SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 1, 2011- To help celebrate the official start of the collegiate and professional football seasons, Old Navy today invited football fans nationwide to show their team spirit and tailgate with the brand this Labor Day weekend. Fans are invited to bring their nerf footballs and swing by their local Old Navy stores this Saturday from 10am-4pm to enjoy a day of fun, family-friendly games and tailgate-inspired snacks.
"Every footfall fan loves this time of year," said Tom Wyatt, President, Old Navy. "At Old Navy, we know our customers are big football fans and what better way to support them and their teams by hosting parties to kick-off the season."
This Labor Day weekend, customers can shop at Old Navy's new in-store sports shop called 'Superfan Nation,' where they can outfit their entire family head-to-toe in their favorite professional football and select collegiate sports teams’ apparel and accessories gear. Fans that spend $30 on Superfan Nation gear from September 2-5 will snag a coupon for a free large 2-topping pizza for carryout on Dominos.com (more details provided in store).
