- Manchester City has partnered with Puma to launch an NFT art commemorating Sergio Aguero’s historic goal.
- Aguero scored a memorable title-winning goal against QPR in the final match of the 2011/2012 EPL season.
- The 93:20 artwork illustrates the City legend’s last-minute strike 20 seconds inside 94 minutes and deep in injury time.
English Premier League champions Manchester City are giving their fans one of the best throwbacks ever after teaming up with Puma to launch a commemorative NFT art for Sergio Aguero’s title-winning goal in the 2011/2012 season.
The City legend scored a goal 20 seconds after 93 minutes to win the match against Queens Park Rangers 3-2, subsequently snatching the league title from the jaws of their fierce rivals Manchester United.
The iconic ‘93:20’ moment comes following the success of City’s previous three NFT drops. The premier league holders have brought in the expertise and ingenuity of digital art creator Musketon to bring his unique visual artistic style to 93:20.
“The 93:20 piece artistically displays a unique clockwork environment with cogs and Manchester City artwork within Sergio Aguero’s goal-scoring PUMA boot,” City wrote in a blog announcing the NFT drop.
Musketon has also added Puma’s Ultra Football Boots scheduled to be released this Friday, May 13 as part of the 93:20 celebrations. The boots have also been designed with the Puma v1.11, which Aguero wore when he scored the historic goal.
The drop includes a limited edition of 120 pairs created to commemorate the goal.
Commenting on the NFT art and the significance of the commemorative goal, Don Dransfield, Chief Strategy Officer at City Football Group said: “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 added.
On the other hand, Matthias Baeumer General Manager of Teamsport at PUMA commented: “We are delighted to be able to collaborate with Manchester City on this latest NFT collection. Not only does this activity allow PUMA to join together with the club and celebrate a special, iconic moment but also allows us to share our latest products with audiences in an innovative, new and exciting way.”
Craig Palmer, MakersPlace co-founder and CEO lauded the partnership and commitment shown by the three entities saying it illustrates the remarkable possibilities that non-fungible tokens can create.
“MakersPlace is proud to partner with organizations like Manchester City and PUMA, who champion innovation and continue to push the NFT space forward through spotlighting and celebrating the digital creativity of artists like Musketon,” he added.
