DraftKings (NASDAQ:DKNG) has teamed up with the National Football League Players Association (NFLPA) to offer gamified National Football League player NFTs as part of its marketplace.

"The future of fandom is unfolding in front of us," Beth Beiriger, senior vice president of product operations for DraftKings Marketplace, said in a statement on the company's website. "Few organizations outside of DraftKings are as equipped to capitalize on the increasing intersection between sports and NFTs that will be cornerstones of engagement and entertainment within Web 3.0."
