Alphonso Davies Partners With Binance for NFTs
Taking advantage of the ongoing NFT craze, the company behind the world’s leading crypto exchange announced a marketplace supporting non-fungible tokens at the end of April. Launching in June 2021, the initiative plans to “bring together artists, creators, and crypto enthusiasts from around the world.”
Binance’s plans to “create the most compelling metaverse with one-of-a-kind offerings and exclusive collaborations” will see a solid start with Alphonso Davies. Both parties announced the partnership in a press release shared with CryptoPotato.
It reads that the 20-year-old Canadian left-back currently playing for the 2020 UEFA Champions League winners Bayern Munich will release his first NFT collection on top of Binance NFT Marketplace.
The soccer star has collaborated with the renowned US-based illustrator Jack Perkins and some of his fans and followers on social media to produce the unique digital artwork. It will consist of three designs, which the fans will be able to choose by a vote.
“It’s been crazy to see the way crypto has grown over the years to the point where I feel now it’s changing the game through NFTs and providing another opportunity for genuine engagement with fans.
Away from football, I am always looking into new technological changes to help engage with people across the world, and this is just another layer to my digital presence.” – commented Davies.

The statement outlined a particularly memorable gift for one lucky participant. The collection will enable three winners, which will be chosen through a “raffle format.” Each will receive the limited edition NFT along with the chance for one golden ticket winner to meet the soccer star and be presented with a signed UEFA Champions League winners shirt.
Helen Hai, Head of Binance NFT, welcomed Davies to the extensive partners’ list and highlighted the difference between his NFT collections and others. The executive noted that Davies’ digital artwork will present an “exclusive real-life experience.”
“Binance NFT Marketplace will be providing the best user experience for sports fans and NFT fans, adding forces and values to the growth of the industry.” – Hai concluded.
