On Valentine’s Day, MOGL announced a partnership that will work to bridge the gap between Division II and NIL. The company is joining forces with Division II school Winona State University to support its group of over 350 athletes in name, image and likeness ventures and create opportunities in an overlooked area of college athletics.
As a component of the partnership, MOGL will assist Winona State athletes with NIL connections, incentives and cash compensation. Force Factor, a performance nutrition brand, will also be a part of the deal.
The initiative aims to bring awareness to the value of D-II and D-III athletes in NIL and support athletes as they navigate these waters.
“We are excited to partner with MOGL and Force Factor to bring this historic NIL opportunity to our student-athletes,” Winona State Director of Athletics Eric Schoh said. “These athletes deserve the chance to work with industry leaders to monetize their NIL and promote their personal brand.”
MOGL CEO Ayden Syal drew attention to the traits that can make Division II athletes a seamless fit for the NIL landscape.
“This campaign is another great example of the value that all college athletes provide to brands looking to market their products and services,” Syal said. “While Division II athletes may not always have the same level of national recognition, they possess a unique combination of drive, dedication, and campus influence that makes them incredibly attractive as marketing partners and brand ambassadors. We’re excited to help Force Factor and Winona State athletes work together to unlock the full potential of NIL.”
