A proud sponsor of the National Football League since 1995, Visa is the Exclusive Payment Services sponsor for the NFL and all official NFL events. Visa’s league and team sponsorships provide a wide range of benefits - including access to the Super Bowl, the NFL Pro Bowl and the NFL Draft - to connect with Visa cardholders and drive value for financial institution clients, merchant partners and shareholders. Visa renewed its league sponsorship in 2009 through the 2014 season.
For the 2013-14 NFL season, Visa is giving NFL fans the chance to have their football fantasies fulfilled by creating and submitting their own personalized NFL fantasy to Visa through the MyFootballFantasy campaign. Fans can share their football fantasies using the #MyFootballFantasy hashtag on Twitter and Instagram, and via the visa.com/MyFootballFantasy microsite. Television commercials featuring San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh, Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones and New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees will appear throughout the season, highlighting some of the potential football fantasies that could be fulfilled through the campaign. For complete entry details, including non-purchase entry, see the Official Rules at visa.com/MyFootballFantasy.
Visa, during the 2013-14 NFL season, will enjoy team relationships with the Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta Falcons, Baltimore Ravens, Buffalo Bills, Carolina Panthers, Denver Broncos, Indianapolis Colts, New England Patriots, New Orleans Saints, Minnesota Vikings, Pittsburgh Steelers and San Francisco 49ers. For each team, Visa is the preferred card for ticket sales, concessions and merchandise and has point-of-sale branding online and at all team payment terminals within the stadiums, including concession areas and team shops.
