Manchester City to release digital collectibles through multi-year partnership with Quidd

Manchester City Football Club, part of England’s Premier League, is teaming up with Quidd, a subsidiary of Animoca Brands, for several years, to create and introduce digital collectibles along with fresh promotions and unique fan interactions.

Quidd will produce and unveil exclusive digital merchandise, such as collectible cards, granting access to genuine world activities.

In a recent blog post, Tom Boyle, the Vice-President of Global Partnerships Marketing and Operations at City Football Group, announced a new collaboration.

“We’re excited to help transform the traditional football pastime of cards and collectibles in a new digital age alongside Quidd, enabling us to further connect with our fans across the globe. We look forward to working together on creating new digital experiences and games for our fans to enjoy.”

Starting May 2, the initial collaboration product will be available as a set of customized digital player cards numbering 200. These cards can be obtained or bought by the first 10,000 Man City fans, who will be rewarded with two additional “For the Fans” packs.

Manchester City fans who earn digital perks by opening Quidd packs can additionally join physical activities and buy merchandise and hospitality deals. They might even get unique chances, such as attending a private training session with the professional team at City Football Academy.
