Arkansas football team launches Fayetteville NIL Club


The landscape of college football has changed quite a bit in recent years. Players now being able to profit off their name, image and likeness (NIL) has been a big part of that change. Several student athletes have embraced the change and are looking to improve their situation. Members of the Arkansas football team took to Twitter on Tuesday morning to announce the launch of the Fayetteville NIL Club, hoping to give fans unique access to players.

Several members of the Razorback football team posted the same statement on Twitter to announce the launch of the club and offer insight into what they are hoping to accomplish. Here’s the full statement:

“Dear Razorback Family, the era of NIL is here. Name, Image and Likeness has captured national headlines about how it will impact the transfer portal and recruiting. As players dedicated to our team and winning a national championship, we aren’t interested in the noise. We believe there is a better way for us to use NIL to enhance our program and support our mission of winning.

“With this in mind, we have come together to launch the Fayetteville NIL Club. The Fayetteville NIL Club is a membership-based community that allows fans to access the players like never before. We will have an online community where fans can chat with us and get access to exclusive behind-the-scenes content from all the guys on the team.

“The proceeds from the club will support every single member of the team who is participating. Including everyone will allow us to reach our maximum potential both on and off the field.

“Beginning in July 2022, we are going to sell a limited number of Fayetteville NIL Club Access Passes. These digital Access Passes will be your ticket to the online community and in-person player events that we host throughout the season. Get behind the TEAM and please join the waitlist at FayettevilleNILClub.com. We’re excited for the future of NIL and can’t wait to build an awesome community and experience for our fans. Go Hogs!”

More details on the club and its happenings are likely to come out soon as the season approaches. The Razorbacks are set to begin the 2022 season on September 3rd against the Cincinnati Bearcats in Fayetteville (Ark.). Kickoff inside of Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium is set for 2:30 pm (CDT) on ESPN.
