ABOUT THE SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL BUS

The Sunday Night Football bus made its debut Sept. 8 in Dallas and continues to Seattle this week. The Sunday Night Football bus will travel to all 17 SNF games, arriving in each city two or three days prior to each game.  The bus makes stops at local landmarks and events in each market before making its way to the game site for a full Sunday at the stadium, giving fans the opportunity to interact with America’s most-watched primetime television show. Integrated marketing agency CSE collaborated with NBC Sports Group’s marketing team on the Sunday Night Football bus, and manages all tour stops for the entire campaign.

The Sunday Night Football bus incorporates exclusive activities and social media both inside and out. SNF‘s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts along with the #SNF hashtag will be displayed on the exterior. Once on the bus, fans and visitors can tweet and post photos of themselves in the broadcast positions occupied by Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth from a mock SNF studio.

Also, along for the ride will be four SNF “Fans of the Week” chosen based on their social media activity, team pride and SNF fandom. In each home market, the SNF “Fans of the Week” will be given a VIP experience that includes a trip on the bus and game tickets.

Fans who can’t visit in person can “Follow The Bus” when it hits the road at NBCSports.com/FollowSNF, which will include an interactive map, a behind-the-scenes look at the Sunday Night Football crew and talent, plus content from the bus itself. Fans can also contribute to the map by uploading their own photos sharing and showing their SNF and team pride.

“THE SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL”

For the second consecutive season NBC Sports will present “The Sunday Night Football,” a custom made football from Wilson, which will travel with the SNF crew all season long on the SNF bus alongside 2012’s “The Sunday Night Football.” Fans of SNF on Facebook and Twitter will be able to keep up with “The Sunday Night Football on the SNF Facebook page, follow its path through each city and recommend where it should visit while in town. In addition, fans can visit NBCSports.com/FollowSNF.

At the end of each SNF game, “The Sunday Night Football” will be signed by the player of the game. Photos, video and stories around “The Sunday Night Football and its travels will live on Facebook, Twitter, and SNF All-Access.
