The #GSTS2022 had all the hallmarks of pioneering a new and innovative way to host virtual events in a post-pandemic world as it included seven expo pavilions, focusing on the major sports tech trends, including: fan experience, smart stadiums, performance analytics, and specifically showcasing NFT and Metavese solutions with over 120 startups. Additionally, participants had the chance to experience a groundbreaking built-in simulator presenting the sports metaverse experience for sports brands, clubs, and fans - the very first of its kind.
The Hype and Sporte Agency Partnership was born when last year, Sports Agency joined an elite group of 32 sports organizations covering 14 countries and 10 sports as part of the HYPE’s Global Virtual Accelerator 2.0 (GVA2.0) - an international innovation pitch competition that offers some of the top sports tech startups the chance to secure pilot programs and other commercial collaborations with many of the brand partners involved. Over 1,400 startups applied for the program out of which, only a few were handpicked to lead HYPE’s journey to solve the sports industry’s real challenges in 2021.
Sports Agency is proud to have been selected to be one of these, having gone through a rigorous process with the involvement of HYPE’s partners, mentors, and other key stakeholders of the largest ecosystem in sports tech globally, the graduating startups including Sporte Agency was pleased to showcase their digital solutions, detail the role and impact that NFTs, tokens and the metaverse will have in the sports market for several years to come. It was an honor to work with and help some of the biggest names in the global sports industry navigate this blockchain space at the #GSTS22, and to present esteemed attendees with their complimentary personalized 3D NFT digital artwork by Sporte Agency.
