BOULDER, Colo. and GREENVILLE, N.C. – February 17, 2021
InXAthlete, a leading provider of career services for college athletes, and Game Plan, the leader in athlete education technology, today officially announced their merger. The group will provide the market’s top platform for all-in-one athlete development, mentorship, and career services.
“Led by former college student-athletes on both sides, our groups have an innate understanding of athletes’ needs and the technology that can support them,” said Cody Ferraro, InXAthlete Co-Founder. “Teaming up is a clear way to better fulfill a shared mission of guiding student-athletes on and off the field.”

”“We can’t overstate the significance of a college football player’s development on & off the field, whether they are preparing for the NFL or a life after college sports, Game Plan has helped us improve our communication to the players in these key areas, and our current partnership plays a critical role within the NFL’s college outreach strategy.”Roman ObenVice President of College Outreach & Football Operations.
”“Preparing our student-athletes for life after sports is just as important if not more important than preparing them for game day. We believe that the merger between InXAthlete and Game Plan will help collegiate athletics as a whole in providing student-athletes with the resources necessary to succeed in life after sport.”Nona RichardsonUniversity of Utah SWA and Executive Senior Associate Athletic Director
