Gillette launches ‘The Best a Fan Can Get Sweepstakes’ for NFL fans
BOSTON — Procter & Gamble’s Gillette has announced the kick-off of its “Best a Fan Can Get Sweepstakes” where fans across the country have the opportunity to win NFL prizes, including one grand-prize winner who will receive a pair of season tickets to their favorite NFL Team — for the rest of their life.
Five runners-up winners also will receive an all-inclusive package to Super Bowl XLVIII for two, and additional prizes include the ultimate at-home Super Bowl takeover, footballs autographed by Clay Matthews Visa gift cards, NFL Shop discounts and free Gillette products.
For a chance to win, fans can look for a game piece inside specially marked Gillette Fusion ProGlide cartridge packs from Oct. 1, 2013 through Feb. 1, 2014, or while supplies last. Fans also can enter to win by requesting a game piece through the mail or entering the second chance drawing by visiting Gillette.com/BestAFanCanGet.
In its fifth year as an official sponsor of the NFL, Gillette is helping NFL fans get closer to the game this year by providing enhanced experiences all season long. In addition to “The Best a Fan Can Get Sweepstakes,” Gillette is giving fans a look at the precision behind the season’s most exciting plays through the “Precision Play of the Week” contest. Every week of the regular season on Gillette’s Facebook page, John Brenkus, creator/host of Sport Science, will provide a scientific breakdown of one of the prior week’s best plays. Fans are then invited to answer a question related to the play for the chance to win various prizes, with the grand prize being a trip to Super Bowl XLVIII in New York/New Jersey.
This season, Gillette also has teamed up with four star NFL players — Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews, New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz, New England Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola and Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin –— to bring fans closer to the NFL’s peak performers.
“Whether it’s on the field or off, some of life’s most important and impactful moments are determined by the precision with which they are performed,” stated Greg Via, Gillette’s director of global sports marketing. “The difference between good and great is in the details, and no one knows that more than Gillette. When it comes to shaving, we have spent the last 110 years carefully engineering and refining our razors to give every man the advantage of Gillette’s precision.
