Maryland athletes will be able to profit off of their name, image and likeness (NIL) with official Maryland trademarks and logos thanks to a new licensing program for all 20 Maryland sports teams.
Student-athletes who chose to partner with The Brandr Group (TBG) will have the opportunity to use their NIL with licensed Maryland trademarks.
The partnership provides a new connection between Terp athletes and their fans.
“Our fans will now be able to purchase Maryland items and support their favorite players as they haven’t been able to do before,” said Maryland Athletic Director Damon Evans. “Our student-athletes are able to profit from those sales through this agreement with Brandr.”
Earlier in the year, the NCAA began allowing college athletes to profit off of their NIL after prohibiting the practice up until that point.
