FGCU Athletics Launch NIL Store

Addyson McCullough, Staff Writer

​FGCU Athletics launched their NIL Store through Campus Ink last month. The name, image and likeness store sells co-licensed merchandise allowing customers to support their favorite FGCU student-athletes. 

Student-athletes are able to profit off their name, image and likeness through this new opportunity. 

​FGCU athletes can sign up to sell custom merchandise at no cost to them, no matter their sport. New drops are expected as more players join the NIL Store. Featured items include t-shirts, crewnecks and hoodies, all representing FGCU athletes. ​

Campus Ink believes that every student-athlete should have control over their name, image and likeness and how it is used. Through the NIL Store, FGCU student-athletes are compensated for merchandise purchased in their name. 

Rather than being paid a small percentage from Campus Ink, student-athletes will receive a share of the profits for each item sold. FGCU student-athletes can receive between $8 to $15 from each item. 

Men’s and women’s basketball, baseball, men’s soccer, women’s volleyball, swimming and diving and cross country are the current sports in the store.
