Vintage Brand, a sports apparel and merchandise brand, and MOGL, a platform for safely connecting brands and college athletes for NIL deals, have combined to announce the creation of an NIL network for all NCAA college athletes to become paid endorsers of Vintage Brand.
Vintage Brand is opening its NIL network to all 500,000 student-athletes across all 1,100 NCAA schools. The program will launch immediately within the MOGL NIL marketplace allowing all college athletes to become paid endorsers for the digital sports brand.
Athletes will make money from an affiliate program that will earn them a percentage of sales they drive to Vintage Brand’s direct-to-consumer (DTC) platform. The brand currently offers tees, hats, koozies, and a variety of collectible products that are printed on paper. The company already offers further opportunities and services for athletes to build, develop, and merchandise their own personal brand free of charge.
In a released statement, Vintage Brand co-founder and Chief Creative Officer Michelle Young says “We hope to empower student-athletes by providing educational opportunities to learn more about NIL and the surrounding business landscape, which includes building, developing, merchandising, and monetizing their own personal brand, as well as campaigns with existing brand athlete partners. We want to open the doors to educational opportunities outside of just unlocking monetary rewards. We want to help them grow as student-athletes, experience an entrepreneurial path, and set them up for a future beyond college sports.”
Vintage Brand is a digital sports apparel and merchandise brand that has curated and digitally restored over 25,000 authentic vintage works of art. The company introduced a college athlete brand merchandising marketplace offering college athletes the opportunity to monetize their name, image and likeness through branded merchandise. All products are designed and printed in the U.S.A.
MOGL is a technology platform connecting brands to college athlete influencers for marketing opportunities. The MOGL NIL marketplace is fully compliant and democratizes access to thousands of college athletes for brands looking to build awareness for their products and services. The company also provides financial literacy and brand advisory resources to athletes and their families free of charge.
