NIL Store Weekly Rewind: Sept. 16, 2022

Here's everything that happened this week at the NIL Store!

Michigan State & Loyola Join the Family!

It was a busy week of additions for the NIL Store as we announced both Michigan State and Loyola (Chicago) as our newest NIL licensees!

This means officially licensed merch will be available to every Michigan State and Loyola student-athlete in their own personalized locker rooms.

For those keeping track at home, that brings our current NIL Store family to: Illinois, Indiana, Purdue, Virginia Tech, Michigan State, San Diego State, Iowa State, Loyola, DePaul, Dayton and FGCU.

Connecting Businesses to NIL

 

Lindsay Quick wrote a great blog recapping the Illinois football tailgate last weekend, where Illinois basketball players Skyy Clark and Jayden Epps earned compensation.

What was cool about this event? It was a tailgate that was pieced together by a number of local businesses: 217 Mortgage, The Nate Evans Group and Country Financial - The Beaty Agency.

"Partnering with the collegiate athlete, local businesses are now able to leverage their brands to bring a connection to the community that previously didn't exist," said Nate Evans.
