We’re building the ultimate football fan collection...
Hero Indian Super League – the top division in Indian football – is about to become the country’s first sports property to launch an NFT collectibles series for their fans…
Back in September, we shared the news of our new partnership with the Hero Indian Super League. Well, just as the eleven teams have been getting ready to return to the pitches in Goa, we’ve been busy behind the scenes, building some unique fan collectibles in time for the 2021–22 season. Today, we’re excited to announce the launch of the first NFTs (non-fungible tokens) in the Hero ISL Official Digital Collectibles series.
Whichever team you support, you’ll find a growing collection of digital items to bring you closer to your team in a whole new way. Whether you’re a fan of ATK Mohun Bagan, Mumbai City FC, NorthEast United, Bengaluru FC, FC Goa, Hyderabad FC, Jamshedpur FC, Chennaiyin FC, East Bengal FC, Kerala Blasters or Odisha FC there will be a range of items for you!
And to celebrate the launch of the Hero ISL Official Digital Collectibles series, we are giving fans the chance to get their first Hero ISL collectible for FREE! FOR A LIMITED TIME ONLY, you can get hold of your team’s VFLECT mascot at no cost when you sign up for (or sign in to your existing) Terra Virtua account and select your preferred team.
But first things first..!
We understand that not everyone knows what non-fungible tokens (AKA NFTs) are all about. If this is you, we’ve got your back! Take a look at the FAQs at the bottom of this post.

Hero ISL VFLECT Mascots
This season, every Hero ISL team has a brand-new mascot in the shape of Terra Virtua’s much-loved VFLECTs. We really hope you love them as much as we do!
And for a short time only you can grab yourself the mascot of your choice FOR FREE! But you must be quick to sign up!
But… what’s a VFLECT, I hear you cry?! Let’s meet some now…
Our popular robot VFLECTS are native to Terra Virtua, where they can be found dressing up as a range of characters with a personality all of their own. Each limited edition VFLECT is a 3D-animated model with a number of characteristics that makes it stand out. You can view and rotate them around a full 360 degrees and watch them go through a range of motions. You can even interact with them via augmented reality using our app.
There's so much more still to come...
So, who will you be supporting this season? Will Igor Angulo and Roy Krishna keep up their rivalry for most goals scored? Will Arshdeep Singh make the most saves? And can anyone pass the ball more times than Edu Bedia? It’s all up for grabs!
And as the season progresses, you can grab your favourite team’s collectibles right here in the Marketplace. We’ll be adding much more to the Hero ISL Official Digital Collectibles series – and we’re really excited to share with you what’s dropping soon…
More great NFTs hitting the back of the net soon!
An NFT is a digital item created (minted) in a way that makes every single one unique – so only you will ever own that exact item, unless you decide to sell it or give it to someone else. Your NFT is made unique through a special method of registration and tracking, which takes place on a cloud-based ledger (which is like a database) called a blockchain. NFTs can be minted in editions of varying numbers, from 1 to thousands, which gives them different levels of rarity.
When you buy an NFT on Terra Virtua, it’ll be stored in your Terra Virtua account, where you can interact with your NFT in various ways (depending on how it was created, and the rights given to you in the contract that your NFT comes with). Windows PC users can store and showcase their NFTs in special virtual spaces that we call the Fancave, Terradome, and Art Gallery – and Android users can bring their NFTs to life in augmented reality (AR) through our mobile app.
Download links for the Fancave, Terradome, Art Gallery, and mobile app can be found on the Terra Virtua homepage.
This can happen, especially with our limited editions. NFTs are a fun new way to collect things that you’re passionate about, but they are very popular and can sell out quickly.
If you manage to buy an NFT when it first drops, you’ll get that NFT at its original mint price – but when it sells out, it’s gone, and this is where auctions come in.
You might get another chance to buy the NFT you’re looking for, if someone who currently owns the item you want decides to put it back on the Marketplace by putting it up for auction. However, auction prices are usually higher than the original mint price – so it always helps to stay up to date with the latest NFT news, and get in as early as possible when something you like is about to drop.
The NFT space is truly fascinating, and it’s always evolving. You can learn more about NFTs in our NFT Newbies section, right here on Terra Virtua!
* Terms and conditions
Limited-time offer and while stocks last. Users will receive their free VFLECT within 7 days of successfully signing up for a Terra Virtua account and choosing their team VFLECT.
