The Club Sportif Sedan Ardennes (CSSA) is to launch an original, innovative and exciting project. This popular soccer club, with an illustrious past and a promising future, sports the Ardennes boar as its legendary symbol and mascot.
The NFT collection is made up of 11,011 characters in 5 categories, featuring the club's mascot. Hand drawn by our designer and then randomly generated by an algorithm from 230 attributes, making each CSSA Boars unique.
Buying a CSSA Boars NFT is not simply acquitting a unique piece of digital art. It means becoming part of an exciting adventure, participate in the development of a football club and finance this development, with access to a community of «crypto supporters» and being rewarded with gifts and evolving benefits in the future!
Sports fans in general or soccer fans in particular and crypto collectors: Don't stay on the sidelines, be part of the action and get on the field!
Stored as ERC-721 tokens on the Ethereum blockchain and hosted on IPFS.
CSSA is one of France’s oldest soccer clubs, formed in 1919. It has built up an exceptional record of success, reaching its peak in the 1950s and 1960s and at the end of the 1990s.
Known for its competitive and team spirit, rigor and humility not forgetting its enthusiasm, CSSA has always conveyed its strong values, as well as being associated with the desire to be resolutely innovative, reflecting the image of a simple but ambitious club.
Solidly anchored in the current trends, the integration of blockchain and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) into the club's vision was therefore a natural choice for Marc Dubois, President of the CSSA.
Emblem or lucky charm, the Ardennes boar represented in our CSSA Boars collection will be the incarnation of the CSSA in the crypto universe. Tomorrow, our mascot will be able to take part in digital football matches and why not face other mascots from other clubs... An innovative way to bring a symbolic character to life in football 3.0!
There are 5 categories of CSSA Boars, each representing a key position on the soccer pitch, with special rarity attributes spread throughout the collection.

An NFT, or non-fungible token, is a unique encrypted digital file, including a property right. It establishes an unbreakable link between an item – digital and/or physical object – and its owner, through a storage technology or blockchain, which validates and performs digital transactions.
An NFT contains all the information related to the certification of an item, such as the name of the work, artist’s name, number of prints, size, medium, etc. This data is verifiable by everyone within the blockchain, so the value is even stronger than a traditional certificate of authenticity.
An NFT is therefore an encrypted, secure and unchangeable title of ownership attached to an item. It attests to the rarity and authenticity of an asset – physical and/or digital.
CSSA Boars are 11,011 unique NFTs generated from over 230 attributes. No two are alike and represent the mascot of one of the oldest soccer clubs in France, the Ardennes Boar. They are divided into 5 categories – defender, midfielder, striker, keeper and staff. When you get a boar, you gain access to exclusive offers and benefits reserved just for members. Check out our roadmap to see what's in store for you!
For the first time, a French soccer club is launching its own NFT collection, based on its own mascot’s image, the Ardennes boar. So there is a real brand behind the project. What's more, it's a club with an illustrious past, particularly popular with soccer fans.
Moreover, the collection is supported by the expert and multidisciplinary team at Coinception, a communication agency specialized in NFT, a key stakeholder in the project.
