English Football Association is actively seeking a long term NFT partner

Football teams have gradually entered the world of crypto and blockchain, now it is the turn of the England Football Association. This news comes from a statement from the organization indicating that it is in the process of developing a new NFT platform.

As part of that same statement, to get it off the ground, the FA is looking for a long-term token platform partner; publish a request for proposals (RFP) on its website.

Although it sounds rather mundane, the tender itself is a veritable purse of exclusive FA intellectual property, and a rare opportunity for any partner to immortalize English football on the blockchain:

“Intellectual property [IP] featured in the tender to produce NFTs include current England player names and nicknames, authorized England match images, player images, photographs and curated content, three lions logos and lionesses, the FA and St George’s Park logos, images of FA-owned artefacts such as England Caps, and pictures and images of St George’s Park.

The Football Association‘s commercial director – Navin Singh – has doubled down on the opportunity for any partner looking for the organisation:

“It’s an exciting opportunity for us to build a new, long-term platform around the FA and England teams brands to benefit the game.”

He also continued to underpin the value proposition for fans, particularly at a time of uncomfortable conversations regarding the funding of some of the FA’s illustrious clubs:

“As a non-profit organization we are always exploring progressive and viable ways to capitalize on new technology to help grow our fan base and provide much needed investment in the English game.”

Of course, with the successes of the England women’s team (Lionesses), it’s important to note that this platform will benefit both the men’s and women’s divisions.
