Cristiano Ronaldo launches new NFT collection

The footballer announced this Wednesday his new NFT collection, together with Binance, called "Forever Worldwide: The Road to Saudi Arabia"

Footballer Cristiano Ronaldo and Binance announced this Wednesday the launch of their fourth NFT collection, called “Forever Worldwide: The Road to Saudi Arabia.”

The first round of launch occurred this May 29, with locations such as Madeira, Lisbon and Manchester. “The vibrant artworks by Portuguese artists Katt Phatt (representing Madeira) and Rodrigo Doin (Lisbon) represent the place where Cristiano Ronaldo’s journey began.”

Fans have the opportunity to acquire this piece from the beginning of his history in this sport. This first release also includes an NFT artwork by Manchester artist John Sheehan, in tribute to his rapid rise in Manchester.

Next June 6 is the second launch, where the city of Madrid will also be a mandatory stop on this tour through NFTs, in addition to Turin and Saudi Arabia. The designs of the Spanish artist Lisett Ledón will represent her “unprecedented success” in the Spanish capital. This piece encompasses his passion for the Spanish League, “while the artist Pasquale Garibaldi (Italy) will capture his time in Turin, celebrating his legacy in Serie A and Italian football. Finally, Saudi artist Shaker Kashgari has designed an NFT to mark Cristiano Ronaldo’s final and most recent chapter in Saudi Arabia.”

It will be a delight for fans, who will take a tour of CR7’s career: Madeira, Lisbon, Manchester, Madrid, Turin, Saudi Arabia and Portugal, according to Binance.

The last phase of this launch is an auction at the end of June when interested parties will be able to access a very special limited collection of 7 Super Super Rare (SSR) NFTs. Designed by local artist Mr. Dheo, the limited collection “pays tribute to Cristiano Ronaldo’s unwavering dedication to his native country and can be purchased through an online auction from June 14 to 18.”

Starting June 11, superfans who have collected all the NFTs in the collection of this fourth Ronaldo release will be entered to win one of the special NFTs for free.

“Priced at $35 at all locations except the limited SSR NFTs, the collection introduces a ‘Collect to Earn’ mechanism to access the utilities and benefits of the NFTs.” It means that collectors can start earning rewards from the first purchase of a Forever Worldwide NFT, “including vintage t-shirts, football tickets, signed and printable posters and the possibility of sending questions that Cristiano will answer in a video made especially for holders of NFTs.”

Another important information, taking into account how special Portugal is for the athlete, is that “holders of the rare NFTs from Portugal will receive an exclusive experience with Cristiano himself, which includes a trip to Riyadh, a ticket to a match of football, followed by a personalized moment of celebrating a goal with Cristiano.” The auction for it will be on June 14; and the four highest bidders will win this rare NFT.
