This latest release is part of an ongoing multi-year partnership between Ronaldo and Binance, which began in November 2022 with the footballer’s debut NFT collection.

The first collection showcased iconic moments from Ronaldo’s career, with the rarest items selling for nearly $10,000.

Previous NFT events featuring Ronaldo have included unique perks, such as inviting holders to play football with the legend himself as part of a Binance promotion.

However, the partnership between Ronaldo and Binance has faced legal challenges. In December 2023, Ronaldo was sued in a $1 billion class-action lawsuit in a United States district court in Florida. T

he plaintiffs alleged that Ronaldo “promoted, assisted in, and/or actively participated in the offer and sale of unregistered securities in coordination with Binance” and that he should have known about Binance’s involvement in such activities.

The lawsuit against Ronaldo stemmed from Binance’s previous legal issues, which culminated in founder Changpeng “CZ” Zhao being found guilty in the U.S. of enabling fraud. Zhao was sentenced in April 2024 to serve four months in detention for his alleged role in a money laundering scheme.
