CHICAGO – The UConn NIL Store powered by Campus Ink is officially open for business, featuring custom and co-licensed merchandise sold for Husky student-athletes.
The UConn NIL Store is every fan’s one-stop-shop to score officially licensed UConn NIL apparel and directly support their favorite student-athletes. Athletes earn between $8-$15 on every item they sell.
This is just the start. The store will continue to onboard athletes and create unique core products and custom merch drops, while also adding jerseys at a later date.
Supporters will discover merchandise for basketball, football, soccer, softball, baseball and more.
Among the current Husky athletes signed to the store are star men’s basketball player Jordan Hawkins and women’s basketball player Caroline Ducharme.
Each student-athlete’s locker room includes a collection of core products which feature personalized names and numbers for applicable athletes.
In addition to Syracuse, the NIL Store currently has stores with Illinois, Indiana, Purdue, Virginia Tech, Syracuse, SDSU and DePaul, with many more stores currently under construction.
ABOUT CAMPUS INK AND THE NIL STORE
Backed by Mark Cuban, Campus Ink expanded into the Name, Image, Likeness (NIL) space in 2021 and launched the NIL Store, which serves as a merchandising solution for student-athletes and schools. The NIL Store operates with the firm belief that every student-athlete has an opportunity to capitalize on their NIL. Campus Ink was founded in 1947 on the campus of the University of Illinois and was reimagined in 2015 with an office in downtown Chicago and a production facility in Urbana, Il where the company handles all of its own production and fulfillment.
