Fintech For College Fans
In 2015, Lynn Boggs went shopping for a birthday gift. He drove all around Birmingham, Alabama, 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. Consequently, Lynn and his son Greg Boggs decided to fill the void in college licensed merchandise and gift cards. As a result, they founded University Fancards.
Alabama signed on as the first university to partner with Fancards. Since then, the company has partnered with more than two-dozen university athletics programs. The roster of team partners is ever-expanding and includes many of the nation’s best programs from the top conferences. We are also a proud partner of the Birmingham Bulls professional hockey team.
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. Your Fancard includes convenient features that members manage online and in the Fancards Mobile App. Your 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 away you live from your team.
The company continued its forward progress over the past year. The LSU Tigers, BYU Cougars, and Clemson Tigers became the latest Fancards collegiate partners. Fancards made moves with gift cards, too, by expanding its presence with college football bowl games. After providing custom gift cards for the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl for four-years, the Valero Alamo Bowl and Military Bowl presented by Peraton chose Fancards for the custom gift card needs. Additionally, the Tech Tribune named Fancards among the 2021 Best Tech Startups in Alabama.
