A group of East Carolina University fans embraced the school’s nickname and mascot when naming the Team Boneyard collective in June 2022. Team Boneyard said 100% of its contributions, which the group will collect via credit card payment at, PayPal and Venmo, will go to East Carolina athletes for NIL activities. “Companies can capitalize on this new and unique opportunity by having ECU athletes promote their business through media campaigns, social media campaigns, autograph signings and/or public appearances,” the collective says. “Team Boneyard will facilitate these marketing opportunities for companies and student athletes.” In the Team Boneyard press release, Vern Davenport, Travis Burt and Henry Hinton are listed as contributors to the collective. Team Boneyard is registered as a limited liability company, or LLC, in North Carolina. “College athletics is rapidly changing and the creation of this collective on behalf of ECU Athletics is critical to our continued competitiveness,” Davenport said in a statement in the press release. “This collective will provide a trusted, compliant marketplace for Pirate Nation to successfully engage with ECU Student Athletes.”
