Group Rights

Working with groups of athletes to pool their NIL rights.

Let's break it down.

At the most basic level, Group Rights is when we work with three or more athletes from one team or any six athletes from multiple teams at any given university. By creating these “groups” of student- athletes we’re able to include our school partners’ university-owned marks and logos to create the ultimate level of affinity with customers and elevate a brand’s credibility.

Wrangler Case Study

In 2023, Wrangler, the iconic American jeans maker, launched their first-ever officially licensed collegiate apparel line. To promote the line, they teamed up with The Brandr Group and a diverse group of Texas student- athletes who embody Wrangler's brand identity and western heritage. The collaboration was a huge success, driving sales and building a stronger connection between Wrangler and the college sports community.

They have helped us provide our student-athletes with the resources and tools they need to navigate this new era of college sports. BrandR has provided guidance and support to our student-athletes so they may make informed decisions and take advantage of the many opportunities available to them."
