The 117-year-old club in Tuscany will transform it’s stadium into a piece of digital art with a public sale of NFT collectibles. FC Siena will create 3,806 unique artifacts that will be drawn from Mystery Boxes. 99 of those NFTs will become part of the new stadium’s architecture in the form of 3D printed statues and permanent digital displays.
To participate, one have to buy a Magic Box. After the purchase the Magic Box will randomly transform into one of the NFTs.
Armen Gazaryan, president of FC Siena:
“We are extremely inspired with the idea of connecting our legendary past with out passion for winning and reaching our goals in the future. Siena NFT is the first step on our way to this new vision. It will become the hearthstone of the future achievements. The unity of Italian art traditions and modern progressive technologies opens up new horizons for us, for our country and for the entire global football community. And we’re going to show the world what Siena is worth!”

FC Siena was established in 1904 in the very heart of Tuscany.
By the end of 2023 Siena will have completed their revolutionary subterranean stadium with a capacity for 20,000 spectators. Some of the art pieces of the future stadium will be phygitalized, meaning they have both a physical and digital version. They’ll be available both as NFT showpiece items and within the stadium itself, seen by all the fans. This will be the first phygitalized stadium in the entire world.
99 NFT collectibles will be displayed prominently within the new stadium
11 player statues
Player avatars will be created on a 3D-printer and placed in the stadium as architectural elements. The winners will receive the digital NFT copy as well as ownership of the real-life counterpart. While Siena is finishing the new stadium, the statues will be reside in the current stadium!
Each statue is not a random figure. The body positions of all 11 players are carefully designed by NFT-artist Anton Zanimonets, who selected them on real archive photos of ACN Siena games.
Spots on Wall of Fame
This will be a permanent wall of 55 individual displays. Owners of one of these tokens will be able to load any image on it: an avatar, a message to the entire world, or even an advertisement for their startup.
Time slots on the Big Screen
The owners of these tokens will be able to project an image of their choosing for the whole stadium to see once per season in time increments of 10, 30, or 60 seconds. This can be anything from sharing a work of art, an advertisement, or even a marriage proposal.
In addition to the phygitalized objects, there are NFT collectible player cards that come in three levels of rarity: gold, silver, and bronze.
