‘Back to Football Friday’ in Buffalo

Posted by Chris Brown on September 9, 2010 – 3:52 pm

Tomorrow (Friday) morning (10 am) at the United Way offices in downtown Buffalo, Mayor Byron Brown and County Executive Chris Collins will proclaim Friday ‘Back to Football Friday’ in Buffalo and Erie County.

The National Football League and the Buffalo Bills are celebrating Friday, Sept. 10, as Back to Football Friday in Buffalo and across the country. Students, schools, fans and businesses in Buffalo and across the country were urged to wear their team colors and host Back to Football Friday events to celebrate the beginning of the NFL season. 

The Bills in partnership with the Buffalo Niagara CVB, Amherst COC, Buffalo and Fort Erie Public Bridge Authority and the United Way are encouraging students and teachers in schools and area businesses in the Buffalo region to showcase their passion for their favorite NFL team on Friday, Sept. 10.

The local school that shows the most creativity and enthusiasm will be named an NFL PLAY 60 Super School (34 schools across the country will receive this designation by the NFL). They will be awarded a NFL player visit and a $10,000 grant to fund new physical education resources and equipment. 

A local business will receive a catered executive suite to a Bills home game for up to 25 people, and a runner-up business will receive a catered office party with the Buffalo Jills and Billy Buffalo courtesy of Tops Friendly Markets. 

Beginning Friday, companies can post Back to Football Friday photos on the Bills website www.buffalobills.com. Fans can vote for their favorite company photos to determine the winner.
