This will allow foreign and local spectators to personally participate in the competition.

How it will work

The tournament will be held on the basis of the Decentraland metamir. The venue for tennis matches will be provided by the virtual arena Rod Laver Arena. And to unwind in between matches, spectators will be invited to visit restaurants or just stroll through the digital empire.

NFT types

The Australian Open will issue two types of tokens for fans. The first is the tickets themselves, which give a seat in the virtual stadium. In addition, fans will find a special collection “Art Ball NFT”. Basically these are lottery tickets with random numbers.
