HOW IT WORKS
Micconope 1851 is a fan-driven and alumni-led Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) program for Florida State University. When you commit to Micconope 1851, you’re committing to maximizing opportunities for student-athletes to build their brand and earn compensation. The foundation of Micconope 1851 is steeped in reverence for the Seminole Tribe of Florida. The word Micconope means young chief or leader in native Seminole. Pronounced: /mik-uh-no-pee/
What is Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL)?
“NIL” is the term used to associate with student-athletes’ ability to earn money off their brand, THEMSELVES. As of July 1, 2021, student-athletes across the country can now profit off their name, image, and likeness. Now, for example, a student-athlete may earn money for:
- Hosting their own football, basketball, soccer, or other sports camp!
- Partnering with and promoting a local restaurant or business!
- Having a photoshoot and autograph session!
Watch as FSU athletes inspire us to overcome adversity and succeed!
