Payments technology giant Visa and the NFL recently partnered to host “Financial Football” at the School District of Philadelphia’s William W. Bodine High School for International Affairs.
Philadelphia Eagles’ strong safety Malcolm Jenkins partnered with the Pennsylvania Department of Banking and Securities, Pennsylvania Department of Education, Pennsylvania State Treasury and Visa in an effort to help high school students sharpen their fiscal skills through the statewide expansion of the interactive money management video game.
“On or off the field, practice and teamwork are the key to success. It’s important for students to learn to make smart money management decisions before heading off to college or the entering the workforce,” said Jenkins.
Successfully launched in Pennsylvania five years ago, Financial Football has been utilized by thousands of Pennsylvanians across the state in homes and classrooms.
Financial Football is a fast-paced, sports-themed game and learning tool that can be integrated into existing classroom curriculum. The Department of Banking and Securities, Department of Education and State Treasury are renewing and expanding the statewide program for all Pennsylvanians.
