CARLSBAD, CA (February 6, 2024)Upper Deck, the worldwide leader in entertainment and sports collectibles, today announced the launch of its fourth-annual “My MVP” contest to scout the loudest and proudest fans among the National Hockey League (NHL) and celebrate their love for the game.

“This contest is all about celebrating the unwavering passion that NHL fans bring to collecting moments and memories,” said Paul Nguyen, Senior Manager of Upper Deck. "This contest is a tribute to the dedicated fans who continuously showcase their enthusiasm on a level that surpasses the average supporter and makes them the MVPs of NHL fandom."

Contestants will be asked to demonstrate how they positively influence the fanbase and community of their favorite NHL teams. These nominees will compete against one another in an online vote. The “Team MVP,” or first-place winners from each NHL team, will move on to the final round of voting. The final stage will crown the “Ultimate MVP” who receives the most votes.

Fans who are 18 years and the age of majority residing in permitted territories within the USA and Canada can nominate themselves by logging onto Upper Deck’s nomination page, submitting contact information, and sharing why they deserve to be the “Ultimate MVP”.

The “Ultimate MVP” winner will receive a prize package that includes two 2023-24 Stanley Cup Playoffs tickets, $500 USD travel voucher, one-night accommodation, and an official trading card that will be found in 2024-25 Upper Deck product.
