Backstage is proud to announce a partnership with Ansgar Fighting League (AFL), the largest MMA league in Spain and one of the most important in Europe. For the partnership, Backstage will help the AFL sell NFT tickets and experiences for their fight nights.

The first event where BKS NFT tickets will be for sale is 8th October, 2022. For the event, an exclusive collection of 30 BKS NFT tickets will be for sale on the BKS Marketplace. These NFT tickets will not only offer access to the arena, but also:

  • 1 limited edition NFT
  • 2 t-shirts
  • 1 lanyard
  • 1 special dinner
  • 1 signed póster
  • Fast entrance
  • Special front seat during the event and weight check
  • Memory picture of the event in the cage or with a fighter

These NFT tickets will provide a VIP-quality experience for guests and showcase the power of Backstage’s NFT technology. This will be the first of many AFL events where Backstage will have a presence.

Backstage Makes a Big Arrival in Spain

The AFL is Spain’s most popular MMA league, with almost 45 events held so far. The AFL is the only sports platform that has launched Spanish fighters to the famous and prestigious Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).

On the 8th of October, the AFL, together with the promoter La Batalla del Estrecho (LBE), will hold the “LBE Road to AFL” event in Algeciras, Cádiz at the Plaza de Toros de Algeciras, a legendary bullring that can hold 11,000+ spectators.

The fight card will be made up of great international athletes from Spain, Morocco, Italy, Colombia, Brazil and England. A total of 7 professional and 7 amateur mixed martial arts (MMA) fights will be held. The event will open doors at 6:00 p.m. and will begin at 7:00 p.m. with the amateur matchups.

This event offers Backstage the chance to truly become a mainstream name in Spain, as well as the wider world. The fights will be shown live through DAZN International, the largest global sports streaming platform. The Backstage logo will be on one column of the Octagon and also all posters and announcements, providing added exposure.

Backstage Is Already Bringing in Real Revenue & Expanding Rapidly

This partnership is another sign that Backstage is a serious business focused on powering the events industry with blockchain, NFT and metaverse technologies.

We’re already selling NFT tickets to events at Aspendos Theatre in Turkey, and our logo is all over buses in the country. With this AFL partnership, our business is now generating revenue in Spain, one of the world’s most important sports markets.

This is just the beginning. Backstage’s operation is developing and expanding quickly, and we have more deals lined up to serve as the NFT ticketing, crypto wallet and metaverse tech provider for various events business, including major sports teams and festival hosts.

We’re truly excited about the potential of this partnership with AFL. It’s a big step forward in our goal of becoming the top NFT ticket provider in the MMA world.

We look forward to seeing you all on October 8th!
