“The Legends of Football” – 100 Years

Signed Agreement with VEEPIO, the Mobile Technology Arm of the NFL Alumni

Inspired Entertainment, Inc. announced that it has signed an agreement with VEEPIO, the mobile technology arm of the NFL Alumni (“NFLA”), to utilize the name, brand, image, persona and likenesses of the NFLA members to be commercially used worldwide in virtual football games.  The NFLA is the oldest and best-known retired player organization in professional sports composed of thousands of former NFL players, coaches, team staff members and associated members.

As the pioneer of Virtual Sports, Inspired has recreated the action of the world’s most popular sports for more than 15 years.  With this agreement, Inspired will have exclusive worldwide rights to utilize the brand and image of the NFLA members for its Virtual Products.  Inspired intends to use its award-winning visual effects and the latest in motion capture technology to bring the NFLA greats to life, delivering an experience and not just a game with its ‘Legends of Football’.  Inspired is currently the only provider of Virtual Football, which has received a tremendous response since launching in 2018, as evidenced by bet365’s recent launch of two new channels of football.

Inspired’s “Legends of Football” virtual football game will showcase some legends of the game, including NFL Hall of Fame players like Franco Harris. Harris said, “I’m excited to see the Inspired virtual product and connect with fans who may not have seen me or some of my contemporaries play during our careers. I’m especially proud of the benefit that will be derived by the NFL Alumni retired players as they transition into their lives after football.”

Phil Villipiano, the All Pro and 2019 GridIron Greats Hall of Fame inductee from the Oakland Raiders, who was on the field with Franco during the famous “Immaculate Reception” play, said it best, “I know it’s only virtual football, but it sure would be great to see the outcome of that play differently. Like Franco, I’m excited that proceeds from the ‘Legends of Football’ virtual game will go to the benefit of my fellow NFL Alumni to help them in areas like healthcare.”

“We are pleased to announce our partnership with the NFLA and VEEPIO,” said Brooks Pierce, President and Chief Operating Officer of Inspired Entertainment.  “We have had great success since the introduction of our Virtual Football games but we expect this partnership to take it to the next level. VEEPIO allows us to produce the first-ever suite of entertainment products featuring the brands and images of the ‘Legends of Football’.  Fans will love cheering on their favorite superstar players of all time, creating a more passionate and competitive experience.”

The primary focus of the NFLA is to serve, assist and inform players in their post-NFL lives.  Alumni are offered a diverse package of medical, business, and legal services to help keep them and their families healthy, productive, and connected to the league and their former teammates. The NFLA also continues to support organizations and projects that offer special promise to advance the quality of life in communities where Alumni chapters are located. Together, the NFLA raises more than $1 million a year for local nonprofit causes.

“We are always looking for new and different channels to expand our reach, assist our members, and help our local communities,” said NFLA CEO Beasley Reese. “This partnership with Inspired fits well within our primary mission of ‘Caring for Our Own’.  The Legends of Football suite of games helps position NFL alumni to grow their brands, embrace technology, and enhance their financial stability.

“As the award-winning recognized leader in Virtual Sports, Inspired is the perfect fit for VEEPIO and the NFLA,” said Jonathan Ohliger, CEO of VEEPIO.  “They have grown the Virtual Sports category massively in recent years, but no one has offered a virtual football game with the former players. We have every confidence that Inspired will put together an exhilarating suite of games that will help benefit NFLA member initiatives.”

A sports betting bill would allow organised sports betting in Michigan casinos and online was passed out of a state house committee. State Representative Brandt Iden of Kalamazoo is sponsoring the legislation.

“Because this is already going on in the market place so we can protect those people who want to play and want to play legally, and we can, you know, make the state a little bit of money, which I think is also a positive,” Iden said.

Iden hopes the bill continues to make its way through the legislature and onto Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s desk before Superbowl season.
