NFL Players Association tackles the UK! Manchester, Edinburgh, Falkirk

The NFL Players Association are upping their game in reaching out to UK fans of the sport. Over the next week, they’ve got a packed schedule of events in the north of England and central Scotland to entice both Britballers and NFL fans alike!

Things kick off in Manchester, 21 June, with a Meet & Greet Fan Night featuring the opportunity to mingle with three NFL players:

  • Avery Williamson, LB, Tennessee Titans;
  • Dwayne Harris, WR, NY Giants
  • Three-time Pro Bowler Tony Richardson, former FB, KC Chiefs

The players will discuss life in the NFL and take questions from the audience. Limited to 60 attendees, fans will get the chance to meet and greet the players after the Interview and Q & A. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to interact with NFL players in an exclusive setting.

Following this up, on Thursday the big league stars will be upskilling the #BritballNation at a Skills Development Evening at the National Speedway Stadium – home of the 2016 DC programme of the year, the Manchester Titans!

Then, heading north of the border, the Friday will see the ballers meet and greet Scottish NFL fans at a second exclusive Fan Night in Stirling, before spending the Saturday once again contributing to the development of the British game, with a skills development day at Peffermill Playing fields – home of the University of Edinburgh Predators.

We’ll be bringing you more info about each of the events in the coming days, but in the meantime you can check out more about each event on their Eventbrite pages, and book your tickets before they’re all gone!
