After a long summer filled with questions about the fate of 2020 sports seasons, the NFL's return is just a week away and I know I can confidently speak on behalf of sports fans everywhere when I say I cannot wait to see these players take the field again. Now is the perfect time to sponsor NFL players, and where else to do so but OpenSponsorship? Here's just a few reasons why OpenSponsorship should be your one-stop shop to sponsor NFL players:

1. 600+ options on our NFL roster

OpenSponsorship is home to over 600 NFL players and counting across all 30 teams, ranging from rookies to Pro Bowlers to NFL legends. With a roster like this, we're confident you can find the perfect match to align with your brand's budget and marketing goals- and we're here to help you do so.

2. Transparent pricing to get you the best deal ~50% below market rate

OpenSponsorship's platform allows athletes to apply to work with your brand and they give you the price they would be willing to take, meaning there is transparent pricing when you're searching for the perfect ambassador for your brand. Take a look below at our NFL rate card for some general pricing estimates. These prices can vary, and please note that we also have players below these tiers.

The process on OpenSponsorship is quick and easy, and once you find an athlete you'd like to work with you can move quickly to create the content and complete your deal.


For example, take this deal from August between Fanduel and Aqib Talib, a former NFL Pro Bowler and Super Bowl champion. Fanduel was looking to spread awareness of one of their promotions available for a short time only to Colorado residents. Talib, a former Denver Bronco, proved to be a perfect match and this deal went from agreement to content in less than 48 hours.
