Toronto: Join Jerome Bettis to Celebrate the Start of the Season at Canada’s Official Kickoff Party
Calling all football fans: On Thursday, September 10 the 2015 NFL season will begin the road to Super Bowl 50, kicking off with the Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots take on the Pittsburgh Steelers at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.
To mark the start of this monumental season, NFL Canada is holding an official Thursday Night Football Kickoff Party right here in the heart of Toronto. Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl Champion and Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee Jerome “The Bus” Bettis will be in attendance to join in the celebration with Canadian football fans.
The kickoff party is the first of eight events in NFL Canada’s Thursday Night Football Tour, which will head across the country from September 10 to December 3. The tour, sponsored by Bud Light, is designed to give football devotees from the North a place in which to enjoy the game in style while reveling in watching their favourite teams. Additional stops include Edmonton, Vancouver, Waterloo, Montreal, Ottawa, Halifax and Quebec City.
The event, open to those 19+, will feature a local Toronto DJ, photo opps, food and drink specials and multiple giveaways – including New Era custom snapbacks.
If all that and the presence of Jerome Bettis isn’t enough incentive to attend, one lucky attendee will win a trip for two to Super Bowl 50 – a covetable prize if there ever was one!
Details of the event are as follows:
Date: Thursday, September 10
Location: The Ballroom Bowl, 145 John St., Toronto, ON
Time: Doors open at 7:00 PM; Kickoff at 8:30 PM
Safe transport to and from The Ballroom will be provided for all those who’d like to attend. Pick-up and drop-off will take place at the corner of Bloor St. and Avenue Rd.
Come kick off the football season the way it should be kicked off: in style, with an NFL star in attendance.
Until Toronto gets an NFL team of its own, this may be the best way to celebrate the start of the season on this side of the border. Don’t miss it.
