The NFL is visiting seven campuses in Ontario and Quebec this fall to support and celebrate Canadian University (CIS) football.
Each NFL on Campus visit will include interactive NFL-themed experiences for students and fans leading up to and during one of the school’s home football games.
In addition to a donation towards the intercollegiate football team at each school, the NFL on Campus program will engage students and fans with some genuine NFL excitement.
During the week leading up to each game, students will have an opportunity to participate in NFL on Campus flag football tournaments (with NFL team shirts provided by Nike). The new Madden NFL 13 game from EA Sports will also be available for students to play on consoles around campus. On campus cheer squads, student promotion teams and marching bands will also be decked out in NFL gear.
On game day, interactive NFL experiences will include the opportunities for fans to measure their vertical jump (comparing their results to those of NFL stars, then sharing on social media), to create their own Lambeau Leap photo, and to test their throwing and kicking skills in the NFL kick n’ pass zone.
