Join us this Saturday at St. Roch Park to interact with the NBC Sunday Night Football bus and cheer on NORDC Youth Football!
What: NBC Sunday Night Football bus and NORDC Youth Football.
When: Saturday, October 25, 10:00 – 12:00 p.m.
Where: St. Rock Park, 2400 N. Roman Street, New Orleans, LA 70117
The Sunday Night Football bus continues its tour with a stop at St. Roch Park on Saturday before making its way to the Superdome for the Saints-Bears game on Sunday Night Football.
The bus will be parked along the S. Roman side of St. Roch Park, while NORDC Youth Football games are played on the field.
The Sunday Night Football bus will give fans the opportunity to interact with America’s most-watched primetime television show with exclusive activities, memorabilia and an interactive 55-inch touch screen housing social media elements, photos and video. From the life-size NFL players and Carrie Underwood on the outside, and the Vince Lombardi Trophy and “Photo Bomb” wall featuring NFL players on the inside, fans will have numerous opportunities to interact and share memories from the bus.
Fans can digitally follow the Sunday Night Football bus at NBCSports.com/FollowSNF. The site includes an interactive map of where the bus has been, and where it’s traveling next, allowing fans to take a virtual #SNFRoadTrip, which began at NFL Kickoff on Sept. 4 and continues all the way to the ultimate Sunday night of them all, Super Bowl XLIX #SB49. In addition, fans can also participate in a tweet contest to show their team pride and see which team is leading in mentions each week.
Life on the road with the Sunday Night Football bus will be featured on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, as well as aggregated on NBCSports.com/FollowSNF using #SNFRoadTrip.
NORDC was selected for this opportunity for national recognition because of its participation with USA Football, the national authority on youth football training, safety, rules, regulations, and best practices. Heads Up Football is USA Football’s national initiative to help make the sport of football better and safer through education, training, and resources, including concussion recognition and awareness. NORDC coaches and staff receive comprehensive training from USA Football thanks to the generosity of Chevron to the NORD Foundation. Additionally, beginning with this season, NORDC invested in top of the line youth helmets from the nationally renowned manufacturer Riddell that offer additional safeguards against concussions. This unprecedented initiative for the youth of New Orleans was substantially underwritten by Chevron and the New Orleans Saints.
