NFL Launches First Officially Licensed NFT Game

The National Football League (NFL) is excited to launch its first officially licensed Non Fungible Token (NFT) game ahead of the upcoming draft day. Developed by Mythical Games, “NFL Rivals” is a fantasy football game where players assume the role of a general manager and must manage their athletes to win against opposing teams. The game is free-to-play; however, users can buy, sell, and trade NFTs based on real-life athletes via an online marketplace.

Early Access Now Available on iOS & Android

Players around the world can now download early access to “NFL Rivals” from both Apple’s iOS App Store and Google’s Android Play Store. The developer has secured full licensing rights to all 32 NFL teams as well as their athletes for use in the game. Each athlete’s NFT card varies in rarity, strength and other metrics that affect its pricing – ranging from $8 for “common” cards up to thousands of dollars for “legendary” ones. According to Mythical CEO John Linden, during its beta phase the game reported over 150k players with over $1.6 million in NFT sales; they aim to attract 10 million players by the start of next season!

Mythical Games‘ Goal: Provide Memorable Experiences
