OpenLocker and Success with Honor are combining efforts to create new ways for Penn State University sports fans to connect with student-athletes.
The new collaboration will create the Lionz Club, an exclusive community for Penn State fans to connect with student-athletes using Web3 and blockchain technology to deliver exclusive physical collectibles, memorabilia, and in person experiences. Digital collectibles will be available on OpenLocker’s fan platform to provide fans with proof of ownership and access to Lionz Club utility and rewards program. Success with Honor subscribers will receive additional privileges, collectibles, and discounts on the Lionz Club collection.
Male and female athletes in all sports will have the opportunity to earn NIL revenue from the sales of their digital and physical collectibles, and for participating in experiences with fans. The company plans to launch the Lionz Club collection in October 2022 with men’s and women’s athletes in all sports, including Roman Bravo-Young, Three-time All-American and 2021 and 2022 NCAA Division I National champion wrestler.
OpenLocker connects the digital and the physical world by offering real world utility and a physical card of ownership to fans who purchase a digital collectible on its platform. The limited-edition Platinum Cards are wallet-sized, metal collectible cards that are hand-signed by the athlete and feature the digital art on one side and QR code on the back which directs to the digital viewer. Lionz Club members will also receive a randomly generated and authenticated Lionz Club avatar with a unique combination of traits, or picture for proof (PFP). Once claimed, the PFP functions as a digital key for members to access VIP events and receive rewards from local, regional and national retailers.
OpenLocker has launched several Fan Clubs so far this year including the Gatorverse.io at the University of Florida, Boneyardhuskyzclub.io at the University of Connecticut, Openstable.io for horse racing fans, Jockzroom.io for fans of horse racing Jockeys, BraveHeartzLax.io for lacrosse fans and looks forward to building additional fan communities through its platform at other schools this fall.
