Trabzonspor, a Turkish football club in the Süper Lig, the top tier of Turkish football, has formed a partnership with Capital Block, the only dedicated sports and entertainment non-fungible token (NFT) agency.

Capital Block will now be working with the club to develop an NFT strategy for fans of the football team.

The sports and entertainment NFT agency will initially help Trabzonspor deliver two NFT drops during the next couple of months. One of these NFTs will be dedicated to the club’s previous championships titles, as they have won six Süper Lig titles and were the first non-Istanbul-based club to win the league.

Capital Block will also develop an NFT roadmap for the club as well as providing guidance on how to build an NFT strategy based around its fans.

Trabzonspor is currently top of the Süper Lig.

More Turkish football clubs aware of the advantages of NFTs

Tim Mangnall, CEO of Capital Block said: “We are really excited to announce this partnership with Trabzonspor, a fantastic football team followed by passionate fans.

“Trabzonspor fans should now be looking out for the club’s first NFT drop. And with the club in such a strong position in the Süper Lig, we will hope to be celebrating at the end of the current season with another NFT drop.

“With more Turkish football clubs becoming aware of the advantages of having their own NFT series, we are looking forward to the many new opportunities that will be created for fan engagement for Turkish football fans. This will also increase general understanding of the significance of NFTs in the wider European football market.”

Serdar Ekrem Şirin, Trabzonspor member of board, said: “Trabzonspor has taken a step into the NFT world in what is an already successful season. By cooperating with Capital Block, banding together Blockchain Technology and sports, we will very soon be presenting Trabzonspor’s cultural history to our supporters on a digital platform. I am extremely delighted to setting the right foundations in the right season for Trabzonspor.”
