The Fan Controlled Football League (FCFL) announced today that the legendary undisputed heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson is their seventh team owner/fan captain who will be working with fans to lead their team to victory in FCFL. To kick off this announcement, Mike Tyson has autographed boxing gloves, match-worn boxing shoes, and a football exclusively to give away on WAX! See him signing them here:

FCFL, a WAX partner, is the first league to let the fans call the plays in real time, alongside Tyson and other celebrity owners, like real-life Madden. WAX and FCFL partnered up to virtualize each piece of FCFL merchandise from all eight inaugural teams such as shirts, hoodies, hats, mugs, and other fan gear. Buyers will receive their FCFL merchandise virtually in the form of a vIRL, the dApp that virtualizes physical items, and can also redeem the vIRL for the physical version whenever they want and have it shipped to their address. As with all vIRLs, owners can trade, sell, or gift FCFL merchandise on the WAX Blockchain.

Winners of the contest can redeem their prize and have it shipped to them, or sell it on OPSkins Marketplace, or trade them on the WAX Blockchain using WAX ExpressTrade.

The inaugural teams are owned by Marshawn Lynch, Richard Sherman, Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson, Bobby Jones, Kinda Funny, Prince Royce, Mike Tyson and one more yet to be announced.

Fans will watch FCFL games on Twitch, where they'll be broadcasted live. "FCFL has an exclusive, multi-year streaming broadcast agreement with Twitch, a live streaming video platform owned by a subsidiary of Amazon. Twitch will co-market the FCFL to its user base of over 120+ million monthly viewers. Using a custom Twitch Extension, the FCFL and Twitch have developed an interactive overlay for desktop and mobile, allowing fans to call the plays in real time. The FCFL is the first professional sports league built on top of the Twitch platform," said FCFL in a press release about the addition of Joe Montana as its Chief Strategic Officer.
