OVAL3 brings NFTs to Major League Rugby

French web3 brand agrees partnership with Major League Rugby in North America.

Major League Rugby (MLR), North America’s top rugby league, has signed a partnership with French web3 brand OVAL3.

The partnership will offer fans the chance to compete in an exclusive NFT fantasy game and will complement OVAL3’s existing play that includes a recent partnership with the French National Rugby League, enabling you to build a team using players from both leagues.

OVAL3 chief executive Tony Bouquier said: “We are very proud to have been chosen by Major League Rugby. After the National Rugby League, this is the second league to join us, validating our concept and confirming the relevance of our project.

“Our ambition is to sign new leagues in the near future, in Europe but also on other continents, in order to offer a never seen and always richer experience.”

Rugby has been growing in popularity in North America, with MLR now into its sixth season, and that growth is expected to continue with the men’s and women’s Rugby World Cup to be held in the US in 2031 and 2033, respectively.

Major League Rugby chief executive Nic Benson said: “We are constantly looking for new ways to bring our great sport to an ever-growing audience and fully satisfy our long-standing fans.

“The partnership with OVAL3 is a perfect fit for this dual purpose and will position the MLR as one of the most progressive sports leagues in North America.”

The official MLR Fantasy NFT game will be available in mid-season 2023
