Cristiano Ronaldo and Binance Team Up for NFT Partnershipby Fintechnews Switzerland June 24, 2022
Binance announced an exclusive multi-year partnership with Portuguese football legend Cristiano Ronaldo.
The five-time Ballon D’or winner is joining forces with Binance to provide a one-of-a-kind experience for football fans worldwide, with a series of NFT collections that will launch exclusively on Binance’s official NFT platform. Registered Binance users in select countries will also be able to purchase the collections using Binance Pay.
The first collection, slated to launch later this year, will feature designs created in collaboration with Ronaldo.
“Nothing is more important to me than the fans, so the idea of bringing unprecedented experiences and access through this platform is something that I wanted to be a part of,”
“I know the fans are going to enjoy the collection as much as I do.”
Through this partnership, Binance is taking the sports fandom experience to unprecedented levels. Moreover, it will build on existing partnerships with the Argentine Football Association, the Brazilian Football Confederation, and professional sports clubs S.S. Lazio (IT) and FC Porto (PT).
“Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the world’s best footballers, and has transcended sport to become an icon in multiple industries. He has amassed one of the world’s most dedicated fan bases through his authenticity, talent, and charity work,”
said Binance Founder and CEO “CZ” (Changpeng Zhao).
“We are thrilled to provide his fans with exclusive engagement opportunities to connect with Ronaldo and own a piece of iconic sports history.”
To all the NFT, football, and Cristiano Ronaldo fans, this is only the beginning of what’s to come.
Proud to be partnering with @binance
Together we’ll give you the opportunity to own an iconic piece of sports history.
