Luka Modrić NFT Collection is Here to Boss the Metaverse Midfield

Last Updated: July 20, 2023
The first-ever NFT collection celebrating the Croatia and Real Madrid legend and one of the best midfielder’s of this generation arrives on Ethernity chain.

In his 19 years as a professional footballer, Luka Modrić has done just about every last thing there is to do. As a winner of five domestic league titles, three domestic cup titles, a runner-up medal with 2018 Croatia in the FIFA World Cup, and the 2018 Ballon d’Or as the world’s best men’s player, there’s scarcely a mountain left for Real Madrid and Croatia’s “Lucky Luka” to climb.

In the physical world, anyway. And that’s what’s brought one of the foremost midfield maestro of this soccer generation to Ethernity for the first-ever Luka Modrić NFT collection.

Featuring art from Dutch animation studio Visual Lab, the set of four Modrić collectibles includes two virtual jerseys that are fully wearable in metaverse spaces like Sandbox.

Let’s meet the full starting lineup.

(1) Modrić: Submerse

The “Submerse” NFT builds on the concept ofModrić as a kid who had to overcome some deep circumstances and serious pressure to become one of the top stars of the world’s most popular game, including the Croatian War of Independence that broke out when he was just a five years old.

(2) Modrić: Median

The “Median” NFT captures the emotional color palette of every match. But it keeps one thing constant — Luka’s motor never slows down.

(3) Modrić: Metaverse Wearable Croatia Jersey

For the first time, Madridistas and fans of the Kockasti (“The Checkered Ones”) alike can take the Puppet Master’s famous No. 10 Croatia shirt into the many virtual worlds of the metaverse and outfit it on their virtual avatars.

(4) Modrić: Metaverse Wearable Jersey

Now that Luka is fully Team Ethernity, your virtual avatars can showcase their pride with a black, white, and gold getup custom-designed for this NFT drop.

The Luka Modrić NFT Collection goes live on Thursday, February 17 at 12 p.m. ET. To learn more about how you can get in the game, visit ethernity.io.
