This digital asset makes it possible to associate a digital object such as an image, video, audio extract, etc. to a title deed that has been validated according to blockchain principles. Therefore, NFT offers the possibility of demonstrating a digital rarity.
The newfound popularity of NFTs translates into numbers: the market has literally exploded at a record growth rate of 21,350% last year. (Source: NFT Markets Annual Report 2021 NonFungible.com, January 2022).
This phenomenon continues to grow. Not a week goes by without the brand launching its own project.
Today, Club Sportif Sedan Ardennes (CSSA) is playing a pioneering role by creating the first NFT kit based on a football club mascot.
An original, innovative and exciting project … from a famous football club with a prestigious past, a promising future and its legendary symbol, the wild boar of the Ardennes.
Thus a partnership agreement was signed, through its subsidiary Metaplus, between CSSA and Coinception, an agency specializing in the creation of NFT devices for brands, which manages the operational aspect of the project.
“Through its values, CSSA is much more than just a football club. And because it is truly rooted in trends, incorporating irreplaceable symbols into the club’s vision has naturally imposed itself on us. We are pleased to share such an experience with our community of supporters.”
Mark Dubois, President of CSSA
100% unique CSSA pigs
The Sportiv Sedan Club Ardennes (CSSA) has made a surprise by creating the NFT Collection of 11,011 figures, bearing the image of the club’s mascot.
This number, which is predetermined, is a reference to the two teams of 11 players on the field (11 vs. 11). It also echoes the fully committed multidisciplinary team of 11 people dedicated to the success of this project. 11 … like 11 players on the field!
Each CSSA Boars is unique, hand drawn by the designer and randomly generated using an algorithm of 150 attributes. These attributes (accessory, eye color, soccer jerseys, etc.) give each NFT a unique character, and determine its value in the collection according to its rarity level.
Another originality of the project that will appeal to football fans: the collection is divided into 5 categories of CSSA boards, each representing a key position in the field and a specific quality (endurance, focus, technique, agility, strategy).
Thus, each fan will be able to find his “wild boar” among the proposed teams:
• Defender – 2500 NFTs (0.05 ETH): The center back and full-back represent the first defense before the goalkeeper.
Midfielder – 2,500 NFTs (0.10 ETH): A defensive midfielder, runner or attacker, who has the stamina to defend and attack.
• Goalkeeper – 2500 NFTs (0.15 ETH): A key role in a match where you must not let the ball cross the line.
• Striker – 2500 NFTs (0.20 ETH): Striker or Striker, Striker or Supporting Wing, all strategically positioned.
• Staff – 1,011 NFTs (0.25 ETH): Coach, physical trainer, doctors, managers… are the key players in the shadows.
A set that makes you want to wear your straps
By investing in CSSA Boars NFT, supporters not only buy unique digital artwork, but also join the “happy few” who will be able to enjoy the VIP experience.
CSSA Boars provides access to a community of “crypto advocates” who will be rewarded with benefits that evolve over time. Gifts will be regularly given to bearers; They will participate in the preview of exclusive virtual events or will have privileged access to capsule groups on the occasion of future cooperation … But that is not all, the community will participate in all future developments, for example by voting on strategic options.
This participatory project and its long-term vision will captivate football fans!
