When SportsEdTV launched its unique multi-sport NFT art collection momentum in the sports category was soon joined by its ally The United States Sports Academy.

The Academy, celebrating its 50th Anniversary in 2022  which will be NFT memorialized by famous Australian painter Charles Billich, announced the commission here.

The piece depicts a globe with athletes in a wide array of sports poses above the Academy's main entrance. Academy friends and family will immediately recognize the institution's unique architecture, signature "Tribute to the Human Spirit" mural, and greenery found around the academy campus.

Billich’s work is entitled “Academy 2022” and can be viewed here.  

Recently SportsEdTV launched its first NFT sports art collection, it described the effort this way.

SportsEdTV, the world’s largest assembly of free curated sports instruction has launched its first stage collection of sports-specific art as NFT’s on OpenSea, the world’s first and largest digital marketplace for crypto collectibles.

NFT's (non-fungible tokens) provide iron-clad indestructible proof of ownership and NFT Mania, according to the Financial Times, has captured the imagination of crypto enthusiasts and is rapidly going mainstream.

“Like the sports idol posters we put on our walls as kids, the digital generation has NFT’s to collect and inspire.  Ours are affordable and will feature NFT’s in numerous sports, and we are directing portions of any proceeds to our charitable foundation,” said Robert Mazzucchelli, Founder, and Chairman, SportsEdTV.

SportsEdTV NFT Collection joins a sports category on the OpenSea marketplace that features images running from Gronk-to-Gherig and other NFT’s of sports, heroes, and events.  Some have developed amazing value, not unlike trading cards.

“We’re joining the likes of Nike, Twitter, Warner Brothers, in NFT projects and are adding value to our affordables by linking purchases to memberships and SportsEdTV’s upcoming loyalty awards,” added Victor Bergonzoli, CEO SportsEdTV.
