Fintech For College Fans

In 2015, Lynn Boggs went shopping for a birthday gift. He drove all around to find an Alabama Crimson Tide gift card. Surprisingly, he could not find one. Next, Lynn did some research and discovered that collegiate branded gift cards did not exist. With this discovery, Lynn and his son Greg Boggs decided to fill the void in college licensed merchandise and gift cards. The result was that they founded University Fancards in Birmingham, Ala.

Alabama signed on as the first university to partner with Fancards. Since then, the company has partnered with more than 30 university athletics programs, college football bowl games and other sports organizations. The roster of team partners is ever-expanding and includes many of the nation’s best programs from the top conferences. 

Where We Are Now

In 2018, Fancards expanded its product line to offer prepaid reloadable cards. The reloadable card program allows fans to manage finances and budgets on the go. Cardholders can use their Fancard anywhere Mastercard is accepted. Fancards includes convenient features that members manage online and in the Fancards Mobile App. A Fancard can be loaded in numerous ways, including direct deposit, cash load, or check loading. Another fun aspect is representing your favorite team from anywhere in the nation, no matter how far you live outside of the team’s market.

The company continued its forward progress in recent years. The LSU Tigers, Clemson Tigers, Iowa State Cyclones, and Baylor Bears are the latest Fancards collegiate partners. Fancards made moves with gift cards, too, by expanding its presence with college football bowl games. 

In 2023, Fancards announced its newest venture with the launch of Fancards Payment Solutions. The new business unit includes the company’s first-ever software as a service (SaaS) offering, Benjamin by Fancards. Benjamin was developed and tailored for sports organizations and other businesses with complex payments needs. The launch was part of an internal restructuring that streamlined Fancards’ product lines. The platform is trusted by the likes of a Major League Baseball franchise, a major college NIL collective, youth sports academies and other businesses.
