PRESS RELEASE. Unagi is shifting the way sports fans interact with their favorite sports clubs through their innovative free-to-play and play-to-earn fantasy sports game: Ultimate Champions. Live since April 2022, the company has shaken the industry with several trailblazing successes including:
- Launching its fantasy football game with over 40 clubs, including the English Premier League powerhouse Arsenal FC
- Registering more than 20K active users in only 30 days
- Inking a pioneering deal with the EuroLeague, including 38 of the biggest basketball teams in Europe such as Real Madrid and Barcelona
The fantasy sports market is estimated to grow to USD 50bn by 2030 and is ripe for disruption. Gen Z consumers increasingly expect dynamic gameplay models, in-game ownership and a play-to-earn experience. Ultimate Champions offers the following advantages relative to traditional fantasy providers:
- Gameplay: The game leverages more than 50 data points per athlete per match to score the athletes in a holistic manner, rather than just looking at goals and assists
- Ownership: The game officially licenses digital cards hosted as NFTs on the Polygon blockchain allowing players to own, collect, and trade their favorite athlete’s card
- Play-To-Earn: The game rewards users with new NFTs and in-game currency, the CHAMP token, which they can use to buy, collect, and trade athletes on the marketplace
An innovative token to fuel the in-game economy

Ultimate Champions’ team is on a mission to reinvent fantasy sports. The new scoring methodology will be coupled with new game modes – Tournaments, to be released in August 2022, with the third gamemode, Clash, hinted to be released in Q4 2022. This will create new ways for fans to leverage their athlete NFTs within the game. You can find more information here.
