To celebrate Manchester City’s wider activity celebrating the tenth anniversary of its first Premier League title and its iconic 93:20 moment. The 93:20 NFT collection will be available on MakersPlace NFT marketplace on May 13 2022, Friday UK time.
What is the iconic 93:20 moment?
Late into the game against QPR, Manchester City were losing 2-1 and fans were starting to lose hope. Approaching 91:14, two minutes into injury time, Edin Dzeko rose and buried his header beyond the keeper to level the scores. Going into the 93 minute mark, fans and Man City’s staff were ready to close the game when suddenly, Sergio Aguero struck the goal. Man City fans erupted in cheer.
About the 93:20 inspired NFT collection
The 93:20 collection designed by Musketon will be limited to 120 pairs of the limited-edition Nrgy Blue and Green Glare boots and pre-match jerseys with a white base, light blue hoops and navy and gold touches that have been created to pay homage to the goal. The NFTs will also represent Man City’s rich football history and feature Puma’s ULTRA football boots, which will be released on the same day of the NFT drop. The Puma boot is in the same colour as Sergio Agureo’s original Puma v1.11 football boots. The footbed also features the famous ‘Agueroooooooo!’ line from the goal that will live on forever.
