Here at Bored Ape Football Club (BAFC), we share a wealth of experience in business, crypto, technology and support for grassroots football.
The challenge with any new technology, cryptocurrency and NFTs included, is that there is a group of people that love and endorse it, but a group of people who are against it. Those against it are often swayed by limited information, huge negative media articles and some failed projects. We understand the fear and confusion of something new. In the crypto world we call this 'FUD,' Fear, uncertainty and doubt.
We, as BAFC, are here to help bring some new people into the crypto world by explaining some of the concepts and proving that these new technologies can be really powerful when coupled with real utility. Utility is a word used heavily in crypto, for investors it means to find owning something beneficial to them.
Our team sat together in early 2022 and spent a lot of time thinking about out how we could bring together a mix of uniqueness, solid foundations, a great community, real world utility and something really cool to bring into the Metaverse and web 3.0. It was then that BAFC was born.

Whatever happens, we are a DAO, our members have a key part to play in our success. We promise to bring a whole new way for fans to interact with football.
Bored Ape Football Club (BAFC)
Bored Ape Football Club (BAFC) is the biggest football related project on the XRPL!
BAFC is first a community DAO of 5000 NFTs. A DAO is a de-centralised project with it's community members at the centre of all decisions as they have influence through voting rights. From here you can check out the details of our NFTs here.
BAFC is opening a 250,000 square foot stadium in the Lux Lions Oasis, the stadium is surrounded by community owned plots of land which are now SOLD OUT and only available on the secondary market!
The stadium is due to be opened in Q1 of 2023, more details can be found here.
BAFC has released the xBAFC token to support the growth and future of the entire BAFC eco-system. The token has some use cases already but the intention is to get it working as a token for the BAFC stadium. More info can be found here.
BAFC plans to start organising national tournaments for youth grassroots football in the UK. By allowing youth teams the opportunity to play in big tournaments with academy teams it increases the opportunities for kids who may not otherwise get them. Then the winner of that tournament will be taken to the international stage in a cup in Dubai. These tournaments are due to start in 2023.
By working with and increasing our pool of seasoned professionals we are increasing our credibility as a team and a project. Check out who is involved here!
We're not here to play, we're here to win.
We're here to make a real difference to grassroots football, be a major long term project on the XRPL and be one of the first sports projects entering the Metaverse.

No, BAFC has no affiliation to Bored Ape Yacht Club, BAYC or YugaLabs. Holding our digital art or $BAFC tokens does not grant you access to the BAYC ecosystem.
We provide our own unique combinations of traits to make our NFTs unique and clear to identify.
Holding $BAFC tokens or our NFTs grants you member only benefits to the BAFC ecosystem, which includes the following:
NFTs (short for non-fungible tokens) are digital artwork items that you own. Proof of ownership is stored on a blockchain, a publicly available digital database.
A DAO (Decentralised Autonomous Organisation) is an organisation controlled by voting governance that is enforced by code, which is run and stored on the blockchain. This means it is controlled by the organisation members, and not influenced by any single party.
The company is fully controlled by members!
A blockchain is a publicly available digital database. It confirms movement of coins, ownership through wallets and cannot be re-written.
Blockchain is a system of recording information in a way that makes it difficult or impossible to change, hack, or cheat the system.
XRP is a cryptocurrency. Like Bitcoin but instead of being built on a blockchain, it is built on a hash-tree. Both are secure but instead of mining algorithms XRP validates transactions using node polls. This helps XRP to be much cheaper, faster and better for the environment!
You can screenshot an NFT. But you will never own it that way, you will never be able to reap the benefits of owning an NFT that way. Only NFT and token owners will be able to interact with our community - get one before they go up in value!
