Sheesha Finance AMA with Soccer City
Welcome Sheesha Family to our latest Community AMA Session!
This week, we’re joined by Orkhan (CEO), Yahya (COO) and Nihat (Head of Communications) to talk about all things Soccer City.
Soccer City is bringing football management to Web3 with the world’s first soccer-centric Metaverse. The game concept has been created by the Eleven King Football Manager game team. For the record, Eleven Kings partnered with the legendary Ronaldinho, before he became the face of Eleven Kings.
Now, they are bringing football manager gaming into the metaverse with Soccer City.

Amazing, thank you all for being here today. Soccer City is really taking Football Manager games to the next level. Could you please tell us more about the origins of the game?
In 2017 we started with Eleven Kings, mobile game company based in Lausanne, Switzerland. Partnered with Ronaldinho, launched our product, he became the face of Eleven Kings game and shareholder at the same time.
Being experienced in various fields such as marketing, software development, project management allows us to bring our passion, vision, and experience to the next level. Last year decided to move football gaming to the Metaverse and Soccer City was born.
What can players expect when they step into the Soccer City metaverse for the first time?
When users step into the Soccer City, they will step into the fully immersive soccer heaven in the metaverse. Players can own land, start a club, join soccer tournaments, as well as earn trophies, tokens, and NFTs to build their soccer city in the metaverse.
What we are building, will allow our users to build their future entertainment, business, and social life in the Metaverse in a fun and professional way.
Our solutions are:
Various Games & Tournaments
After creating a club, users can join various tournaments, compete against other users, and get trophies & rewards.
Land Plots & Soccer Clubs
Users can buy a land plot, create a club and join tournaments to earn tokens & NFTs.
Clubs’ NFT Collections
Soccer clubs can sell NFTs to their fans to make money. On the other hand, fans will get a chance to support their clubs and benefit from the game.
Tell us more about the P2E features, such as the different ways players can earn, how long it takes to start earning, etc.
As we mentioned earlier in our solutions, players will have the variety of ways to earn tokens. First of all, user needs to own a land plot, in order to be able to create a club. After owning a land plot and creating a club, user will be able to compete in different tournaments. Soccer City will have its own competitions such as:
- Meta Soccer League
- Meta Soccer Cup (MSC)
- Meta Champions League (MCL)
- Meta World Cup (MWC)
Meta Soccer League will be the primary soccer league system in Soccer City. Each country will have a maximum of 5 Leagues. Each League will consist of 20 teams.
There will be 38 rounds in every league season as every team will play at home and away with every other team in the League.
After the season finished:
1st League: 1st place will be declared as the Champion of the Meta Soccer League. The bottom 3 teams will be relegated to the 2nd League.
2nd-4th Leagues: The Top 3 teams in each League will be promoted to the upper League. The bottom 3 teams in each League will be relegated to the lower League.
5th League: Only the Top 3 teams will be promoted to the 4th League.
Every season lasts 3 months. Monday-Friday is matchdays, Saturday-Sunday is break and player transfer days.
Meta Soccer Cup (MSC) will be the knockout tournament in which all divisions will be represented by the draw.
Meta Champions League (MCL) will be the international tournament that will be held among the champions of the local league systems. MCL will be held after the local league tournament is finished.
Meta World Cup (MWC) will be the most prestigious tournament in Soccer City. It will be held once a year (every 4 seasons), and the participants will be the champions of the leagues during those 4 seasons. If any team is the League champion more than once during 4 seasons, the second-place team will be promoted to the MWC.
One really cool feature for Soccer City is the ability to own your own business. How exactly will this work in-game?
The model is pretty simple, you purchase a land, buy a stadium, host events there or tournaments, basically rent your stadium and grow your business.
Other model is to create a soccer club and participate in tournaments, where users will be able to win tokens, trophies and other prizes.
Cool! Can you tell us more about purchasing real estate in Soccer City?
Initially we plan to deliver such real estate assets, as lands, stadiums, NFT halls etc.
Further we may enlarge the list of possible real estate assets.
Seems like an amazing way to immerse players in the Metaverse world, for sure. The $SOCCR token is set to have its IDO event later this year. Can you tell us more about the token structure, and how people can get involved with the IDO?
Yes, our IDO is planned for this year, in late September and actually everyone, the team, the community are getting very excited as the time passes and September approaches.
Regarding the structure of our token, $SOCCR Token is a standard BEP20 token of the Binance Smart Chain network with a limited supply. Users have to own $SOCCR token in order to perform actions on the platform.
Let me indicate couple of main parts of our tokenomics:
10% of the total $SOCCR supply will be dedicated to ecosystem’s growth. It will be distributed among mostly soccer influencers and their audience.
14.6% of the total $SOCCR supply will be dedicated to gaming & staking rewards as it will help us to keep the users always motivated and excited.
For more details we invite everyone to check our Tokenomics which is available on our website and whitepaper.
Which real-world challenges does Soccer City help to solve?
One of main points in our strategy is corporate social responsibility. We plan to spend 1% from the total amount of our tokens in development 3 different directions and we do understand the importance of these points. We plan to support:
- Children with limited access to soccer
- The development and enhancement of women soccer
- The development and enhancement soccer in regions
What kind of perks can someone get for owning a Stadium NFT? Will the stadium be able to be upgraded later?
Stadium NFT is one of the main assets of Soccer City. Owning a stadium will allow the owners to earn tokens by:
- renting it to clubs for matches
- hosting different private or public events
- set tournaments
- and in the end sell stadiums to others
In the future we plan to deliver the upgrades of Stadium NFTs, which I can not disclose right now.
Do you plan something during FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022?
For sure, FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 is one of the biggest events of the year for our community and project in total. We have huge plans during this event. First and foremost, we will launch very important strategic Marketing & PR plan which will make a global impact for our project.
Moreover, we plan to launch the 3D game beta version and NFT presales.
