NFL American football franchise the Washington Redskins has pledged to offer one fan an “unbeatable gameday experience” at its first home game of the new season.

The ‘Get in the Game with the Redskins’ promotional sweepstakes will allow one lucky fan to become a Redskins team member and work behind the scenes at FedEx Field ahead of the game against the Indianapolis Colts on September 16.

The winning fan will also land seat tickets, pregame field passes, pregame tunnel passes, and a car service for themselves and a friend or family member.

The prize also includes a $500 (€426/£380) merchandise card to use in the Redskins Team Store, as well as a personalised locker in the Redskins locker room with a customised jersey and locker photo.

In addition, the winner will enjoy a VIP tour of FedEx Field prior to the game.

Steve Ziff, chief marketing officer at the Redskins, said: “This sweepstakes gives one of our loyal fans an incredible opportunity to join our team and experience the Redskins like never before.

“We want to reward our fans with unforgettable memories, and this promotion is just one part of our larger plan to enhance the overall experience of being a Redskins fan, both at FedEx Field and all year long.”

Fans can enter the sweepstakes via Redskins.com/GetInTheGame until August 17, with the franchise to announce the winner on its website and social media platforms.
