VANCOUVER, BC, Dec. 14, 2022 /CNW/ – Network Media Group Inc. (TSXV: NTE) (OTC:NETWF) and Network Entertainment Inc. (“Network” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the launch of its previously announced Legends NFT project in partnership with Hockey Hall of Fame. This exclusive multi-year, multi-drop NFT campaign will offer digital collectibles and community interactions celebrating the game of hockey, to hockey fans and NFT collectors around the world.
The Legends NFT project is launching in concert with Network’s 10-part documentary series Legends of Hockey: Greatness Calling 2000-2020, created in collaboration with Hockey Hall of Fame. Episode one of the series premiered on TSN in Canada on November 14, 2022, and new episodes will be released weekly on TSN until February 2023. Drawing on Hockey Hall of Fame’s rich history and unparalleled collection of cherished memorabilia, the Legends NFT project is a unique digital collectibles campaign that connects global hockey fans to hockey’s most celebrated legends, and the sport’s most revered men and women.
The Legends project was originally inspired by Network Entertainment Founder and CEO Derik Murray’s five-part documentary series launched in 1997, entitled Legends of Hockey, and was followed by Legends of Hockey: The Second Season, which premiered in 2000 with another five-part series. Legends of Hockey: Greatness Calling 2000-2020 is the third installment of the award-winning series.
Hockey Hall of Fame Vice President, Marketing and Attraction Services, Peter Jagla, added, “Our Legends of Hockey initiatives have been successful in supporting the Hall’s mission to preserve the history and legacy of the game and its greatest players. This Legends NFT program is designed to further reinforce our mission by engaging directly with hockey fans and providing a roster of digital collectibles designed for this exciting new digital universe.”
To kick off the Legends NFT project, fans can redeem a Greatness Calling NFT for free by visiting legends.ethosnft.com/countdown. This first NFT unlocks access to Hockey Hall of Fame’s digital companion book to the Legends of Hockey: Greatness Calling 2000-2020 TV series.
President of Network NFT Studios, Tom Lombardi, shared, “NFTs and blockchain technology are revolutionizing the collectibles space, and we are honoured by the opportunity to extend Hockey Hall of Fame’s brand into Web3. It’s a privilege to partner with Hockey Hall of Fame on this exciting new endeavour to create digital collectibles that bring fans and global collectors closer to the legends of hockey.”
