“The metaverse itself is a huge opportunity for the world to add a new layer of human interaction to society. For sports specifically, it could create access points and virtual experiences for new audiences. This is not mutually exclusive with the joy of physical interaction of sports, but rather an extension that will allow for more inclusion across the industry” – Web3 Studio Report
Raj Rajkotia shared how LootMogul is strategically positioned in the sports metaverse experience landscape – “As a leader in Sports Centric metaverse created by athletes for athletes, LootMogul’s goal is to provide tools to both athletes and sports brands for engaging with fans in the most simplistic manner without the complexities of blockchain and wallets, while ensuring full transparency and accountability. Web 2.5 approach to onboard sports fans into Web 3.0 and metaverse economy athletes, brands, and tangible benefits is a key differentiator for LootMogul.”
In addition, Web Studios stated “We expect the economic value of the metaverse sports space to grow exponentially over the next 10 years. This is fueled by a rapidly growing consumer interest in new ways to engage with their favorite sports and teams, as well as sports stars’ positive attitudes toward new forms of monetizing their audiences. Big sports brands and investors recognize the potential that metaverse technologies bring to the areas of consumer engagement, retention, and monetization in sports and invest heavily in the space. While the metaverse sports space is still subject to high societal, legal, and technical uncertainty – we forecast the metaverse sports space may generate more than $80bn by 2030.”
