The NFL Draft is a spring highlight for fans awaiting their teams’ (and rivals’) rising star picks. The stakes are high and the excitement too as NFL teams jigsaw their way to a full roster of players. As an NFL partner for more than 20 years, Visa is proud to share in this life-changing event for star players, while helping fans get closer to the action. At NFL Draft and throughout the season, Visa will be bringing athletes and fans together with convenient ways to pay.
This week at the NFL Draft Experience in Philadelphia, Visa will help fans gear up for the 2017-2018 NFL season by showcasing payment technology that supports their sports passion. Fans can come by the Visa booth at the NFL Draft Experience to virtually try on NFL Draft and NFL team gear in Visa’s virtual fitting room, provided by FaceCake Marketing Technologies, for an innovative retail experience. Visa has also teamed up with M&T Bank to offer NFL Shop gift cards to visitors who experience our mobile payments demonstration and learn more about M&T Bank’s Visa card offerings. Bonus: those visitors will receive access to dedicated checkout lanes at NFL Shop at Draft.
Visa will also be hosting NFL athletes to sign autographs and take photos with fans through the three days of Draft. The excitement begins on Thursday, April 27 through Saturday, April 29. Here’s where and when to find us:
