The partnership is made on the grounds that Superblok will build a blockchain-powered soccer game, called FC Superstars and launch it in the real world.

Meaning, FC Superstars which is an online collectible dApp (Decentralized application) will enable users to build and grow football player token and hold them as digital assets.
