The metaverse is becoming increasingly popular for a variety of digital activities. Despite big companies shutting down their plans for the sector, the digital playground is still the go-to destination for all things virtual, even for soccer courses from some of the best players and teams in the world. 

After profound success with its first metaverse soccer training session with Ruben Dias, OKX has released its second soccer masterclass, this time with Manchester City’s captain, Ilkay Gundogan.

Make Your Play

OKX, one of the leading cryptocurrency exchanges in the world, has launched an immersive metaverse experience for soccer fans called Make Your Play. The initiative will feature Gundogan stepping into the OKX Collective metaverse to guide passionate soccer players into becoming a dominating force in the midfield. 


Gundogan’s soccer class will help fans through pre-planned drills and showcase the midfielder’s in-game decision-making processes and love for coaching. 

İlkay Gündoğan shared in a press release:

The beauty of our game is in the tactics. As someone who loves coaching and highlighting the tactical skills that are needed to win, it is hugely exciting to be able to share what I know in an arena like the OKX metaverse.”

The OKX collective is the cryptocurrency exchange’s virtual metaverse environment. The program will allow fans to access special content from some of Manchester City’s best soccer players, including Alex Greenwood, Jack Grealish, and Ruben Dias. 


Gundogan’s soccer class closely follows Manchester City’s center-back Ruben Dias’ metaverse workshop. OKX seeks to unlock more experiences designed around each top soccer player’s playing style and personal interest. 

Besides the exclusive training content, OKX plans to include music and NFT-backed digital experiences and competitions. Fans can then participate and compete to win prizes, passes to team training, match tickets, and more.
