Animoca Brands to title sponsor two Grands Prix in 2022 and 2023

Wednesday, 8 June 2022

The MotoGP™ partner and leader in blockchain gaming will take top billing at Aragon and Australia in 2022, and two more events next season.

Dorna Sports and Animoca Brands, the company advancing digital property rights for gaming and the metaverse, announced today that Animoca Brands will be the title sponsor of two Grands Prix in 2022 and 2023. This season, Animoca Brands will take top billing at the Grand Prix of Aragon and the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix. The two events will be officially named the Gran Premio Animoca Brands de Aragón and the Animoca Brands Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix, respectively.

Animoca Brands became a partner of MotoGP™ in 2019, when it gained the rights to develop the first NFTs based on MotoGP™, the world’s fastest motorcycle racing championship. The two companies are producing MotoGP™ Ignition, a competitive management and collectibles game platform based on MotoGP™ and that is part of the REVV Motorsport ecosystem of play & earn games.


MotoGP™ Ignition, the official MotoGP™ blockchain game, will deliver branded experiences centred around limited edition NFTs. The game provides a digital collectibles platform where users buy and sell cards of varying rarity, as well as a card-based fantasy sports game and a sophisticated racing manager game. The game’s racing management experience will offer the bikes, riders, and champions of MotoGP™ as NFT collectibles that players use to assemble their racing teams to compete against other players.

MotoGP™ Ignition’s NFT collection and marketplace are available now and the card and manager games are expected to be available this year.
