It's All About Reaching a Younger Audience
Coined as the ultimate football throwing challenge, this Roblox experience expands NFL's presence in the metaverse. Their aim is to promote American football to kids and encourage physical activity while earning revenue from virtual merchandise and turning the Gen Z audience (7 to 22) into loyal NFL viewers.
It comes as no surprise, a brand like the NFL is turning to Roblox to reach a younger audience. According to SportTechie, "the median age of fans who watch NFL games on traditional television is 54."
How's the Game Performing?
Teaming up once again with MELON, a leading metaverse developer, the NFL launched an initial Roblox release, NFL Tycoon, during last February’s Super Bowl week. This new NFL game has already proved popular with Robloxians, engaging new and existing NFL fans. Since its release on November 8, visits have climbed to over 1 million.
