Experience The Best of Como With Football Club, Como 1907

The winner of the auction will get two lifetime tickets to the VIP section and a once-in-a-lifetime travel experience around the city.

The Italian football club Como 1907 has launched an innovative charity auction to raise funds for the humanitarian organisation EMERGENCY. The fundraiser event is held through 30 April on OpenSea, where donors can bid for a non-fungible token (NFT). Starting bid for the NFT begins at 2 Ethereum, or approximately US$5,000, while the value of the prizes exceeds US$100,000.

The NFT entitled, “tribuna d’onore a vita” (or “VIP tickets for life”), was “inspired by the Como football club and the city it calls home.” The press release further adds, “In recognition of Como’s rich history of success as both a city and a football club, a golden ticket emerges from the depths of the deep blue lake as a nod to the league championship-ascent of the club in 2021 and the promise of a bright future.”

Dennis Wise, chief executive officer of Como 1907, stated, “Sports franchises have a significant influence on our society and a tremendous responsibility. While we have seen many in the sports industry dive into NFTs as the newest way to make a profit, we are hoping to use this blockchain technology to make a difference for those who need it most,” continued Wise. “Our Como NFT may change hands over the years with EMERGENCY will benefit with every transaction.”
