The National Fantasy Football Convention (NFFC) is scheduled for July 15-17 in Pasadena with plans to be “the largest interactive fan event the history of professional football.
“I’m thrilled to be able to host this ground-breaking sports experience to life, bringing fans closer to the game they love,’’ says Cowboys QB Tony Romo, the face and host of the convention.
The inaugural NFFC event will feature over 100 NFL players and personalities engaging with fans of all ages across three days of football and fantasy experiences. Among the daily growing roster of over 100 players set to participate: Jay Ajayi, Geno Atkins, Giovani Bernard, Eric Berry, Dez Bryant, Jamaal Charles, Randall Cobb, Andre Ellington, Devonta Freeman, Todd Gurley, Jeremy Hill, Carlos Hyde, Chris Ivory, David Johnson, Julio Jones, Travis Kelce, Eddie Lacy, Jeremy Maclin, Doug Martin, Josh Norman, Carson Palmer, Jordan Reed, Allen Robinson, Alex Smith, Tyrod Taylor, Julius Thomas, Jason Witten and Kendall Wright.
“The huge group of current NFL players, fantasy analysts and NFL commentators that will be in Pasadena in July for the NFFC is unprecedented and amazing,” said co-host and ESPN Senior Fantasy Analyst Matthew Berry, adding, “I know fantasy players and NFL fans alike will have a weekend of learning and fun they’ll never forget.”
The three-day event is designed to allow athletes and media personalities to engage with fans and participate in numerous events and exhibits all weekend long. The event also includes a Military ‘Keys For Life’ Celebration recognizing the heroism and sacrifice of military veterans and their families, proudly awarding mortgage-free homes to heroes wounded in the line of duty.
