Manchester City Football Club has announced its sixth collaborative NFT drop, created in partnership with Power of Women. The collection, titled “I am EMPOWERED,” celebrates International Women’s Day 2023 and consists of five digital art pieces that showcase the passion and diversity of women in football.
The NFT drop is a significant step towards celebrating diversity and empowerment in the sports industry, and Manchester City is taking the lead. The football club is continuing to expand its presence and community in the NFT space and has chosen to collaborate with Power of Women to create this unique collection.
The collection features five unique pieces titled I Am Powerful, I Am Proud, I Am Fearless, I Am Courage, and I Am Resilient. NFT artist, Leah Sams, has created these pieces in her bold and beautiful signature style. The artwork showcases the passion and diversity of women in football, highlighting their strength, resilience, and fearlessness.
The collection also features the uniquely designed Man City x PUMA Pankhurst kit range, inspired by Mancunian Emmeline Pankhurst. Manchester City’s men’s team will wear the kit during their warm-up and walkout at their upcoming Premier League football match, while Manchester City Women will play in the kit for their FA Women’s Super League fixture.
All proceeds from the NFT collection’s sales will go to the Football Club’s official charity, City in the Community. Specifically, the City Girls programme will benefit from the funds. The programme provides safe spaces for young women to engage in football and aims to empower them to achieve their full potential.
The I am EMPOWERED collection will be available on OpenSea on Wednesday, 8th March, and is expected to attract Manchester City fans, NFT collectors, and art enthusiasts alike. The NFT drop is a celebration of diversity and empowerment, and Manchester City Football Club is proud to lead the way in the sports industry.
