GARET BALE LAUNCHES FIRST
NFT WITH STUDIO BLUP

The drop released exclusively on crypto.com and includes four collectables in two forms: a 3D animation depicting one of Bale’s most iconic goals — his bicycle-kick go-ahead strike against Liverpool in the 2018 UEFA Champions League final — as well as a series of rotating poster-like images. The latter includes three NFTs featuring a collage of photos from throughout Bale’s accomplished career — offered in increasing rarity.

Creative Director DINES on collaborating with Gareth, ‘A total dream! I’ve loved him since his Southampton rookie days, where I studied, and have always admired how he became the world’s best — and stayed at the top to become a British sporting legend. When I found out — by my good friends Edward and Eliot at ICM Stellar — that Gareth wanted to move into [the NFT] space, I dropped everything and began creating.’

Whenever we get to introduce a globally celebrated athlete to the NFT space, and welcome their fans into our community, it’s a historic moment that we really cherish. We’re honored to work with Gareth and Dines on this collection celebrating his storied career, and to do so in support of such a worthy cause makes it that much more special.”
