FOX Deportes is launching its first-ever NFT collection to celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month. The collection consists of sports-themed NFTs created by Mexican artist Jiovanny Lopez Alvarez. Via this NFT collection, the U.S’ longest-running Spanish-language sports channel will also be celebrating its 25th anniversary.
About this sports-themed NFT collection
The first collection, titled Los Primeros (“We Are First”), consists of 250 limited-edition, randomly generated NFTs. Each unique NFT celebrates the sports, fans and cities FOX Deportes has served since its launch.
The NFTs will be available for purchase from today. Rarible will serve as the collection’s official secondary market. Additionally, an auction of ultra-rare NFTs from the collections is also taking place today on OpenSea. The FOX Deportes NFTs will unlock several perks for its collectors. These include one-of-a-kind memorabilia, tickets to major sporting events, VIP access to the TV channel’s events at its Los Angeles studios and more.
According to the channel’s Executive Vice President and General Manager Carlos Sanchez: “Since our founding in 1996, FOX Deportes has prided itself on innovation and being the first. With this NFT collection, we are looking to bring our loyal audience along our journey into the new world of Web3.”
