TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 11, 2013) - To help bring fans closer to the game, the NFL worked with Vigorate Digital Solutions to evolve NFL Auction (http://www.nfl.com/auction) into a content-rich online and mobile auction site. Fans may now browse NFL Auction, the official auction site of the National Football League, and bid on unique and exclusive items before, during, and after every game no matter where they are.
The site hosts an ongoing online auction for a wide range of exclusive and rare offerings. This includes unique fan experiences and memorabilia such as authentic, game-used footballs, equipment, and apparel. Many items are autographed and even game-worn by NFL players, both past and present, giving fans another way to more deeply connect with the game and their favorite teams and players.
100% of net proceeds from the sale of all auction items on NFL Auction go to NFL or club affiliated foundations. These include the NFL Foundation, Player Care Foundation, the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and to causes the league supports such as breast cancer awareness, childhood obesity and military appreciation.
Kevin Smith, Partner at Vigorate Digital Solutions commented, "The goal of this project was to design an NFL-branded auction site that was also mobile friendly. We believe this is an essential component in engaging fans and bringing them closer to the game whenever, wherever - at the game, at home or out and about."
