Another club has joined the upcoming football game, UFL. This time, it’s the Ukrainian club, Shakhtar Donetsk. Shakhtar’s partnership with UFL was made public on the club’s website on Friday. The Ukrainian super club is the third club to join the UFL line-up right behind Sporting Lisbon and West Ham United.
Shakhtar’s commercial director, Dmitriy Kirilenko, expressed his delight over the deal on the club’s website.
“We are delighted to be partnering with the Strikerz Inc studio. We feel confident that UFL is going to raise the bar of football gaming.”
Strikerz Inc CEO, Eugene Nashilov, included his excitement for working with the thirteen-time Ukrainian champions.
“We’re very excited to welcome Shakhtar, the thirteen-time Ukrainian champions, the club with a long and rich history and many prestigious trophies and awards, to the list of our licensed partners. We look forward to developing a long-lasting relationship with the club and all its fans.”
Similar to the recent deal with Sporting Lisbon, we don’t know the specifics of the agreement between UFL and Shakhtar Donetsk. However, we can speculate that this is a licensing deal for the club’s rights, including club name, logo, stadium, and players.
