After going through our soft launch at the beginning of 2022, there were two major pieces of feedback we received.

  • TikTok accounts would be a great addition.
  • It would be amazing if you could add athletes’ email addresses to the databases.

TikTok accounts for each athlete in our databases are on track to be added in mid-February 2022, while email addresses have just been added.

Our team compiled athletes’ email addresses from their Instagram bios. They did so by hand, as there wasn’t a straightforward way due to technical hurdles put in place by Meta. They’re listed to the left of athletes’ social-media accounts.

Here’s the breakdown of how many emails are listed for each sport.

The athletes that have their email addresses publicly listed in each sport is a minority, but I expect the percentage to increase as time goes on. More and more athletes are going to handle their NIL deals on their own, I would estimate, as the rules become more straightforward and their schools help guide them through the compliance process. That’s why we will compile athletes’ emails once-per-quarter — to include the addresses that are newly-added as time goes on.

When we do so, I will alert our subscribers that there are newly-added addresses during that particular update. They will come at no cost.
