City Football Group’s Chief Marketing & Fan Experience Officer Nuria Tarré said: “Manchester City are continually exploring new and unique ways to engage with our global fanbase and aim to be at the forefront of the use of emerging technology to enhance fan experience. The metaverse and Web3 are part of our innovative technology strategy and provide an exciting opportunity as we continue to offer touchpoints for fans in this emerging space, with digital collectible drops and metaverse-based experiences launched in recent years by the club. By collaborating with OKX, we continue to deliver unique, creative and innovative activations; we hope our fans enjoy this latest instalment with OKX.”

OKX’s partnership with Manchester City began in March 2022, then expanded in July 2022 when OKX became the Club’s Official Training Kit Partner for the 2022/23 season. In June 2023, OKX was named the Club’s Official Sleeve Partner in a new multi-year agreement.

The partnership has introduced the brand to millions of football fans around the world through innovative Web3 experiences such as the OKX Collective, and the recently launched ‘my fabric‘ episodic campaign, featuring Manchester City’s OKX global brand ambassadors Jack Grealish, Rúben Dias, Alex Greenwood and Ederson.
