ANNOUNCING THE NIL PROGRAM FOR UW-GREEN BAY STUDENT-ATHLETES

Creating unique opportunities to facilitate and provide revenue to our University of Wisconsin-Green Bay student-athletes.

WHO
WE ARE

We are proud to announce the creation of the Fly With The Phoenix Collective Group, a name, image and likeness (“NIL”) program to promote the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay student-athletes. This program will allow UW-Green Bay supporters, fans and alumni to donate to a collective fund used to create and connect NIL deals for UW-Green Bay student-athletes.

The NIL opportunities offered will focus on helping UW-Green Bay student-athletes take advantage of the NCAA new legislation allowing collegiate athletes to profit from their name, image and likeness. This program will serve as a matchmaker for players who want to get involved in NIL deals.

ABOUT US

FLY WITH THE PHOENIX Collective was created by a group of fans, alumni, and business leaders dedicated and passionate about the success of the UW-Green Bay student-athletic programs. We are focused our mission and are committed to making this organization a success.

WHAT IS NIL

College athletes have never been allowed to profit off of their name, image, or likeness. But recent court rulings and modifications of state law have changed the game. Athletes can now partner with businesses and organizations to make money from their NIL.

UW-Green Bay has given me and many other student-athletes not only a terrific education, but it has also opened up doors and provided a platform for success in college and beyond. I'm excited to lead Fly with the Phoenix in helping current student-athletes handle the expense of college life while creating connections with supporters and building relationships with alumni who can mentor them using their own experiences. I am fortunate to have been a Phoenix athlete and grateful for the opportunities UW- Green Bay provided, and now is my chance to give back in a meaningful way."

The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay has afforded me and many other student-athletes a phenomenal education as well as a platform to establish our own personal brands. With this platform comes lots of responsibility of how to stay financially sound and build relationships with alumni such as myself, so we can provide the knowledge learned to current and future Phoenix athletes. Green Bay has blessed me in so many ways, so I am very excited to be able to give back in a meaningful way!"

Coming from Chicago, I would have never imagined how much of a profound influence the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay would have on my life. As a student-athlete, the university provided me with the a sound education which would be the foundation for me becoming a physician. The relationships that I developed guided me back to not only serve the Green Bay community but the university as well. It would be an honor for me to support Green Bay's NIL collective and help provide a stable financial future for student-athletes."
