The Official Eagles Watch Party will kick off from midday at The Fox on the Viaduct in Auckland and there will be lots of opportunities for fans to win incredible eagles prizes, enjoy some great traditional American food and watch the game with fellow Eagles fans.

The Philadelphia Eagles are invested in growing their fan base across Australia and New Zealand, having joined the recently established International Home Market Area Initiative in which NFL teams are granted access to international territories for marketing, fan engagement and commercialization as part of an important, long-term, strategic effort to enable clubs to build their global brands while driving NFL fan growth internationally.

“Being an Eagles fan has no boundaries, so we are always looking for creative ways to grow the game and connect with new fans that bring them closer to the team,” said Jen Kavanagh, Senior Vice President of Media and Marketing, Philadelphia Eagles. “We are thrilled to be working with Charlotte Offord to bring the excitement of Eagles football to the Auckland community for its first Official Eagles Watch Party.
