Team USA Athletes' Commission Commercial Resources


Endorsement Checklist:

  • Team USA AC in conjunction with an attorney specializing in complex sports law matters, developed this checklist to assist athletes when they are presented with an endorsement deal. This checklist may be used by athletes as a resource before they sign any endorsement deal to make sure all key provisions are reviewed thoroughly, and that the athlete fully understands the rights they are granting sponsors when they sign a deal. This checklist, to the extent possible, is designed to apply across a range of endorsement opportunities, although in each case careful consideration should be given to the nature of the deal as some of the points on this list may not apply.  

  • Endorsement Checklist Webinar (Also will be in the registration):  This webinar provides education around key provisions athletes should be aware of when signing an endorsement deal and walks through how to use the Team USA AC endorsement checklist.
