What is the OKX Collective

In February, OKX unveiled its partnership with Manchester City Football Stars Jack Grealish, Rúben Dias, İlkay Gündoğan, and Alex Greenwood, introducing the OKX Collective, an immersive metaverse experience created specifically for fans, enabling them to engage in Web3 experiences and access exclusive content from those Manchester City players. 

When visiting the OKX Collective, fans can expect a VIP experience tailored to each player’s playing style and interests. This includes exclusive training content, music, and NFT-based digital experiences, providing a truly memorable and engaging encounter with their favorite football stars in the virtual realm.

This collaboration also sees OKX as the official training kit partner for Manchester City during the 2022/23 season.

“İlkay is an incredible football mind, and this chance to benefit from his expert knowledge in an interactive virtual environment provides a glimpse into how Web3 stands to overhaul the ways we connect and interact in the future.”

Visitors to the OKX Collective can enjoy special experiences tailored to each footballer’s playing style and interests. These include exclusive training content, music, and NFT-based digital experiences.
