Are you playing in the world’s largest football tournament this winter? No? Don’t worry, it’s not too late to realise your footballing dream. OneFootball is excited to announce a partnership that enables thousands of fans the opportunity to be part of the biggest footballing event in the world. You’ve been called up! Welcome to Cool Cats FC (“Football Club”)!

What is Cool Cats FC, you ask? Well, listen up. Cool Cats FC is a NFT collection created by Cool Cats, one of the original Ethereum-based blue-chip collections, in collaboration with leading Web3 operator Animoca Brands and yours truly, OneFootball. The 4,000-strong football collection consists of 125 NFTs per each of the 32 participating countries. For the first time, Cool Cats enthusiasts and football lovers are joining forces to celebrate the world’s largest football tournament and getting you closer to the action than ever before.

But how does it work? Anyone who secures an NFT owns a tradeable, dynamic digital collectible that evolves in both look and feel depending on how well the team it represents performs at the actual tournament. So, don’t forget to check on your digital asset after your team advances to the next round to see how it has changed! That’s not all, though. If you complete a creative challenge before minting your NFT, it becomes eligible for rewards if the team advances through the tournament stages. How cool is that?

And check out the rewards on offer! Exclusive merchandise, VIP footballing experiences, and other digital collectibles are up for grabs, some involving top professional football players such as David Alaba, Alisson Becker, Antony, Mats Hummels, James Rodriguez, and Raphina. How do signed and match-worn jerseys, stadium visits, match tickets, and in-person meet-and-greets sound? Amazing, I know! The range of digital collectible rewards includes Cool Cats FC, Cool Cats, and Cool Pets NFTs, as well as OneFootball Digital Video Moment (DVM) packs.

You think those rewards are awesome? Then wait until you hear about the grand prize! Cool Cats, Animoca Brands, and OneFootball will send the lucky winners on a trip to Milan — four-star hotel included — for a mind-blowing, once-in-a-lifetime experience. You are not only invited to attend an AC Milan match at the mighty San Siro Stadium as a VIP, but also to private tours of the grounds and the club museum. And now you better sit down. You also meet one of the world’s best footballers IRL for a Q&A session! Can you believe it?!?

Oh, and don’t worry if you are not among the holders of an advancing team NFT or not lucky enough to mint a Cool Cats FC. You still have the opportunity to earn rewards through community events such as predicting the winning team of marquee matches as well as other mini games — these games are accessible by everyone! We’re all in this together, after all. The ultimate aim of the project is to unite football and Web3 communities across the globe via the world’s largest football event, promoting and educating about true digital ownership. Don’t merely watch the fun, own it.
