“Jets fans are as passionate about their team as any fans in the league, and we know they’re always looking for exclusive content, experiences, and memorabilia that can connect them to the team,” said Andrew Wilkinson, Director of Digital for True North Sports + Entertainment. “NFTs are the next generation of collectibles. Like collecting hockey cards, fans will get the excitement of opening Go Jets Go NFT packs in anticipation of which ones they’ll receive. The digital nature of NFTs, though, will give fans a new way to interact with collectibles. Jets fans can be on the forefront of the emerging NFT marketplace with these truly unique and limited digital collectibles.”
