BCL Americas strikes deal with IDG for special NFTs

Miami (USA) – Basketball Champions League Americas (BCLA) and International Digital Group (IDG) have joined forces to give fans a new and unique way to engage with the league. As part of a Sponsorship and Licensing Agreement deal, the parties will develop Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) as a digital collectible for fans featuring the BCL Americas.

The NFTs will highlight memorable moments from the BCL Americas archives and include assets of current participating clubs such as Flamengo, Minas and Sao Paulo. Fans can purchase the BCLA NFTs on the IDG platform and NFT holders will have exclusive access to memorabilia, raffles, tickets for the Final 8 and other experiences that money just cannot buy. NFTs are now available at www.idgnft.com

The deal is part of BCL Americas' continued efforts to drive innovation and elevate the competition and its brand. The partnership with IDG also aims to deepen fan engagement opportunities for the league and inject the BCLA brand into the digital disposition.


"This partnership is a pivot moment for the regional office in the Americas. IDG and BCL Americas will elevate fans experiences and, most importantly, put innovation in the forefront agenda of our club league. BCL Americas continues to innovate, and this is a tremendous strategic milestone for us. I'm very excited with the future and what this partnership will do for both FIBA and IDG," said Carlos Alves, FIBA Executive Director Americas.
