“Make Your Play” sees Gündoğan step into the OKX Collective metaverse to guide fans through pre-planned drills and explain his in-game decision-making processes. Appointed Manchester City captain for the 2022/23 season, İlkay Gündoğan is known for his tactical football mind and love of coaching.

İlkay Gündoğan said: “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.”

Haider Rafique, Global Chief Marketing Officer at OKX, said: “Hot on the heels of Rúben Días taking to the metaverse to show us how he maintains top performance for matchday, we are very excited to get insights into İlkay’s tactical approach in the same forum. İlkay is an incredible football mind, and this chance to benefit from his expert knowledge in an interactive virtual environment provides a glimpse into how Web3 stands to overhaul the ways we connect and interact in the future.”
