Football season is here, and it’s time to take advantage of all the football furor.
In the words of Hank Williams Jr., “Are you ready for some football?”.
Why should you care about football if you own a US business?
A.) Because football is awesome.
B.) Sponsoring your local peewee or high school football team is great for local branding.
C.) 49% of Americans are pro football fans. (ESPN)
How do you take advantage of football season?
Now that we’ve (briefly) covered why football is important, how do you take advantage of football season for your promotion?
We’ve come up with a few ideas for you.
If you’ve got an audience that loves football, give them the season schedule.
With the popularity of Fantasy Football, fans have more reason than ever to look up what games are coming up. (Plus, it’s not like people subscribe to TV Guide anymore.)
- Lists every game for every week in an easy to read format and a great carry along.
- A must-have for any football fan! Printed on quality card stock with a gloss coating.
- Folds to the size of a credit card.
This schedule makes the best wallet companion.
- The Pocket Slider Series lists every game for each week of the season in a sliding chart format.
- Conference and divisions are broken down, so that you can chart your team’s progress toward the playoffs.
The best part about promoting with season schedules?
They are flat and lightweight. They are cheap to ship and easy to carry a lot of.
Make Game Night A Sponsored Event
Having a venue to host televised broadcasts of football games is not only a great way to bring your community together, it’s a great opportunity for brand awareness!
All of these items not only add to the festivities of game night, but will remind your attendees who hosted the best game of the season when taken home.
- Strong flexible polyurethane with textured grip.
- Holds a standard 12 oz can.
The Football Can Holder is one of our favorite products because it feel like you are holding a football. It’s especially satisfying if your hands are too small to palm a regulation sized pigskin.
- Both helmet styles measure approximately 10″ H x 9 1/4″ W x 12″ D.
- Molded of durable PVC plastic.
- Includes plastic bucket in center and tray in the face mask.
- Football helmet is a full-size replica of an actual helmet.

The best part about this snack helmet is the dual compartments, allowing you to mix it up. We suggest putting out something sweet with something salty or savory.
- Football sports ball-shaped bottle opener.
- Features football lacing stock art printed on both sides.
- Made of durable ABS plastic with stainless opener insert.
- Designed for opening bottles and flip top cans.
These really shine when you’ve just cut your fingernails and it’s difficult to pop the tab on a can.
