What we know so far about these NFTs
The Leeds United Football Club NFTs feature the exclusive “no war” shirts worn before the Club’s match against Manchester City. Each NFT is in the form of a card detailing the front and back of a player’s shirt, and that player’s signature. Furthermore, each NFT is a one-of-one, which means that only one of each NFT will be available at this particular time.
In addition to the NFT, holders can access physical rewards. These include two hospitality tickets for the Leeds versus Brighton match, a pitchside tour with the club’s legends, and the ability to attend an open training session. The NFTs are currently available on MakersPlace. Interested individuals do not need crypto wallets to mint these NFTs, although ETH is accepted.
Recently, the Ukrainian government launched a website to receive NFT and crypto donations. So far, the collection has 303 NFTs.
