ARLINGTON, Va., Dec. 27, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Pro Football Retired Players Association (PFRPA), a national organization that develops programs and benefits for retired NFL players, has partnered with Alumni Media, an over-the-top (OTT) media network that creates and distributes content in partnership with retired professional athletes. The newly formed partnership signifies a new era in media streaming and content creation for retired NFL players in one destination.

PFRPA Executive Director Joe Agbasi believes that the Alumni Media's platform presents a significant opportunity for retired NFL players to create the types of content that matter to them.

"PFRPA's partnership with Alumni Media will help to extend the great work being done by the network, providing an opportunity for retired NFL players to express themselves creatively on their own, personalized channels," Agbasi said. "The platform is growing steadily, and it's been great to see so many former players signing up to produce great, quality content."

Alumni Media Co-Founder Craig Richardson welcomes the partnership, acknowledging how the organizations' combined efforts will work to grow the network while offering new income streams for retired NFL players.

"We look forward to working with PFRPA to provide this unique service to its membership base, and I firmly believe this alliance will produce new, exciting content creators," Richardson said. "PFRPA members will have access to an evolutionary, on-demand content creation platform, and this network is the first of its kind. They will have an opportunity to not only build and grow their own brands, but also monetize their content."

Retired NFL players will have the freedom to determine the subject matter for their channels. Alumni Media will provide support around programming format, technical guidelines for setup and the production process.

As a former NFL player, Alumni Media Co-Founder Gus Frerotte knows firsthand what the media streaming platform will mean for retired athletes joining the network.

"After a professional athlete's playing career ends, many still want ways to engage with fans in meaningful ways," Frerotte said. "Alumni Media can be the platform that offers retired athletes a chance to share a never before seen look at life after football. I'm proud to be able to offer this service for PFRPA's membership and to facilitate the network's growth, while giving fans an intimate view into the lives of those who built the game."
