NFTs For Good: Premier Event Auction for UEFA Foundation for Children

April 26, 2022

Any international gamers in the house? If so, you might already know about the Thonon Gaming Fest taking place on April 30th through May 1st at the Maison des Sports Thonon Les Bains. 800 players and 5,000 visitors will attend this esports event, where competitors will win prizes for playing games such as Fortnite, League of Legends, Rocket League and more.

One of the social partners to the Thonon event is the UEFA Foundation for Children, which supports and empowers children around the world through charitable donations.

As a special fundraiser, ORIGYN Foundation will auction off three digital football jerseys (soccer to our American friends) during the event. These select NFTs will be among the first minted by ORIGYN and all proceeds will be donated to the UEFA Foundation for Children.

Featured Footballers

The three NFT jerseys were created in partnership with two superstars of football in Europe:

Ivan Rakitić will be the subject of two of the digital jerseys available for auction. Rakitić is considered one of the greatest Croatian professional football players of all time, playing for La Liga club Sevilla, and has appeared at UEFA Euro 2008, 2012 and 2016. He is widely regarded as one of the best midfielders in the game.

Eugénie Le Sommer will be the subject of the third digital jersey. Le Sommer is one of the most highly decorated players in women’s football, having won 10 French domestic titles, as well as having won seven European Cups with her club Lyon. She is currently the all-time top scorer with 82 total goals.

The Auction

As a part of ORIGYN’s “NFTs for Good” initiative, the proceeds from this auction will go to the UEFA Foundation for Children to fund children’s rights in areas such as health, education and integration.
