University Collective

The solution for sustainable fundraising and fan engagement for the changing economics of college athletics.
We believe fans are the soul of college sports.
College sports fans are very passionate, yet the majority are not at the booster level. We engage at the micro transaction level to provide a more sustainable funding solution for institutions, making it accessible to fans, and athletes. We built this for the entire ecosystem.

how it works

Your fans crowdsource athletes to your university by purchasing “likes”
When an athlete chooses and enrolls at your university, Five Star Fans pays your new athlete the value of likes your fans generated via a compliant NIL deal
When an athlete does NOT choose your university, Five Star Fans reinvests a portion of the value of likes your fans generated back to the dollars to your university, providing a new revenue stream
The average fan is NOT a large donor or booster. We offer a way for all fans to contribute financially, helping solve for donor fatigue.
Partnership does NOT cost you money. In fact, you will gain a new revenue stream with zero management or administration.
As engagement increases, so does our data. We provide aggregated data analytics to our partner universities.
As the university, your fans are loyal to you. We ask our partner universities to help rally your fan base to the platform through a simple joint marketing agreement.
As a former D1 player/ Coach, and Denver Broncos Super Bowl Champion, I would have loved to have a platform like this available to me when I was being recruited by D1 programs all across the nation!

We’re excited about the partnership with Five Star Fans. Now we have a platform where all Buckeye Fans can feel like they can impact the recruiting process and their collective THE Foundation at the same time.
