Technology advancements are paving the way for ticketing innovations, and the Professional Fighters League (PFL) is stepping into the ring of revolution. The PFL’s new innovative NFT ticketing system overrides the traditional Ultimate Fighting Championship model, introducing an advanced framework for match attendees on-chain.
The PFL is strategizing a grand entrance into the Web3 realm, launching a digital ticket initiative for season ticket holders celebrating half a decade of the league’s existence. These new tickets will grant holders limitless advantages, providing a gateway to not only matches but also pre-battle weigh-ins, exclusive cage-side seats, interaction opportunities with PFL fighters, ring walk experiences, and more.
The new development sees Web3 firm, CrossTower, utilize the XRP Ledger blockchain, which forms the backbone of PFL’s NFT ticketing system. As such, its utility and scalability streamline the entire ticketing process, adding an extra layer of security to minimize fraud.

Sports NFT Ticketing – Prime Examples
NFT ticketing is not uncharted territory, as demonstrated by The National Football League (NFL), which first distributed NFT tickets in 2021 and has continued using them ever since. Moreover, World Rugby has shown curiosity in the Web3 world, experimenting with NFT ticketing in December 2021 and creating plans to implement such tickets into this year’s Rugby World Cup, set to take place in France this Autumn.
Sports Illustrated is another example of firms playing around with the potential of NFT ticketing, debuting its own platform, ‘Box Office’, this month. Collaborating with ConsenSys and powered by Polygon, Box Office supplies a comprehensive self-service ticketing system and management platform.
As the use cases behind NFTs become more apparent, the future of ticketing is evolving, ushering in a new era of digital access while granting holders unique experiences, while adding an extra layer of extra safety.
