LDN UTD has today announced a partnership with ARterra Labs, the esports and gaming focused platform for elevated fan engagement. The partnership will see ARterra Labs collaborate with LDN UTD to provide digital collectibles that serve to enhance fan engagement, educate fans on the technology, and add value to LDN UTD’s community wherever they are - in stream, online, and at the Camden Centre of Excellence.
Together, our goal is to boost fan engagement in an innovative way that rewards the most passionate fans of LDN UTD, as well as LDN UTD’s content creators who will also have the option to get intrinsically involved. Separately the community will have opportunities to create their own designs whereby the collectibles will relate to LDN UTD events, whether physical or online, and a future loyalty scheme.
Oliver Weingarten, CEO, LDN UTD: “Fan engagement is at the core of LDN UTD. We try to provide our community with innovative offerings and value, whilst aligning with organisations that align with our ethos and values. From my first meeting with ARterra it was evident they have the right mindset, understand the ecosystem and want to collaborate with us to provide the community with a unique Web3 offering. I’m excited to get started”.
Jon Werthen, COO, ARterra Labs: “We are thrilled to join LDN UTD as they grow their presence in the esports community, both in London and abroad. From their focus on path-to-pro, to community initiatives and their focus on building authentic relationships with their fans, we knew from the get-go that this would be an excellent partner. We look forward to working together with LDN UTD to engage and innovate alongside their community”.
