“[The ultimate goal] of MetaSoccer] is to create a new generation of digital native football players and clubs, which in the coming years will achieve similar ratings to those of professional football leagues.  Ultimately, we aspire for the next Messi to be born in the metaverse and play on a platform like ours," says co-founder and COO, Patxi Barrios, in a press release from late November.

The team is looking to construct a footballing GameFi where users will be able to construct their own teams, use scouting processes to acquire viable assets like players, stadiums, and footballing infrastructure they can then trade. Users will interestingly also be able to bet on matches that will be viewed on a 2D match engine which is due to be completed in 2022 according to the roadmap.

“MetaSoccer has three key points to be the next milestone in the world of blockchain gaming: It is the first football metaverse with unique characteristics; it has a new economic model based on the token bonding curve that brings stability to the token; and as a studio, they have over six years of experience in developing video games," says KManuS88, a popular streamer backing the project in the press release.

The official roadmap is indeed ambitious but the project team appear to have given themselves ample time to construct the kind of game which is capable of capitalizing on a growing sports-orientated crypto community.
