Premier League stars launch digital collectables with a major NFT deal, thanks to Sportemon Go and Pickstar partnership.
With this Manchester United star Luke Shaw and Liverpool FC’s Andy Robertson, today launched their own NFTs.
Fans can register on www.sportemongo.com to win one of Luke Shaw’s First Edition NFTs, valued at over £700. Andy Robertson’s NFT will be available later this month.
The partnership between SportemonGo and Pickstar will bring Premier League stars to Pickstar, the global marketplace for sports and entertainment talent. Pickstar is a platform that allows brands and businesses to search and select stars with ease, ranging from sports after dinner speakers and motivational speakers for events such as International Women’s Day, to opportunities in helping companies hire a football legend for one-off or multi-year brand partnerships.
Luke Shaw and Andy Roberston signed exclusively with Sportemon Go for all future NFTs, now join over 25 other athletes doing the same.
Fans will soon be able to see these players in various digital formats and purchase one of a kind collectables. Something similar to “Marvel-like” superhero virtual trading cards to augmented reality-style collections.
Sportemon Go will pursue creating and issuing a number of unique NFT editions and releases featuring Premier League stars. According to Sportemon Go’s CEO, Ricky Jackson, “We’re over the moon to be partnering with some of the best talents in the Premier League for a series of NFTs, that commemorates their playing career, special memories, moments and memorabilia in an authentic digital format. Together we will be creating some of the most exciting and dynamic digital collectables for football fans to enjoy for generations to come. Pickstar has been instrumental in helping us in both the search and selection of these two incredible stars and we’re thrilled to be offering these Heroes NFTs for sale starting today with Luke Shaw.”
