HiFL Masterclass Series
The #HiFLMasterClass Series is a sequence of online sessions created to grow and empower critical HiFL stakeholders – sports and non-sports enthusiasts by engaging experts on pertinent issues that affect them.
The sessions aim to drive value-delivery to every segment of the collegiate value chain including Sponsors/Partners, Sports Administrators/Managers, Athletes, and Fans while creating a viable platform for continued and long-term direct engagement between HiFL and fans.
