The ‘Belgium Edition’ Urbanball Mystery Boxes will be available for purchase on June 24 at 3pm GST
After selling out its first drop on Binance NFT, Dubai-based sports fan engagement platform, Ex Sports is now set for its second drop on the platform, featuring ‘Belgium Edition’ street football NFTs.
The NFTs will be distributed through randomised mystery box packs and feature real-life street football tournament winners from Brussels and Antwerp.
A set of 10,000 NFTs will be minted, and each mystery box will cost only $25 (c. Dhs92), a 50 per cent reduction compared to the first drop.
The ‘Belgium Edition’ Urbanball Mystery Boxes will be available for purchase on June 24 at 3pm (GST)/ 11am (UTC) onward.
Major announcement! #EXSports is dropping its 2nd #Urbanball #NFT Collection, exclusively on #BinanceNFT, on the 24th June at 11am UTC
The 1st drop sold out, so make sure you’re able to get a mystery box early on this time! #nfts #nftcommunity #mysterybox #Streetfootball

Each mystery box will contain either a character or skill card NFT, both of which are required to play the Urbanball play-to-earn street football game, scheduled for release later this year.
The character cards feature a real life street football player, who has earned their place in the drop and game by winning Urbanball 1v1 ‘fightball’ tournaments in their home countries. These tournaments are hosted by 2x World Freestyle Football champion and social media sports icon Sean Garnier, whose character is also included in the drop as the top draw.
The skill cards consist of different football techniques, which can be used to enhance the performance of characters in the game.
The game will offer players a variety of PVP and PVE modes to compete in, with winners earning rewards that can be redeemed for real experiences. This first-of-its-kind concept is led by football champion and internet sensation Sean Garnier, who has 19 million social media followers and over two billion video views.
Beyond their use in the game, the NFTs also are digital collectables, offering real utility. Through a unique revenue model that sees the majority of each primary sale go to the athlete, it helps grow and develop their careers. Additionally, holders of the rarest NFTs receive exclusive rewards, such as meet and greets with athletes.
There are NFT drops planned every month in the run up to a full initial game offering, scheduled for December.
Each drop will feature new street football athletes from different countries who are winners of 1v1 fightball tournaments. The finals will happen at prime locations in Dubai, such as the Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa, in partnership with Emaar Entertainment.
