Spanish Laliga uses Blockchain System for Football Certification
Laliga, Spain’s leading soccer league, has announced that it will be one of the first organizations to certify balls used to score goals using blockchain technology. The institution has partnered with Gol-Ball, a third-party company, to implement the system.

Samuel Eto’o, Laliga ambassador and former footballer, spoke about the importance of this new technology. Eto’o said:
Throughout your career as a footballer, you’ll usually be awarded the ball only after scoring a hat-trick, but you’re never sure if it’s the ball you’ve actually scored. If we had been able to identify the goal scoring ball, my friends and I would have wanted it all.
Soccer Market Score Goals
In a press statement issued on December 1, Laliga state that this goal-scoring ball will be available to all fans through a “mechanism involving fans” will be disclosed in January. This marks the establishment of a secondary market for the ball, which can be distributed to fans through raffles or paid participation, opening up new engagements and revenue for the company.

It is a bridge between the real world and the digital world. We are proud of LaLiga for innovating and offering fans a way to connect emotionally with their favorite clubs and idols.
