Q: How do I sign up to become a sponsored athlete?
To become a sponsored athlete, simply click on the [Become A Sponsored Athlete] link on our home page. A representative will reach out to you, create a login, and provide the necessary tools and education for your success.
Q: How much time will I have to invest in the program?
A: The time investment is entirely up to you. We recommend a 30-minute training call to ensure you understand how to articulate the program to potential sponsors. After that, it's as simple as mentioning the program to business owners, and we take care of the rest.
Q: What type of businesses can we bring on as sponsors?
A: Any business that accepts credit cards can become a sponsor—whether they're retail, restaurant, online, or service-based. If they accept credit cards as payment, they can support an athlete at no cost to them.
Q: Where am I required to display my sponsors’ logos?
A: Displaying sponsors' logos is determined between the athlete and their sponsors. While Future Stars doesn't have specific requirements, we provide an editable sponsorship agreement for athletes to use. We encourage athletes to display the Future Stars logo and tag us in their social media posts.
Q: What if a business wants to sponsor me but doesn’t accept credit cards?
A: Businesses not accepting credit cards have two options: they can start accepting credit cards by opening an account with us, or they can make a direct donation to you. While our website currently doesn't accept donations, it's a topic under discussion for future implementation.
Q: When will I receive payments from my sponsors?
A: Future Stars pays athletes bi-weekly on behalf of their sponsors from the profits on their accounts. Athletes also receive a bonus on all new accounts after they start processing with us.
Q: For how long will I receive monthly payments from my sponsors? What if I stop competing in my sport?
A: Athletes receive bi-weekly payments for as long as their sponsors allow us to handle their credit card processing. Unless stated otherwise in the Athlete/Sponsor Agreement, athletes will be paid even if they leave their sport.
Q: How much money can an athlete make?
A: There is no limit to how much an athlete can make. Earnings depend on the sponsors’ credit card processing volume, as athletes are paid based on this volume. The more sponsors process, the more athletes will be paid.
