NFT studio continues to anchor its foothold in the sports industry and deepens Oak View Group relationship as the official partner for four additional NHL teams, Dallas Stars, Detroit Red Wings, Pittsburgh Penguins, and Tampa Bay Lightning.
LOS ANGELES, April 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ --— Orange Comet, Inc., a premium NFT (Non-Fungible Token) creative media and Web3 experience company, today announced partnerships with four National Hockey League (NHL) teams – Dallas Stars, Detroit Red Wings, Pittsburgh Penguins, and Tampa Bay Lightning – to serve as the official NFT producer and marketplace. This broadens the partnership with Oak View Group's Arena Alliance, an invitation-only group for venues to maximize sponsorship opportunities.
The expansion, part of a multiyear partnership, comes on the heels of sold-out NFT drops with both the Oak View Group operated New York Islanders and Seattle Kraken NHL clubs, and marks significant leaps forward in the sports and NFT arena for Orange Comet and Oak View Group. These inaugural collections will come to life with innovative and thoughtful designs that amplify the identities of each iconic NHL club, while bringing these special brands into the evolving Metaverse.
Kicking off these exciting drops, the Dallas Stars, Detroit Red Wings, Pittsburgh Penguins, and Tampa Bay Lightning will be revealing all-access fan passes that will be on sale beginning April 13, 2022 on orangecomet.com, powered by Avalanche's eco-friendly blockchain technology. Each team will only be selling 1,000 all-access passes during this exclusive sales window. Fans can purchase as many passes as they want within this period (as available). Following the sale, passholders for each team will be privy to multiple exclusive NFT drops through June 30, 2023. Additional benefits include:
- VIP Access: Each Pass grants access to exclusive team drops during the 2021/22 and 2022/23 seasons, including FREE NFTs airdropped into their wallets.
- Whitelisting: Passholders will be allowed early access to drops before the general public. These drops will be scheduled during the year and will contain new avatars, animations, collections, collectibles, challenges, and 1:1 generative designs.
"Our goal is to create custom, breathtaking NFT content that wholly celebrates and champions the legacies of some of the most revered teams in American sports," said Dave Broome, CEO of Orange Comet. "It's an honor to partner with Oak View Group and these individual teams to bring their fans a brand new way to experience and engage with their favorite clubs and players by way of the Metaverse."
"Oak View Group is pleased to be expanding its Arena Alliance partnership with Orange Comet to further amplify the consumer experience. These innovative, digital collectibles will create new ways for fans to engage with their favorite sports teams on a whole new level," said Daniel Griffis, President, Global Partnerships of Oak View Group.
Within these collections, there will also be unique opportunities where passholders can participate in real-world experiences and receive access to special merchandise. Fans can learn more and register for each of the NHL drops directly on the Orange Comet site.
