The premier English club Manchester City has partnered with Puma to pay tribute to Sergio Aguero's title-winning goal in the 2011/2012 season and reward its fans utilizing NFTs. The historic moment of scoring the winning goal 20 seconds after 93 minutes against Queens Park Rangers 3-2, leaving its life-long rival Manchester United to bite the dust.
The digital art pieces within the drop showcase Sergio Aguero's Puma boot with the '93:20' inscription as well as “Manchester City are still alive here” commentary. The footbed also features the famous ‘Agueroooooooo!’ celebrating the historic moment. The artsy NFTs were processed by a renowned artist Musketon.
“The 93:20 piece artistically displays a unique clockwork environment with cogs and Manchester City artwork within Sergio Aguero’s goal-scoring PUMA boot,” Manchester City commented on the NFT drop.
Musketon has also created Puma’s Ultra Football Boots NFTs scheduled to drop on MakersPlace on May 13th as part of the 93:20 celebration. The limited edition of 120 pairs was designed with the Puma v1.11, which Aguero wore after bringing victory to his team.
“We are incredibly pleased to be launching our unique 93:20 piece in collaboration with PUMA, following the success of our three collections to date. This exciting piece continues to demonstrate our ongoing commitment to the NFT and blockchain space, and shows our eagerness to collaborate with renowned talented creators, as well as with our club partners,” Dransfield, Chief Strategy Officer at City Football Group claimed.
It's worth noting, that this commemorative NFT drop timed to the 10th anniversary of the groundbreaking '93:20' strike is the fourth one in the joint piggy bank of Manchester City and Puma.
