Palm Beach, FL., Feb. 07, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OpenLocker, Inc., a subsidiary of OpenLocker Holdings Inc., (collectively, “OpenLocker” or the “Company”, OTCQB: OLKR) is pleased to announce it’s launch of LOCKERMANIA™. LOCKERMANIA is a promotion building fan engagement by crediting purchases made on OpenLocker’s user-friendly platform featuring the Name, Image and Likeness (NIL) of student-athletes, as a reward for overall team achievement. All purchases made on an OpenLocker webstore by the start of the first round of the 2023 NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament on March 16, 2023 will automatically be eligible for credit of purchase price of each collectible and any associated sales tax. To fulfill its mission of putting athletes first, OpenLocker pays them a majority of the revenue generated from sales of their collectibles, enabling fans to directly support their favorite student-athletes. In the event credit is issued for purchases, the athletes will still receive the full royalty from sales of their collectibles.
OpenLocker has launched several fan communities, including the BONE YARD HUSKYZ CLUB™ at the University of Connecticut and ROWDY REDZ™ at Radford University. Registered members of an OpenLocker fan community are granted access to VIP events, exclusive experiences, giveaways and merchant rewards. Fans may become a member by claiming an authenticated digital access pass, or purchasing an autographed physical collectible if they also wish to directly support their favorite student-athletes. New communities are being organized, including the PROWLERZ CLUB™ featuring the entire Florida Atlantic University (FAU) men’s basketball squad, GATORVERSE™ at the University of Florida, and MADDY BADDYZ™ at the University of Wisconsin.

In the event of any of the above outcomes, credit will be issued to the credit, debit or digital payment method used to make the original purchase from OpenLocker’s webstore. Please allow four weeks for processing.
Brian Klatsky, President and Founder of OpenLocker said, “We are excited to offer innovative collectibles that enable fans to directly support their favorite student-athletes and experience an even greater thrill for a successful season. Our goal is to use NIL opportunities to not only benefit athletes but to make college sports even more fun and rewarding for the fan base.”
“I have always been a fan of this collectible concept that allows you to feel closer to your favorite athletic program and student-athletes. This promotion takes it a step further. You are literally along for the ride. That buzzer beater suddenly means a little more,” said Jonathan Kinchen, Fox Sports handicappimg analyst.
OpenLocker connects the digital and the physical world by offering utility, including access to VIP events and exclusive rewards, in partnership with local, regional and national merchants. The Company has also positioned itself outside of college sports with its OpenStable platform to engage the next generation of thoroughbred racing fans and plans to expand to additional verticals in 2023.
