The NFL has announced that it will offer NFT ticket stubs to attendees of more than 100 live regular season games during the 2022 season.
Last year, the NFT virtual commemorative ticket initiative was held in partnership with events ticketing giant, Ticketmaster.
The NFL’s expanded NFT virtual commemorative ticket initiative will include every single first-week game, starting with the Buffalo Bills vs. the Los Angeles Rams on September 8 at SoFi Stadium.
Additionally, each of the league’s 32 teams will offer NFT ticket stubs for at least three home games over the course of the season.
This season’s virtual commemorative ticket NFTs will be minted on Flow blockchain platform.
Last season’s NFT ticket stubs were minted on Polygon, an Ethereum scaling solution, but the league and Ticketmaster switched to Flow starting with April’s NFL Draft NFT collectibles.
An NFT works like a proof of ownership for an item, including digital goods like artwork and collectibles.
The NFL’s NFT stubs are digital keepsakes that can be held or sold, but a growing trend in the NFT space is to layer in utility—including access to exclusive benefits and events.
