Our History

The Collegiate Licensing Company (CLC) was founded in 1981 by Bill Battle after he signed legendary coach Paul “Bear” Bryant to a licensing agreement. In the process of developing a licensing program for Coach Bryant, Battle discovered that The University of Alabama did not have a licensing program. Alabama soon signed on as the first university client. Eight other schools quickly followed, and an industry was born.

Today, CLC is a dynamic, innovative collegiate licensing agency, resulting from the merger of two industry pioneers, IMG College Licensing and Learfield Licensing Partners. CLC continues to be the driving force in collegiate licensing and at the forefront of every evolution of the market.
