Indiana to offer schedule posters beginning Saturday as NIL opportunity for players
Indiana announced on Friday that it will sell schedule posters for the 2021-22 season for $2.98 each as a name, image and likeness opportunity for men’s basketball players.
Here are the full details of the announcement:
Bloomington, Indiana – The 2021-22 season marks the 40th anniversary of one of Indiana Basketball’s great traditions.
It was 40 years ago that the iconic IU Men’s Basketball floating head schedule poster made its debut, printed in advance of the 1981-82 season. New versions of the poster have been printed in every season since, creating an IU Basketball tradition that has doubled as both a great resource and collector’s piece for Hoosier basketball fans.
Hoosier fans will have their first opportunity to get the 2021-22 version Saturday. The Varsity Shop, located just inside the west doors of Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall, will have this year’s poster available for purchase for $2.98 a piece in conjunction with Hoosier Hysteria Presented by Smithville beginning at 2:30 p.m. Saturday. For those who won’t be in attendance at the basketball season’s tip-off event, the poster will be available for purchase online beginning in early-to-mid October, with online orders ready to ship Nov. 1.
In addition to the poster’s connection to IU Basketball’s past, this year’s poster now offers Hoosier fans the opportunity to be a part of something new – the new landscape of intercollegiate athletics. This year’s 18” x 24” schedule poster has evolved into a Name, Image and Likeness opportunity for members of the Hoosier men’s basketball team. The poster’s printing and distributing company, HardingPoorman, has partnered with the BrandR Group, which is representing all members of this year’s men’s basketball team. In doing so, the two sides have created an affordable pricing model that will permit each member of this year’s men’s basketball team to be compensated for their name, image, and likeness on the poster through the sales of the poster.
More details will be forthcoming online orders. Once HardingPoorman begins accepting online orders, please allow two weeks for delivery. Subsequent questions regarding online orders can be sent directly to HardingPoorman at [email protected]
