Sygnum and Swiss Tennis announce an NFT (Non-Fungible Token) collection to fund training and development for future tennis champions in Switzerland. The Swiss national team launches the collection at a press conference today to continue in the spirit of their win at the 2022 world championship.
With its Swiss Tennis World Champion NFT art collection, Swiss Tennis explores new ways to engage with international tennis fans and give them unique fan experiences. Proceeds raised by the NFT collection will fund training and development for the next generation of tennis players in Switzerland. Sygnum is proud to provide the blockchain and Web3 technology platform for Swiss Tennis to issue their first NFT collection with complete trust.
Unique works of digital art as the key to exclusive fan experiences
Hand-drawn artwork, created by artist and Swiss Tennis star, Valentina Ryser, will be featured in a series of 5,000 NFTs. The Swiss Tennis World Champion NFT collection is available for purchase starting today at nft.swisstennis.ch.
In just a few clicks for a price of CHF 20, NFT holders will receive artwork and a 1-in-5 chance to access unique, real-world opportunities across four categories, including a meet-and-greet with the team, VIP ticket packages and limited-edition merchandise. This NFT collection makes fan engagement and fundraising possible for creators and the non-profit sector with Sygnum as a trusted, regulated provider.
