We Take the Risk
BLA is not a bank that you need to pay back. The capital players receive from BLA is not a loan. If you do not make it to the next level, and your career is cut short due to unforeseen circumstances, such as injuries, you do not owe us anything.
To ensure a complete understanding of a potential deal with BLA, we recommend that all players consult with legal counsel, a financial advisor, agent and family members before entering into an agreement with BLA.
Being an athlete involves more than the work you put on the field. BLA believes in empowering athletes to give back to their local communities and charities that are near and dear to their heart.
Opportunity and greatness are not mutually exclusive.
