English Premier League champions Manchester City are gifting their fans one of the best throwbacks in history after teaming up with Puma to launch NFT artwork commemorating Sergio Agüero’s title-winning goal in the 2011/2012 season.
The City legend scored a goal 20 seconds into the 93rd minute to win the match against Queens Park Rangers 3-2, subsequently snatching the league title from the clutches of bitter rivals Manchester United.

Kun Agüero’s iconic moment
The iconic “93:20” moment comes on the heels of City’s previous three successful NFT defeats. The Premier League champions have called on the expertise and ingenuity of digital art creator Musketon to bring his unique visual art style to 93:20.
“The 93:20 piece artistically showcases a unique clockwork environment with Manchester City gear and artwork inside Sergio Aguero’s goal-scoring PUMA boot,” City wrote in a blog post to announce the launch of the NFT.
Musketon has also added Puma’s Ultra soccer boots which will go on sale this Friday, May 13 as part of the 93:20 celebrations. The boots have also been designed with the Puma v1.11, which Aguero was wearing when he scored the historic goal.
The launch includes a limited edition of 120 pairs created to commemorate the goal.
Don Dransfield, strategy director at City Football Group, commented on NFT‘s artwork and the significance of the commemorative goal: “We are incredibly pleased to launch our unique 93:20 piece in partnership with PUMA, following the success of our three collections to date.”
“This exciting piece continues to demonstrate our ongoing commitment to the NFT and blockchain space, and shows our eagerness to collaborate with talented creators as well as our club partners,” added Dransfield.
Meanwhile, Matthias Baeumer Managing Director of Teamsport at PUMA commented, “We are delighted to be able to collaborate with Manchester City on this latest NFT collection. This activity not only allows PUMA to join the club and celebrate a special and iconic moment, but also allows us to share our latest products with the public in an innovative, new and exciting way.”
Craig Palmer, co-founder and CEO of MakersPlace praised the partnership and the commitment shown by the three entities saying it illustrates the remarkable possibilities that non-fungible tokens can create.
“MakersPlace is proud to partner with organizations like Manchester City and PUMA, who champion innovation and continue to push the NFT space forward through spotlighting and celebrating the digital creativity of artists like Musketon,” he added.
