CONMEBOL and Crypto.com will develop NFT’s associated with the Intellectual Property of the CONMEBOL Libertadores Competition on Crypto.com’s NFT platform.
“CONMEBOL is always working to be a leading and cutting-edge institution. We are sure that Crypto.com upholds that same philosophy, as the industry leader. We are convinced that this partnership will be to the benefit of South American football and also for this thriving company,” said José Astigarraga, Secretary General of CONMEBOL.

“The CONMEBOL Libertadores is the peak of South American club football – this exciting, beautiful game of highs and lows brings us together like nothing else”, said Kris Marszalek, co-founder and CEO of Crypto.com. “Our research shows Latin America is leading the way in embracing cryptocurrency, with 40% of Latin Americans saying they are interested in buying crypto in the near future. Naturally we were eager to support the continent’s most important football competition, adding to our world-class portfolio of sports sponsorships”.
