Fantasy This Isn’t Fantasy Football…Just a Football Fantasy

When you hear the words “fantasy” and “football” put together immediately you think of the millions who rally around the NFL Red Zone every Sunday watching, waiting and hoping that one of their guys is the next featured player to score.

Scoring leads to wins and wins lead to cash, prizes and perhaps even a replica Lombardi Trophy.

But can you win a prize valued up to $100,000 in your league?

Well you can when Visa puts together those magical words “fantasy” and “football” in their #MyFootballFantasy campaign.


What if John Harbaugh could coach your flag football team? How cool would it be to travel with your team on the road every game next season?

Or maybe you’d like to impress your girlfriend, wine and dine her in Manhattan, stay at a luxury hotel and then enjoy a limo escort to this year’s Super Bowl and sit in the cozy confines of a 50-yard line suite at Met Life Stadium and have the experience video taped to relive it over and over. After all Super Bowl XLVIII is being played on Groundhog Day!

You can make it happen by entering Visa’s #MyFootballFantasy campaign!

The contest asks for NFL fans to share their NFL fantasies. Visa will select 8 Grand Prize Winners who will morph those fantasies into reality.

Perhaps you’ve seen the commercial with JJ, Julio Jones as he shares and touchdown dance with a fan?

That is the program! This is the program!

And forget about that JJ. How about a JJ we know and love here in Baltimore — Jacoby Jones. And excuse me, I’m thinking Jacoby just might be a better dancer!

So c’mon, get busy! Craft your fantasy, print this page and let’s get this potentially off the hook party started!

Here’s what you’ll need to do:

Limit the value of your fantasy to $100,000 (clearly not a problem, right?) and you can enter via Twitter, Instagram, &

• Full rules are at the bottom of this post.

Upon entering, fans can submit their football fantasy on Twitter, Instagram by doing the following:

• On Twitter: Follow @Visa and tweet your fantasy using #MyFootballFantasy
• On Instagram: Follow @Visa_US, post a picture of your fantasy along with a description using #MyFootballFantasy
• On Visit our site and submit your fantasy.

These methods of entry require a qualifying purchase with a Visa card. To enter without a purchase, fans must submit their fantasy through one of the above three social media platforms then print their name, address, DOB, e-mail, and daytime phone number on a 3″ x 5″ card and mail it in a self-addressed, stamped envelope to #MyFantasyFootball Contest, P.O. Box 9108, Plainview, NY 11803-9108

Contest entries will be judged based on the following criteria:

1.Creativity of the fantasy
2.Alignment with Visa’s & NFL’s brand image
3.Match to theme
4.Feasibility of fulfillment

You can now be the offensive coordinator of a football fantasy come true. Get lost in your daydreams. Sit back and ask yourself, “What would I do if given $100,000 that had to be used to bring an NFL fantasy to life?”

Yes, yes I could see it now, me and my wife taking a private jet to the Super Bowl with a slight detour to the islands. After all, the game is being played in the Meadowlands in February. Brrrrrr…

After our little detour we land at LaGuardia, take a helicopter to the penthouse at some swanky Manhattan hotel and then join the party circuit with all the beautiful people in Manhattan. When Super Bowl Sunday rolls around we get back in that chopper and head out to Met Life Stadium where I go in the locker room of the Baltimore Ravens about 30 minutes before kickoff.

I give the team my best rendition of Al Pacino’s Any Given Sunday speech and they practically break down the doors to head out and face the Seattle Seahawks.

The conditions are borderline blizzard-like but I don’t mind because I’m in a toasty, fully catered suite where the halftime entertainer Bruno Mars is sitting also, and I’m reminded that I want to be a billionaire… well you know.

Of course in my football fantasy the Ravens win their third Super Bowl since 2000 but I can’t hold Visa responsible for that.

Either way, what a fantasy! But don’t let me beat you to it. Get on this and a make your dreams come true.

If you haven’t already, get connected with Visa via Facebook & Twitter and don’t forget to check out the campaign’s landing page.

Good luck!
