“As a multi-dimensional sports and entertainment company, we are pleased with the progress we’ve achieved during our first quarter as a public company against our long term strategic goals. We started to create assets for our first themed destination in Canton, Ohio by breaking ground on the Constellation Center for Excellence and completing the renovation on the DoubleTree, which we expect to open in the next couple of weeks. In addition, we entered partnerships with Shula’s Steakhouse and Top Golf to be part of the destination. On the media and gaming verticals, we launched the NFL Alumni Academy and announced the brand for our new fantasy football league, called the Hall of Fantasy League, which looks to redefine fantasy football with the launch of the league for the 2021 NFL season,” commented Mike Crawford, Chief Executive Officer. “We continue to remain excited about the long range opportunities in front of us to leverage the power of professional football and create multiple business verticals across an integrated platform and the entire team remains committed to making this company as successful as it can possibly be for the long, long-term,” added Mr. Crawford.
