As I’m sure you are well aware by now, the Euros are in full swing and football fever is sweeping its way across the continent. Football fever has also gripped the NFT world, more and more startups, artists and collaborations are popping up across the board to entice football fans into the NFT market.
Shirtum is one of the newest projects, which aim to bring football memorabilia into the 21st century. They are creating a digital museum where players can share experiences and highlights from their illustrious careers – the NFTs that they are selling will act as the next generation of memorabilia. Whilst it’s a thrill to get a match worn shirt, or a signed ball, bringing football memorabilia to the NFT space is a brilliant idea. Not only does it provide a variety of sporting souvenirs, it allows fans worldwide to get involved. Often international fans are unable to get involved with individual club competitions, once more, NFTs are bringing art and entertainment to the masses!
