The groundbreaking partnership aims to bring innovation in both sport and technology. We do things differently in sport, and the NEAR community is doing the same in the blockchain space.

From its foundation, SailGP has focused on providing world-class sporting entertainment to fans, with a purpose-driven agenda to drive real change in the world. Similarly, NEAR, unlike other blockchains, has been built from the ground up to be the easiest in the world for both developers and end-users, driving inclusivity to make web3 accessible for all.

The shared values between the SailGP and NEAR communities are the bedrock of our relationship, and promote original and innovative thinking in both sport and technology - all with a fan-first approach in mind.

Our shared goals:

  • A world-first initiative to bring fans closer to sport than ever before, making the ownership of a SailGP Team available to anyone through a DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization).
  • Unique opportunities to own exclusive SailGP content through NFT (Non-Fungible Token) campaigns.
  • A fan-centric approach to bring together sports and technology communities, building strong relationships between both worlds.

Once the foundations are built, SailGP will enhance the sports industry to deliver fan-focused growth and development on NEAR.

We will strive to be an innovator in the fan engagement space while staying true to the cause of a clean, sustainable and inclusive future.

The SailGP x NEAR DAO team will give all fans the chance to own a SailGP Team and make decisions on how the Team is run - a groundbreaking initiative focused on community and fandom power.
