MetLife Brings Football to Streets of New York Declaring "New York Football Starts Now!"

NEW YORK, Aug. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --



MetLife street teams will engage fans in "Random Acts of Football" events celebrating the start of football season – the pre-season exhibition game between the New York Giants and the New York Jets in the MetLife Bowl. 


  • Football in the City - Live action shots and visuals of spontaneous pick-up football games with commuters in key locations throughout New York City, including Union Square, Penn Station, and Times Square.

  • Goodies Galore - Free MetLife Stadium and team gear giveaways.

The "New York Football Starts Now!" celebration culminates at 12:00 PM when MetLife, together with the New York Giants and New York Jets, unveils a unique New York area football symbol of good luck - an eight foot statue of Snoopy dedicated to all New York and New Jersey football fans.


  • NFL Alumni & MetLife Engagement - Participating in the ceremony will be former Giants wide receiver Amani Toomer, former Jets quarterback Vinny Testaverde, and MetLife Chief Marketing Officer Beth Hirschhorn.

  • An Inimitable Landmark - The Snoopy statue (bronze, in football gear, running) will become a permanent fixture at the West Gate of MetLife Stadium and will also symbolize the completion of the West Gate entrance.

  • A New Tradition is Born - A great visual, the Snoopy statue is a symbol of good luck for the home team and their fans, who can "high five" Snoopy as they enter the Stadium.

  • Exclusive Fan Experiences - Prior to the event, fans can participate in "warm up" activities, join the New York Jets Flight Crew to celebrate the start of football season and receive MetLife Stadium gear.
