Global design firm Populous and esports organization Kansas City Pioneers have partnered to introduce “The Arena,” a five-part NFT collection. The Arena is the first NFT collection created through an esports team and design firm partnership.
The collection is designed by Populous and follows a character along the path to a Pioneers-influenced virtual esports arena. This journey provides fans access into a theoretical futuristic “road to the venue,” the arena competition seating bowl and a behind-the-scenes Pioneers elite team training area.
“We couldn’t be more excited to launch our first-ever NFT collection, The Arena,” said Mark Josey, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of the Kansas City Pioneers. “Partnering with Populous, a global design firm who connects people to places in powerful, transformative ways, was instrumental in helping bring that exact vision in esport and gaming to life. As leaders of the next generation of consumers, we know that we must meet our fans and communities where they are today and in the future. This incredible collection will do just that in providing access to authentic, personalized experiences, and build connections to a community here and beyond.”
The Arena tokens will be released on a rolling basis. They will be available on OpenSea for purchase.
