Thanks to these new technologies, WSC wants to develop an AI-based camera system in the stadiums in order to track and record the players' skills in the blockchain.
But this is not the only project of the firm, WSC said want to set up an E-sports platform to bet on matches. In addition, a "Smile" project will be launched with the aim of offering football-related products to children, building infrastructures for disabled children and setting up scholarships for young promising prodigies.
