With the collection launching on November 18, and Cristiano Ronaldo getting ready to travel to Qatar with Portugal, we spoke with the great man himself to get his thoughts on his NFT collection, and this winter’s feast of international football.

On the NFT Collection

Binance: How does it feel to have your own NFT? 

Ronaldo: I worked closely with Binance to develop a collection that gives me a special way to not only connect with my fans, but to bring them into the game in a new and deeper way while rewarding them for their support. 

Binance: Does it feel like it’s a legacy in a way?

Ronaldo: My fans have been such a huge part of my success and I’m passionate about building a fan-centric economy to allow fans to own a unique piece of sports history. Together with Binance, I want to welcome fans into Web3 through the world of NFTs.

On playing for Portugal

Binance: Portugal has a great squad. Do you rank yourselves as amongst the favourites for the tournament ahead in Qatar?

Ronaldo: We have an incredibly talented squad, but there are no easy games. We will treat each opponent with the fullest of respect, and hope to deliver a tournament performance that matches the ability of this exciting team. We’re ready to make our country proud.

Binance: What is the key for Portugal to go far in the tournament?

Ronaldo: You can’t take anything for granted at this level. But we will work hard, stay focused, and do everything we can to achieve our goal which is to win. We have a responsibility to be positive, and fight as a team to win our matches. There’s a lot of talent in the squad.
