It has now been confirmed that the first-ever Scottish Professional Football League (SPFL) NFTs are set to drop on ToppsNFT.

About the Topps x Scottish Professional Football League
Topps’ SPFL set marks the first-ever Topps NFT release of Scotland’s top-flight league with collectibles featuring star players, club crests and memorable highlights featuring match-day commentary from Paul Mitchell.
NFT cards in the release will feature all 12 SPFL Premiership clubs, rising stars, team captains, video highlights and club crest inserts, with at least one rare or higher video collectible per pack.
The ‘SPFL Shining Stars’ drop will be available for users to purchase on Wednesday, June 15th at 1 pm ET/6 pm BST exclusively on ToppsNFTs. The cards featured will range from Common to Legendary rarity. Each of the 5,000 packs available will be available for $25 per pack and feature seven collectives in each.
To clarify, the cinch Scottish Professional Football League (SPFL) is the national men’s football league in Scotland. It has 4 divisions: the Premiership, Championship, League 1, and League 2. To clarify, for this drop, users will be able to purchase NFTs from the Premiership only.
The Premiership saw Celtic crowned as Champions for the 2021-22 season, making it their 10th League win in 11 years. In fact, they were faulted only by their rival Rangers’ historic 55th league title in the season prior. Historically, Rangers and Celtic, who make up the ‘Old Firm’ or ‘Glasgow Derby’ have been dominant, with Hearts, Hibs, Aberdeen, and Motherwell often challenging for 3rd-6th place with European football incentives in play.
Also, this season, Rangers made a great European run as they reached the Europa League final, UEFA’s second-tier competition of European club football. They only just lost against Eintracht Frankfurt in Sevilla in a penalty shootout.
