Credit Suisse and the Swiss Football Association are launching a Women’s Football NFT Collection.
Swiss investment bank Credit Suisse is collaborating with the Swiss Football Association (SFA) to launch a collection of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) in support of women’s football.
According to a press release, the collection showcases a series of digital portraits of members of the Swiss Women’s National Team. All proceeds from the collection will be donated to the team, as well as other organizations focused on empowering female football players.
The 756 NFTs, created on the Ethereum blockchain, will be available for purchase starting on July 11 on CSX, Credit Suisse’s digital banking application.
In addition, the NFTs will be sold in three different packages, priced from 150 to 10,000 Swiss francs – approximately $167 to $11,000. The packages include various benefits such as a physical artwork, a meet and greet with the players, and a signed jersey.

Sandra Caviezel, head of partnerships and sponsorship at Credit Suisse, expressed her excitement about using NFTs as a means of funding to support the growth of women’s football in Switzerland.
“These funds will provide direct support to the women’s national team and will also be used for girls’ football projects, promoting young talent,” said Caviezel.
The intersection between sports and NFTs continues to expand as mainstream brands and teams embrace Web3. Women’s football, in particular, has recently gained interest. Last month, Spanish football team FC Barcelona partnered with the popular NFT collection World of Women to release a digital artwork honoring star player Alexia Putellas.
