Paris Saint-German (PSG), a renowned French football club, started selling commemorative NFT and NFT tickets for their first Japan tour since 1995 (age 27).
The football club stated on its website:
“In the summer of 2022, Paris Saint-Germain, one of the best football clubs in the world, will tour Japan! To commemorate your first visit to Japan in 27 years, we will be offering premium NFT tickets and commemorative NFT tickets that you can only purchase here and now.”
As per the announcement, there will be 3 NFT tickets (each ticket will cost around 180.36 ETH, which is over $205K at current prices) for the three scheduled matches for Japan.
On the other hand, the commemorative NFTs will feature moments captured in images and videos from the tour. The first match is scheduled to start on July 20 with Japan Kawasaki Frontale. PSG’s game will feature stars like Lionel Messi.
The sale will end on Wednesday and all ticket holders will have the opportunity to access the lounge and join the VIP party with the players.
Adoption of PSG Encryption
PSG is among the football teams that have adopted NFTs and Cryptos in their recent campaigns.
Last month, PSG revealed its plans to release an NFT collection that will commemorate its 10th league championship and also the Year of the Tiger with Taiwanese pop star Jay Chou. The collection must present 10,000 NFTs.
Furthermore, according to reports from last year, Lionel Messi, upon signing a contract with PSG, opted to receive part of his transfer package in cryptofan tokens.
The sports world appears to be on the cusp of adopting cryptocurrencies as more clubs sign partnerships with cryptocurrency organizations. These partnerships will be a huge boost for cryptocurrency companies as they will be able to reach new fans and investors.
