12 Football Promotions to Kick-off the NFL Season
The NFL season began last week, and, as a huge buffalo chicken dip fan, I am thrilled. While I'm still upset that the Eagles traded LeSean McCoy, rendering my very expensive jersey irrelevant, I am still planning on watching every football game. But no game is complete without the right game-watching essentials.
From drinkware to decorations, football fans are always looking to upgrade their viewing parties and tailgates. And with 80 percent of all households with televisions watching NFL football games, the promotional product possibilities are endless.
So, huddle up and prepare your offense with these football promotional products.
1. Football game
We can all admit it: unless it's the Super Bowl, halftime in a football game is a snooze-fest. Even I choose dishwashing over sitting through half-asleep sports commentators, and I hate washing dishes. Instead, treat end-users to a fun halftime football classic: Fiki Football from LarLu. Let the games begin!
2. Football glass
"A football-viewing party is only as good as its glassware," said Troy Aikman. OK, so I made that up, but it's certainly an important component. Most football games go best with a cool beverage, and it's an easy chance to get your company's branding some decent exposure with football glasses, like the 20 oz. Football Sport Cup from HOWW Manufacturing.
3. Football stress reliever
For those of us that take football a little too seriously (myself included), a football stress reliever can make all the difference. Instead of flipping the coffee table, provide end-users with a less dangerous alternative, like this 5" Football (Large) Stress Reliever from Jetline.
4. Foam football
True story: I attended an LG event to unveil the company's new 4K television screens, and it was the foam football giveaways that were the hit of the party. I still have mine. No doubt end-users would still hold onto this Large Football from Ariel Premium Supply.
5. Football stadium cushion
For the lucky fans that get to watch the game in the actual stadium, a stadium cushion, like the Football Jersey Foam Stadium Seat Cushion from NEP Promotions, is an underrated promotional product. Your end-users won't forget the company that kept them comfortable throughout the stressful game, and your client's logo might even make its jumbotron debut!
6. Football schedule
Another personal anecdote: My local grocery store had magnetic Eagles schedules as a giveaway, and I kept mine up all year at my cubicle. If you're looking to garner eyeballs, I can guarantee that end-users will check a schedule, like the Magnetic Football Schedule from Nationwide Promotions LLC, every day.
7. Chocolate footballs
The only thing better than a real football is a chocolate football. When fans are stress-eating during the last quarter of the game, they can reach for these Large Jenny Billboard Bag With Chocolate Footballs from Lanco instead of something gross like carrots.
8. Football jersey
What's the point of being a fan of a football team if you don't have a jersey to prove it? Fans will appreciate the chance to throw on a comfortable jersey, like the A4 Adult Titan 4-Way Stretch Football Jersey from Bodek and Rhodes, and your client gets a walking advertisement.
9. Football trophy
Most fantasy football leagues provide the winner with a monetary prize and bragging rights. However, it's the ones with the big, attention-garnering football trophies that I aim to conquer. My brother shines his trophy every day, and he's not even ashamed to admit that. Give your client's end-users the ability to brag all year long with this Football Frenzy Award from Classy Glass Inc.
10. Football can holder
As the NFL season continues on, the temperatures tend to drop. While that might not matter for an indoor football-viewing party, tailgaters are sure to feel the chill. Keep end-users' hands from freezing with decorated football can holders, like the Football Beverage Cooler from AmeriFoam. That way, they can keep cheering and clapping until the fourth quarter.
11. Football serving tray
I'd be lying if I said I would attend a football-viewing party without food. It's too important! Customers know the value of a good food spread, and a football serving tray, like this Kickoff Serving Tray from Partners for Incentives, is the perfect way to display the fruits of their labor (pun intended).
12. Football cooler
As important as it is to keep end-users' hands warm, it's even more important to keep their beers cold. For those lengthy pre-game tailgates, a football cooler, like the Football Cooler from Picnic Time, is the only way to keep the party going until kick-off.
