President and CEO of the Vegas Golden Knights, Kerry Bubolz, highlighted their team’s efforts for this venture. He said, “This partnership with Theta Labs allows us to offer unparalleled experiences and many more possibilities in the future.”
In addition to that, this is the first time the Vegas Golden Knight is stepping into the NFT space. However, the NHL has previously ventured into the Web3 domain.

The sports industry has collaborated with Web3 firms for projects covering soccer, basketball, and baseball, further providing immersive experiences to fans. Now, this partnership is using Web3 technology to remove geographical barriers and provide the best experiences it can. Lastly, the collaboration also opens avenues for monetization in the sports industry for enthusiasts.
