What is an NIL Collective?

A NIL Collective is a group of the most passionate fans, alumni, and businesses who come together to help create Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) opportunities for the student-athletes (SA) of their favorite university.

What is Blueprint Sports "Friends of" Program?

The “Friends of” Program is powered by our team at Blueprint Sports is a full-service NIL Collective Management Program, and a turn-key solution for the most passionate supporters. Our program ensures industry-leading standards and guarantees compliance with NCAA and state regulations.

Are "Friends of" Programs affiliated
with the schools?

No. Collectives are 3rd party professional services providers. Our programs are dedicated to creating NIL opportunities that exclusively benefit the student-athletes, fans, and businesses of a University’s community.

Our Current Programs

Friends of Wilbur & Wilma

Friends of Wilbur & Wilma

On February 9, 2022, we launched and began to power our first NIL Collective, “Friends of Wilbur and Wilma” for all student-athletes at the University of Arizona. Our team in Tucson is led by local business leader, and Wildcat Alumnus, Joey Medina. Since launching, our team has helped facilitate an NIL deal for members of Arizona Football in partnership with Athlete Assets; the team received a new laptop, and the creation of exclusive NFT trading cards for purchase. Additionally, at this year’s Spring Game, we partnered with Ice Shaker to give the first 1,000 Zona Zoo members in attendance a free custom shaker bottle, and following the Spring Game held an autograph session with 12 members of the team, along with Tedy Bruschi and Lance Briggs. Over 500 fans came through to meet the student-athletes! Our team in Tucson is continuing the momentum from the Spring Game as we look to build out NIL programs for other teams and individuals across campus!

Friends of Spike

Friends of Spike

On March 1, 2022, “Friends of Spike” an NIL Collective around all student-athletes at Gonzaga University was born! Our team in Spokane is led by former GU basketball stars Matt Santangelo & Shaniqua Nilles. To date, we have created NIL opportunities for both the Men’s and Women’s basketball programs, including a surprise appearance at a local AAU Tournament Championship by future NBA Draft Pick Chet Holmgren. Further, Shaniqua has recently started a video interview series with some of the “bench mobs” on the men’s and women’s teams. This summer Friends of Spike will be looking to build out NIL opportunities for student-athletes from other sports.
