Wimbledon turns 100 this year and are launching a unique NFT collection to celebrate the occasion. In 1922 the All-England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (AELTC) moved to a new home on Church Road. Over the years this has also become a landmark and the spiritual home of tennis.
There are 10 NFTs in total, each representing a decade of tennis on the famous Center Court. Each of these NFTs has 100 issues. This means there are a total of 1000 NFTs at £500 each. Starting today, you can vote to express your interest in the collection in The Centenary Collection.
Wimbledon NFT collection is an ace!
This NFT collection marks a century of world-class tennis at Wimbledon and promised to deliver an excellent and historic collection of NFT digital art. To ensure they highlight the tremendous amount of history that has taken place at the tennis institution, the AELTC is working with Glorious.
Significantly, Glorious is an eco-friendly digital art studio and NFT marketplace. As curators of the project, they have also overseen the process of immortalizing the last hundred years of court proceedings on the blockchain. In addition, they must look at the culture, art, fashion and events of each decade.
“Wimbledon is loved by one of the world’s largest and most engaged fanbases, many of whom will already have an appreciation for digital art. With these fans in mind, Glorious has worked with the AELTC to create a masterful Centenary Collection that commemorates Center Court’s great history and legacy,” said Chief Executive Tim Harper.
