Joining the University of Florida, and Michigan State University as officially licensed with Campus Legends: Florida State University, University of Utah, Virginia Tech, University of South Florida, Clemson University, the University of California, Berkeley  and Mississippi State University. 

On top of our new licensed schools, we released the first-ever officially licensed digital collectibles featuring athlete and school branding on November 3, 2021. This first ever release held from November 3rd through November 8 was a surprise Limited Release for the Campus Legends community, and was headlined by the legendary and iconic 2008 Florida Gator National Championship team. On November 10, 2021, we released packs, as well as current student-athletes from the University of Florida. Michigan State Spartan fan? Stay tuned for our November 17 drop featuring current student-athletes at Michigan State, such as Heisman hopeful, Kenneth Walker.

Regardless of stardom or sport, Campus Legends is a marketplace for all athletes, and all sports.

Why did this drop with the University of Florida matter? It’s simple. We are pioneering and trailblazing the landscape for both alumni and student-athletes to monetize their NIL through Digital Collectibles, and our marketplace is the trusted solution. Campus Legends is built to bring equity to athletes. 

There aren’t many times a company can be the first to the market in something. We are humbled, and excited to be the first company to release officially licensed player & school digital collectibles. This is a huge step forward for how collegiate athletes and schools can work together to bring something unique to their fans and alumni. We will continue to pioneer this space so that regardless of stardom or sport, our marketplace can be available to all athletes, and all sports!

For the first release, Campus Legends has created two series: The Champions Series 1, which will feature members of the National Championship Florida Gator Football team, and the Future Legends Series 1, featuring UF student-athletes. The Champions Series 1 memorializes legendary athletes who won a National Championship, and the Future Legends Series 1 highlights the Gators of today, and the Legends of tomorrow. 

I get so excited when I think about these NFTs with fourteen of my teammates and the work that we put in together on the field and now being able to celebrate this together. It’s a win for the school, it’s a win for the athletes, and its a win for the fans. Also to do this alongside some of the amazing current student-athletes at Florida is really cool. I think it's really special that the first drop of any officially licensed NFT, for any student athlete, is the University of Florida. We liked being the first for a lot of things. Gator fans, let's go! We like being number one. And we're number one again for the first ever officially licensed digital collectible.
