This digital asset makes it possible to associate a digital object such as an image, a video, a sound extract, etc. to a title deed validated by the principles of the blockchain. The NFT therefore offers the possibility of establishing digital scarcity.
The newfound popularity of NFTs translates into numbers: the market literally exploded with record growth of 21,350% last year. (source: NFT Markets Annual Report 2021 NonFungible.com, January 2022).
And the phenomenon continues to grow. Not a week goes by without a brand launching its own project.
Today it is the Club Sportif Sedan Ardennes (CSSA) which plays the avant-garde by creating the first NFT collection based on the mascot of a football club.
An original, innovative and exciting project… that of a popular football club with a prestigious past, a promising future, and its legendary symbol, the wild boar of the Ardennes.
A partnership agreement was thus signed, via its subsidiary Metaplus, between the CSSA and Coinception, an agency specializing in the creation of NFT devices for brands, which manages the operational aspect of the project.
“Through its values, the CSSA is much more than a football club. Truly rooted in trends, the integration of non-fungible tokens into the vision of the club has naturally imposed itself on us. We are delighted to share a such an experience with our community of supporters.”
Marc Dubois, President of the CSSA
100% unique CSSA Boars
The Club Sportif Sedan Ardennes (CSSA) created a surprise by creating an NFT collection featuring 11,011 characters, bearing the image of the club’s mascot.
This number, determined in advance, is a nod to the 2 teams of 11 players on the field (11 against 11). It also echoes the fully committed multidisciplinary team of 11 people who are dedicated to the success of this project. 11… like the 11 players on the pitch!
Each CSSA Boars is unique, since it is hand-drawn by the designer and randomly generated using an algorithm from 150 attributes. These attributes (accessory, eye color, football shirts, etc.) give each NFT a unique character, and determine its value in the collection according to their level of rarity.
Another originality of the project that will appeal to football lovers: the collection is divided into 5 categories of CSSA Boards, each representing a key position in the field and a specific quality (endurance, concentration, technicality, agility, strategy).
Each supporter will thus be able to find “his” wild boar among the proposed teams:
• Defender – 2,500 NFTs (0.05 ETH): the central defender and the full-back represent the first defense before the goalkeeper.
• Midfielder – 2,500 NFTs (0.10 ETH): defensive midfielder, torchbearer or attacker, they have stamina to defend and attack.
• Goalkeeper – 2,500 NFTs (0.15 ETH): a key role in a match since you must never let the ball pass beyond the line.
• Striker – 2,500 NFTs (0.20 ETH): centre-forward or striker, supporting striker or winger, all have a strategic position.
• Staff – 1,011 NFTs (0.25 ETH): trainer, physical trainer, doctors, manager… are the essential players in the shadows.
A collection that makes you want to put on your crampons
By investing in a CSSA Boars NFT, supporters not only buy a unique digital work of art, they also join the few “happy few” who will be able to enjoy a VIP experience.
CSSA Boars provide access to a community of “crypto supporters” who will be rewarded with benefits that evolve over time. Gifts will be regularly awarded to holders; they will take part in a preview of exclusive virtual events or will have privileged access to capsule collections on the occasion of future collaborations… But that’s not all, the community will participate in all future developments, for example by voting on strategic choices.
Football lovers will truly be won over by this participatory project and its long-term vision!
How to get a CSSA Boars?
From April, the launch date of the project, everyone can try to obtain their place on a whitelist in order to access the private sale which will take place on May 17, 2022. It will allow the CSSA Boars to be purchased at a preferential rate.
CSSA Boars Defender: 0.03 ETH instead of 0.05 ETH
CSSA Boars Midfielder: 0.07 ETH instead of 0.10 ETH
CSSA Boars Guardian: 0.10 ETH instead of 0.15 ETH
CSSA Boars Attacker: 0.15 ETH instead of 0.20 ETH
CSSA Boars Staff: 0.20 ETH instead of 0.25 ETH
But be careful, only 2202 places are available for this preview!
The next day, May 18, the public sale will be open to everyone. For the biggest fans, a discount of 0.025 ETH will be applied from 3 NFTs purchased.
You will then have to wait until Friday, May 20 to find out which CSSA Boars have been awarded to buyers and find out its level of rarity. Indeed, out of fairness, the distribution of works is done randomly, as in a sort of artistic lotto.
The (big) little extra: those on the whitelist also participate in a lottery for Airdrop. In June, following a draw, 11 of them will have the chance to receive a free NFT.
About Club Sportif Sedan Ardennes (CSSA)
Founded in 1919, the Club Sportif Sedan Ardennes (CSSA) is a veritable institution that enjoys a strong capital sympathy in the eyes of the public.
One of the oldest clubs in French football has built an exceptional record. After having been French Champion of D2 (1955) and D3 (1991), winner of two French Cups (1956 and 1961), the club has a rich and fascinating history. Between 1954 and 1975, the CSSA gave fifteen internationals and two coaches to the French team, as well as internationals to many African teams.
“Les Sangliers” have welcomed many future talents (Luc Sonor, Mustapha Dahleb…) and prodigious players such as René Charrier, Ulrich Ramé, Olivier Quint, Maxime Fulgenzy (the record holder for the number of league matches) or the excellent scorer Claude Breny (149 goals).
Combativeness, rigor, solidarity, humility and enthusiasm: the CSSA has always conveyed strong values, associated with the desire to be part of a resolutely innovative posture, like a simple but ambitious club.
“Investing in a CSSA Boars NFT is investing in a project for the future carried out by a football club that is more than a century old! » Marc Dubois, President of the CSSA
