverse network. With the Class 9 trademark, the clubs will initiate an electronic wallet and applications for managing crypto-related transactions using the blockchain tech. Class 41, on the other hand, will cater for the clubs’ virtual reality games, interactive entertainment, and other virtual reality-related experiences. 

This isn’t the 1st attempt of FC Barcelona into crypto-related projects. Recall that around June 2020, FC Barcelona, in partnership with, floated its fan crypto token ($BAR) on the platform. The Chiliz platform is a prominent blockchain-oriented outlet for sports and entertainment bodies. A year ago, through a collaboration with Ownix, an non-fungible token(NFT)  marketplace, the club launched an non-fungible token(NFT)  collection of some iconic moments.

The club’s president, Joan Laporta, stated the collection as a privilege for fans to access a part of the club’s legacy. Nonetheless, the deal failed to live up to expectations after charges of Sexual assault and forgery were raised against Moshe Hogeg, an of Ownix. Barcelona was forced to work out of the deal due to these allegations against the club. As part of its of the cryptocurrency space, early this year, the club almost signed a shirt sponsorship deal with Polkadot.

In the meantime, the joint filing for a Metaverse network Trademark by FC Barcelona and Real is surprising. The two clubs are major rivals both domestically and in European competition. This rivalry isn’t limited to sporting activities alone, as the two clubs represent different political movements. FC Barcelona is a major face of the Catatonia in Spain. On the flip side, Madrid reflects the values of Spain’s royal family. 

Catalonia has been pushing for secession from Spain for a long time. FC Barcelona is in the middle of of the separatist movement, and the club has overtly offered a strong voice for the region’s secession. Consequently, at a time, the club attracted a fine from UEFA for showing solidarity with the region during a Champions match.

Lastly, the two teams will be looking to kickstart their La Liga strongly this weekend. For Madrid, the club will intend to build on its last season after clinching domestic and the UEFA Champions League title. Simultaneously, FC Barcelona will seek to banish the memories of the departure of its legend, Lionel Messi. The club ended trophyless last season, which heavily reflects the impact of Lionel Messi.
