TopGoal, a platform that collects football NFT trading cards, today announced a new deal with the biggest names in football that will see them become non-counterfeitable tokens on Binance NFT.
The big football stars who have partnered with TopGoal on Binance NFT
The platform is partnering with well-known football players, organizations and clubs to offer packages with digital player cards that game participants can win and own.
Alessandro del Piero, Christian Vieri and Gabriel Batistuta are just the latest high-profile footballers to strike deals with TopGoal to link their names to the NFT game.
TopGoal has also launched an airdrop for the second series of its digital cards on Binance’s NFT platform. Earlier this year, the company had completed deals with former international champions such as Guti, Michael Owen and Rivaldo. The drop was also done on Binance NFT, so this is a renewed partnership.
Alessandro Del Piero said.
“Football is the most watched sport in the world and there are many historic moments that deserve to be remembered. Bringing NFTs and football together can offer fans the opportunity to collect these great moments of the players they support, build their own fantasy teams and play unique legendary football cards. I’m excited to be a part of that.”
Champions Coin Football Project
In Italy, a project linking the names of some football players to a proprietary coin was released in mid-September and will soon be available on a dedicated platform for the purchase of goods and services.
The token has risen about 365% in a few weeks.
Football and cryptocurrencies
But the news is hardly surprising considering the cryptocurrency world’s extensive involvement in the world of sports, especially football.
Crypto.com, a Singapore-based exchange, has become a major sponsor of the Italian football league after sponsoring last year’s Italian Cup final.
Binance recently signed a deal with Lazio to put its logo on the team’s official jersey for the next three years.
The same goes for another team in the capital, Roma, who have signed a three-year sponsorship deal with Digitalbits for €83 million.
Milan and Juventus have chosen two exchanges, Bitmex and Bitget, to sponsor their brands on the sleeves of their official uniforms.
On the other hand, Inter Milan has dropped its 20-year partnership with Pirelli in favor of Socios, the cryptocurrency company whose fan tokens make the interaction between fans and their favorite team more direct.
Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid, Manchester United and Barcelona have also partnered with the cryptocurrency company.
The possibility of additional income is one of the main features that make the cryptocurrency and NFT sector interested in a world that has been in a major liquidity crisis for a long time like football.
Companies like Socios, Digitalbits, TopGoal, Sorare offer teams new and interesting sources of revenue from the interactions generated by the fan tokens created by these companies.
