Sports Biz Network is launching an initiative to bring $1 million in fan-voted bonuses to the WNBA.

WNBA stars Natasha Howard, Dearica Hamby, DiDi Richards, Shakira Austin and Brittney Sykes, among others, have signed onto the project, announcing the partnership in a video posted to social media Thursday.

The campaign is part of a larger program dedicated to supporting women’s sports. Sports Biz Network bills itself as “a global community for sports and business enthusiasts,” and it hosts events and workshops around trending topics in sports.

Through its World of Athletes Club, Sports Biz Network aims to provide fan-voted bonuses to WNBA players across several categories, such as MVP, Rookie of the Year, Best Dressed and Player of the Week.

Members of the Sports Biz Network program will get access to next month’s Women in Sports Summit and exclusive meet and greets.
