Helping Athletes Succeed in the New College NIL Era
Now that NCAA athletes can earn money off of their name, image, and likeness, their influence – and earning potential – will extend from the field to their social feeds.
It’s also an opportunity for universities, as prospective NCAA athletes may be enticed by personal brand assistance and marketing opportunities that universities can provide.
Front Office Sports, together with Facebook and Instagram, have created Athlete Marketing Essentials: NIL Certification – a six-lesson online course that breaks down the vast array of tools and services available to help athletes grow their audience, distribute content, and generate meaningful revenue. Topics include athlete safety, building blocks for personal branding, content creation, sponsorships, and monetization.
It’s totally free and upon completion, participants will receive additional content and a verified digital badge to let everyone know you’re NIL certified.
Boxing: Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder will fight for the WBC Championship on Oct. 9 in Las Vegas, according to ESPN. The third battle was postponed after Fury tested positive for COVID. Their second — a Fury seventh-round TKO — generated a near-record $17 million at the gate.
Golf: Notable early finishers at The Open Championship included leader Louis Oosthuizen (-6), Dustin Johnson (-2), Brooks Koepka (-1), Bryson DeChambeau, and betting favorite Jon Rahm (+1).
Olympics: 2016 silver medalist Angelique Kerber announced she has withdrawn from the women’s Olympic tennis tournament to rest and recover from recent play.
NHL: The Panthers bought out the final two years of veteran defenseman Keith Yandle’s contract. The buyout saves Florida $4 million against the cap for next season.
