Armchair Strategies is a community collective founded to create an avenue for Wichita State student-athletes to partner with local businesses and organizations on Name, Image and Likeness (NIL) activity, an activity that student-athletes were unable to do until recently. This gives WSU student-athletes the opportunity to make positive contributions to the Shocker fan base and local community, all while receiving compensation.
Through Armchair Strategies, fans are able to cultivate and facilitate opportunities for Shocker student-athletes, giving them a platform, resources and support to be successful in growing through college and beyond. Funds ensure Armchair can provide financial literacy and education, brand setup, management, secure transactions and career development for these talented college athletes.
Armchair will roll out a variety of ways to get involved. With a small monthly contribution, any Shocker fan can join the Armchair Army and receive exclusive monthly perks to support Wichita State student-athletes. Another option is the Century Club, which is an exclusive group of 100 supporters that have each committed to donate $1,000 per month to a fund used for NIL opportunities. Benefits of The Century Club include partner listing on website, annual event with athletes, membership book for networking and more.
