The collection’s net earnings, which include images of the Swiss Women’s National Team, will go entirely toward funding women’s football in Switzerland.

Credit Suisse, a Swiss financial bank, and the Swiss Football Association (SFA) are collaborating to launch a non-fungible token (NFT) collection in support of women’s football.

The collection includes a number of digital portraits of the players on the Swiss Women’s National Team, according to a press release. The squad and other groups committed to empowering female football players will both get all of the collection’s earnings.

Starting on July 11, the 756 NFTs, which were created on Ethereum, will be sold on CSX, Credit Suisse’s online banking platform.

Additionally, three packages of the NFTs will be available for purchase, with prices ranging from $167 to $11,000 (or 150 to 10,000 Swiss Franc). The packages include features like a tangible counterpart of the artwork, a meet & greet with the players, and a signed jersey, among others.

In a press statement, Sandra Caviezel, head of partnerships and sponsorship at Credit Suisse, expressed excitement about using NFTs as a source of finance to support the expansion of women’s football in Switzerland.

According to Caviezel, “These funds are earmarked for the promotion of young talent and will, on the one hand, provide direct support to the women’s national team and, on the other hand, be used for girls’ football projects.”

As mainstream companies and teams adopt Web3, the convergence of sports and NFTs is growing. Recently, there has been increased interest in women’s football in particular. Last month, the Spanish football team FC Barcelona collaborated with the well-known NFT collection World of Women to make a digital artwork honoring star player Alexia Putellas.
