Credit Suisse has made a significant stride in its support for women’s football in Switzerland by partnering with the Swiss Football Association (SFA) to unveil an innovative NFT art collection.
This collaboration aims to not only promote the sport but also provide crucial financial backing for the national team players and aspiring young female football talent in the country.
By harnessing the power of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), Credit Suisse and the SFA are set to revolutionize the way art and sports intersect, creating new opportunities for growth and development.
This strategic initiative demonstrates Credit Suisse’s commitment to diversifying its offerings and expanding into the dynamic world of NFTs, establishing the bank as a trailblazer in this emerging digital landscape.
Credit Suisse Bets Big On NFTs
The innovative collaboration showcases 756 digital art portraits of Swiss women’s national team players and presents a unique opportunity for fans and art enthusiasts to contribute to the growth of the sport.
The NFT collection will be available for purchase exclusively through Credit Suisse’s CSX app, starting from July 11 and continuing until August 31, as stated on the bank’s website.
Streamlining the user experience and facilitating engagement with the evolving NFT landscape, Daniel Gorrera, the head of digital assets Switzerland at Credit Suisse, emphasized the deliberate design choices made for this offering.

Gorrera said in a statement shared with The Block:
“When we designed the offering, we consciously attempted to make it easy for the user to engage in the evolving NFT world.”
The collaboration not only introduces an engaging new way to appreciate art but also lays the foundation for the innovative utilization of digital assets in novel financing and service models.
Going Above And Beyond NFTs
The NFT collection goes beyond digital art, offering additional perks to purchasers that extend beyond the virtual realm. According to a press release, buyers of these unique NFTs will have the opportunity to receive physical artwork, signed jerseys, and exclusive meet-and-greet sessions with the talented players featured in the collection.
This combination of digital and physical rewards further enhances the value and exclusivity of the NFTs, making them a must-have for avid fans and collectors alike.
To bring this visionary project to fruition, Credit Suisse enlisted the expertise of renowned Swiss artist Daniela Filippelli. Through her artistic talent and creativity, Filippelli has breathed life into the collection, infusing it with a unique and captivating aesthetic.
The NFTs within the collection, minted on the Ethereum blockchain, offer a secure and regulated environment for buyers to engage with these digital assets. This ensures the authenticity and provenance of each NFT, establishing trust and confidence among collectors and enthusiasts
