Fresh off the first jersey NFTs auctioned off through our “NFTs for Good” initiative, ORIGYN has more exciting news to share!
ORIGYN Foundation is proud to announce that it has partnered with the world’s largest charity football match, Soccer Aid for UNICEF, for the 2022 game in London.
“We’re delighted to welcome ORIGYN Foundation on board as a new partner — what they’re doing in the NFT space is incredible, and we look forward to working together for many years to come.” — Kenneth Shepherd, Co-Founder of Soccer Aid for UNICEF
“After launching our ‘NFTs for Good initiative’ with the UEFA foundation for Children, which aims to help kids around the world, Soccer Aid for UNICEF was another natural fit for us, and so we’re delighted to be signed up as a partner this year.” — Daniel Haudenschild, CEO of ORIGYN Entreprise

Also back is long standing host and UNICEF UK Ambassador Dermot O’Leary, who will be joined once again by touchline reporter, Alex Scott and Maya Jama, who is back in the pundit seat.
The line-up is further strengthened by a number of football stars, including Andriy Shevchenko, Gary Neville, Teddy Sheringham, Jamie Carragher, David James, Fara Williams, Patrice Evra, Roberto Carlos, Cafu and Joe Cole. Harry Redknapp returns, but this time as manager of the England team, while legendary manager Arsene Wenger takes over for the Soccer Aid World XI FC side.
Soccer Aid for UNICEF is working hard to give children around the world the care-free, play-filled childhoods they are entitled to. The money raised from this year’s game could help UNICEF provide vaccines, fight malnutrition and provide safe spaces to protect them in times of crisis.
