According to a new report from ESPN, Oregon’s defensive end Kayvon Thibodeaux has agreed to sign a marketing deal with United Airlines.

With the deal, United Airlines will reportedly provide special direct flights from Eugene to select Oregon Ducks away games this coming season.

“Partnering with United Airlines was a no-brainer for me, as they are a premium brand with the same core values as I have,” Thibodeaux said via ESPN. “I look forward to a long-standing relationship with United.”

As college athletes start to explore the space allowed to them by the new NIL rules put into place by the NCAA, this is something that we will likely see more of. Earlier in the summer, Thibodeaux already teamed up with Nike’s Phil Knight and Tinker Hatfield to release an NFT that can be sold for profit.

According to ESPN, the program with UA will begin with multiple direct flights from Eugene to Columbus, Ohio, starting on Sept. 9, for Oregon’s game at Ohio State on Sept. 11. Return flights from Columbus to Eugene will be available after the game and on the following two days.
