Fall is here, and football fans know what that means: game on! NFL enthusiasts with Visa cards get a little extra action this time of year by participating in the Visa NFL Fan Offers Program and Sweepstakes, which this year brings together football legends John Madden, Jim Harbaugh and Ray Lewis for their recently-kicked off ad campaign.

Visa has been an NFL sponsor for almost twenty years, and is the exclusive payment services sponsor of ten NFL teams, including the Denver Broncos, New England Patriots, Atlanta Falcons, Baltimore Ravens, San Francisco 49ers, Indianapolis Colts, Buffalo Bills, Carolina Panthers, San Diego Chargers and the Minnesota Vikings. Customers purchasing tickets, concessions, or team merchandise from any of these ten Visa-sponsored teams are often eligible for promotions and special discounts when using their Visa cards, the preferred payment method.

Visa NFL Fan Offers and Sweepstakes

The Visa NFL Fan Offers program, new this year, gives Visa cardholders a shot at winning exclusive NFL experiences and merchant offers. The program is featured in Visa’s latest marketing campaign, running across social media as well as television and print ads this fall. “Make it Epic” is the theme of the campaign, and the first commercial, which debuted this week, stars Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis being taken off guard by a young girl who asks him what his favorite color is and when his bedtime is during post-game interviews. Narrator Morgan Freeman then tells viewers they can win the chance to interview an NFL player with the Visa NFL Fan Offers Sweepstakes.

Besides interviewing a player, fans will compete for the chance to sit in on a game day speech by San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh, watch an NFL game with legendary coach John Madden in his private viewing studio, and take trips to the Super Bowl and ProBowl.

Participating Merchants and More

Merchant offers include discounts on NFL gear, pizza, and more – participating retailers include, Papa John’s, 24 Hour Fitness, DIRECTV, and Sports Illustrated. “With Visa NFL Fan Offers, we’re delivering exclusive and unique opportunities that put fans front and center of NFL football in ways that no other brand can. By providing a tangible benefit, we are able to strengthen our relationship with cardholders as well our merchant and issuer partners,” says Alex Craddock, the head of North American marketing at Visa, in a press release.

Get Out Your Visa Card

Anyone with a Visa credit card can enroll in the program by going to and entering their Visa account number, phone number, and email address.

Those without a Visa card who would like to sign up to participate in this exclusive program should look over some of the excellent credit products offered by Visa.
