“It’s no secret that football is a growing around the world and we’re thrilled to play a part in spreading the game to our friends south of the border,” said NFFC CEO Andy Alberth in a statement. “We take immense pride in making the yearly convention a Disneyland for football fans and can’t think of a better way to bring that same joy to kids that may not normally get the best exposure to America's new pastime.”
The National Fantasy Football Convention will be held July 13-15 in Dallas.
