Join the PWRFWD Charter Club.

The business of women's basketball is a great one. We recognized this two years ago when we started PWRFWD, and it's why, in March of 2022, we decided to go all-in on women's hoops. Interested in joining us? Become a member today.

Here's what you get:

🧥Charter Club Jacket NFT
This NFT features 3D art designed by the PWRFWD team. Holding it proves your status as a Charter Club member.

🛩Charter Club Status
The PWRFWD Discord is a growing community of WNBA fans. Official members have a special designation in the community and access to member-only channels.

💺VIP Ticket Nominations
We bought a pair of VIP 2022 season tickets in every WNBA market. Members decide who gets to use them.

🏀 WNBA League Pass
We’ve secured League Pass access codes for all holders (and a few extras). 

💻 Access to Virtual & IRL Meet & Greets
Engage with our powerful network at games and online. (First example of this is a suite at the Seattle Storm @ NY Liberty game during NFT NYC).

📢 Guest Speaker Series
Athletes, sports executives, investors, and media members will be joining us regularly for our "Power Talks" series.

🥂 ASW Presence
IRL activation for members at ASW in Chicago.

🎟️ First Dibs on Future Drops

ROADMAP

Fans and athletes pour everything into their teams and leagues. Without us, there would be no pro sports. Yet, we have been sidelined from having any decision-making power at the franchise and league levels. We’re out to shift who holds the power in professional sports by bridging the gap between ownership groups, athletes and fans. Below is a high level road map to paint a picture of what we’re setting out to do. Please keep in mind that road maps provide general guard rails, but no journey is ever a straight line. As a start-up founded in March of 2020, we understand how to adapt direction based on performance, market dynamics, and opportunity.

QUARTER 01

  • NFT Creative ✅
  • Secure Season Tickets in Every Market ✅
  • Lockdown 1,000 League Pass Codes ✅

QUARTER 02

  • Day 1 Drop: Airdrop “W” pins to key community members who’ve been with us since the beginning.
  • PR: Features in Boardroom, Dime, and more. ✅
  • Launch Charter Club Membership: 1,000 Charter Jacket NFTs available for $260. ✅
  • Courtside Club: Put community members as close to the action as it gets by letting them nominate two recipients to use our VIP seats at every WNBA game. ✅
  • Operation League Pass: PWRFWD membership comes with a 2022 WNBA League Pass subscription. Let’s drive those viewership numbers up! (Already a subscriber? Gift yours to someone else and help grow the game.) ✅

QUARTER 03

  • PWRFWD Power Talks: A virtual event series dedicated to constructive dialogue, the exchange of ideas and collaboration with the intention to enhance the well-being of athletes, empower fans and elevate the WNBA at large. Through the engagement of various stakeholders and industry experts, the talks aim to address contemporary issues that impact the WNBA, to educate and create better touch points for innovative solutions.
  • IRL Events: We’re working on some secret events during NFT.NYC and WNBA All-Star Weekend. Stay tuned.
  • Drops Kickoff: We’ll be launching more NFTs throughout the season to compliment the Charter Jacket. PWRFWD members get early access.

QUARTER 04 + BEYOND

  • IRL Charter Club Jacket Creation: We will provide the professional resources for the community to help bring the Charter Club Jacket to life for future purchase.
  • Planning for Season II: Town hall meeting with members to discuss what went well, what could be improved, and how to grow our impact on the game.
  • WNBA Expansion: Our team is uniquely positioned between fans, athletes, league execs, and ownership groups. We aim to operate as a bridge to make something happen. Expansion will continue to be something for our collective community to lean into.

KEY INFORMATION

Total number of memberships — 1,000

Membershipss withheld from sale — 25 (team & marketing)

Price per Membership — $260

WHY DO I HAVE TO BUY AN NFT TO GET MY MEMBERSHIP?

By purchasing an NFT, we are able to easily verify who our community members are and efficiently deliver value to everyone. Additionally, we think this is a better experience for community members, as the NFT not only serves as your proof of membership, but it’s also a liquid asset. This means that you will have the ability to re-sell your membership on a secondary market like OpenSea in the future if you so choose. As we continue to build a powerful community, you stand to benefit, rather than simply paying an ongoing subscription fee.

DOES THIS COME WITH A JACKET I CAN ACTUALLY WEAR?

The NFT does not come with an IRL jacket. Instead, we will work as a community to bring one to life. We wanted to make sure when we make it, we're creating something the community actually wants at a price that works for everyone. Only Charter Club members (NFT holders) will be able to purchase the jacket at cost. It's going be a super cool process and we can't wait to have you on board!

WHAT IS AN NFT?

NFT stands for “Non-fungible token.” It’s a unique digital item that you can buy, sell, own, and trade. Some NFTs are just cool-looking art, while others offer utility. The Charter Jacket gives you access to members-only perks.

ARE YOU THE SAME PWRFWD I KNOW AND LOVE?

Yes! You can still the athlete-to-consumer marketplace at shop.pwrfwd.co.

I'M NEW TO WEB3, IS PWRFWD RIGHT FOR ME?

Absolutely! We partnered with Bitski to make it easy for people who are new to web3 to participate in the PWRFWD community. Bitski offers a secure, user-friendly wallet that allows you to purchase NFTs the same way you’d buy a t-shirt (with a credit card).

WHAT HAPPENS TO THE MONEY?

Proceeds will be used to fund:

  • Leadership and operations
  • Product and engineering
  • Legal, compliance, and accounting
  • Expanded utility (Tickets, league pass subscriptions, IRL events, and more)
  • Marketing and partnerships
  • Community development
  • Community-driven initiatives

HOW DO I ACTIVATE MY LEAGUE PASS SUBSCRIPTION?

Our team will send WNBA League Pass codes to all holders on 5/1/2022.

HOW DO THE WNBA TICKETS WORK?

PWRFWD members will have the opportunity to nominate two recipients (can be outside the community) for games each week. Selection is based on activity within the community and number of nominations.

WHAT ARE THE NFTS?

PWRFWD NFTs come in three flavors…

  • Day One: A special pin airdropped to 260 of our early supporters and most active community members.
  • Charter Jacket: Our foundational drop, made up of 1,000 Charter Jackets.
  • In-Season Drops: Throughout the season, we’ll release limited edition NFTs in collaboration with athletes and brands. Follow us on Twitter or join our Discord for notifications.

HOW WILL PHYSICAL PRODUCTS WORK?

Most of our NFTs come with a physical item. Redemption is simple. We send out a form asking you for your:

  • Name
  • Email address
  • Physical address
  • Wallet ID
  • Sizing information (if applicable)

And that’s it!

WHICH NETWORK ARE PWRFWD NFTS BUILT ON?

Ethereum.

HOW DO I BUY A PWRFWD NFT?

I HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT BITSKI / THE BITSKI WALLET?
