On Saturday, December 3, 2022, the highlight of this year’s season will take place at the PENNY DEL. The Kölner Haie meet the Adler Mannheim in the DEL WINTER GAME (4:30 p.m., visible live on MagentaSport). The match will be played outdoors at the RheinEnergie stadium in Cologne.
To mark this year’s DEL WINTER GAME, both clubs are releasing an official collection of limited-edition digital collectibles based on NFT for the first time in history. The so-called “WINTER GAME DROP” contains a total of twelve individually designed NFTs. These are dedicated to the respective club, DEL WINTER GAME and ice hockey in general.
The special thing: all NFTs are not only collectibles, but also offer their owner a wide range of additional uses and benefits. These range from an exclusive preview of the WINTER GAME with the coaches of both teams and the chance to ask your own questions to tickets to the DEL WINTER GAME.
This is how the WINTER GAME DROP works
The total of twelve NFTs consists of four Eagle, Shark and WINTER GAME designs each. All NFTs are limited editions and have different release sizes. Fans looking to get their hands on an NFT can purchase packs or individual NFTs.
The packs each contain three randomly selected NFTs. There are both shark and eagle packs, although these of course only contain the respective club’s NFTs and general WINTER GAME patterns. Additionally, inclined collectors can also purchase individual NFTs. This way you can easily complete your own collection.
The packs are offered at a unit price of 15 euros, the prices of individual NFTs depend on the number of copies and range between 5 euros and 20 euros. No cryptocurrency is required for purchase, payment is made with common payment methods.
The drop will take place on the STARENA platform: https://app.starena.io/nfts/showroom/del-winter-game-2022-collection
Torsten Pfennig, Chief Financial Officer and Power of Attorney at Kölner Haie, says: “The DEL WINTER GAME is a highlight for all ice hockey fans and we are incredibly happy that the game is finally on the rise. With the NFT Drop we present ourselves together with Adler Mannheim in a very innovative way to all supporters, our partners and hopefully other interested parties. We are very excited to see how this digital activation will be received. »
Alexander König, Head of Marketing and Sales at Adler Mannheim: “We have been dealing with the subject of NFT for a long time. All the better since we can now set up a first concrete project for the DEL WINTER GAME. From our perspective, digital collectibles in conjunction with other ‘money can’t buy’ experiences are very attractive to the entire ice hockey community.”

What exactly is an NFT?
An NFT (short for “non-fungible token”; dt. something like: “non-replaceable object”) is a kind of digital certificate of authenticity to distinguish between an original and a copy of a work created on the computer . In this way, unique digital objects and limited editions can be created. Unlike conventional files, these cannot be copied as often as desired. And unlike digital goods, such as items in video games, users can own their NFTs and take them with them to various environments.
Why are LED WINTER GAME digital trading cards so appealing?
Because they allow you to experience this very special game of ice hockey in a whole new way. So far, fans have collected tickets, stickers or autographs. From now on digital collectibles will be added. Also, all NFTs have special features or bonuses.
How to pay for NFT WINTER GAME?
You can easily pay by credit card or direct debit, among others.
Where can I store the NFT after purchase?
On your smartphone! After the purchase, the NFT is automatically saved in your so-called wallet.
