The Cardano Foundation has just made a deal with Epoch Sports and Merchandise to work together on technical stuff. Epoch Sports is a well-known sports brand in the US, and Merchandise is a complete apparel system. This group wants to make a special jersey with a unique design, and they will use blockchain technology to verify it.
At the 2023 World Lacrosse Men’s Championship, 6000 special Commemorative Jerseys were given out.
The special lacrosse jerseys have a small NFC patch from Epoch brand. This update has a digital jersey that is like a special token.
By using this technology, the clothes are linked to a secure blockchain, which shows that the jersey is real.
Epoch Sports and Merchandise will release the rest of the Commemorative Jerseys with NFC technology, along with connected digital collectibles, on the official web store for the 2023 World Lacrosse Championship.
The NFC patches added to the jerseys have two jobs. They also give customers access to special rewards and offers.
