As NFT11 continues to grow from strength to strength, the board has decided that NFT11 should emerge from the incubation cocoon of AI Sports and as such an inaugural leadership team will be put in place to guide NFT11 into the next stages of growth and development.
Finding the right balance between E-sport football enthusiast and corporate leadership was a challenge. The existing team has done a tremendous job, and to ensure as little disruption as possible, the natural choice was to look for talented individuals that have already worked well with the existing team as well as held key leadership roles.
As such NFT11 is glad to welcome Andrew Ling as the appointed interim CEO, and Shawn Lin as the interim COO. Both Andrew and Shawn are board members overseeing the parent organisation Dimension’s business and investing interests, along with AI Sports and NFT11, marking their first foray into the GameFi industry. They both have led past and ongoing business ventures in the Finance, Technology and Hospitality sectors. Andrew confesses he dreams of going pro in Starcraft 2 and Shawn dabbles in FPS’s too often for his own good, making them perfect candidates to develop NFT11 into a leading blockchain game!

The Saints famously won the prestigious English FA Cup in 1976, beating Manchester United 1-0 in one of the greatest ever FA Cup upsets in history as they were a second division team at that time. The Saints have continued to thrive in the Premier League to this day, having completed over 20 seasons in the Premier League and accumulating close to 1,000 points.
