NFL experience comes North

NFL experience comes North

NFL legends Shaun Alexander, Jevon Kearse,  Clinton Portis and Rod Woodson will take part in NFL Fan Experience Tour visits to Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa and Vancouver this fall.

The tour, inspired by the NFL Experience event that is now part of each Super Bowl, brings together interactive skills, educational ‘chalk talks’, NFL player appearances and the Samsung Hope for Children Kids Zone, giving fans the chance to put themselves in the NFL action.

Kicking-off in Montreal at Place Ville Marie (October 13-14), the NFL Fan Experience Tour will then make stops in Ottawa (October 20-21), Toronto (October 26-28) and Vancouver (November 3-4).   Events are free to the public and fans are invited to bring down their electronic waste to be recycled courtesy of Samsung Hope for Children.

Former Seahawk running back Shaun Alexander will be in Montreal, former Titans pass rusher Jevon Kearse will be in Ottawa, former Redskins running back Clinton Portis will be in Toronto, and legendary Pittsburgh Steeler defensive back Rod Woodson will be in Vancouver.

All player appearances will take place between 2:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. on the Saturday of each visit and between noon and 2:30 p.m. on the Sunday of each visit.

The tour is designed to both educate and entertain.  The education component is delivered in part through Quiznos NFL Chalk talk, an interactive opportunity including football coaches detailing both the offensive and defensive basics of football strategy.

The Bridgestone NFL Skills Challenge, the TSN Media room, and the Samsung Hope for Children Kids Zone deliver the entertainment.

The Bridgestone NFL Skills Challenge gives participants the chance to testing their agility, tackling, catching and throwing.

The Samsung Hope for Children – Kids Zone features a miniature version of the skills challenge, complete with dives into the end-zone.

In the TSN Media room fans will get the chance to record their signature touchdown dance, watch NFL highlights and play the latest version of one of the world’s most successful video game franchises – EA Madden NFL.

Personal NFL Fan Experience Tour moments will also be captured in a personalized, complementary online photo album.
