Introducing the FC Shakhtar Fanverse
April 4 sees the launch of the FC Shakhtar Fanverse — a partnership between Binance and one of Ukraine’s most successful football clubs.
The Match Prediction Challenge allows fans to show off their knowledge and make informed judgements on the outcome of FC Shakhtar’s games.
For 12 of the team’s matches from April to June 2023, we’ll be providing up to $36,000 in rewards to be shared amongst those taking part, as well as unique fan experiences such as VIP match tickets and meetings with FC Shakhtar players.
FC Shakhtar is the first partner to be working with Binance Web3 Services (BWS) — a new initiative we’re making accessible to any organization or brand seeking assistance in making the leap from Web2 to Web3.
Read on to find out everything you need to know about Binance’s new partnership with one of Ukraine’s top football teams.
Binance is proud to be partnering with Shakhtar, one of Ukrainian football’s most prestigious clubs. Founded in 1936, FC Shakhtar has won the Ukrainian Premier League and the Ukrainian Cup 13 times each.
The club has also had success in Europe, reaching the Champions League quarter-finals and winning the UEFA Cup in 2009 — making it the first club in independent Ukraine to do so.
Now, thanks to Binance Fan Token and Binance Web3 Services, the club is ready to take on its next challenge — connecting with its fans across the world through Web3 and the FC Shakhtar Fanverse.
