Ford believes that tailgating is also a time for celebrating, which is why representatives from the Blue Oval recently kicked off the Toughest Tailgate Tour. The nine-city tour rewards National Football League fans in Miami, Pittsburgh, Dallas, Houston, Jacksonville, Detroit, Baltimore, Kansas City and Atlanta with the ultimate tailgating experience, and also serves to recognize local community heroes and members of the U.S. military.
As the Official Truck of the NFL, it was only fitting for Ford to acknowledge this year's pigskin season in an extravagant way. During the Toughest Tailgate Tour, NFL fans can order special Toughest Tailgate Trucks on demand through the Uber mobile app; the unique service delivers tailgate-inspired dishes crafted by local celebrity chefs, game tickets and an NFL shop gift card in an all-new Ford F-Series Super Duty. Watch the Super Duty work its magic in the video below:
“Football – just like Ford trucks – is about being tough, smart and capable,” Mark LaNeve, Ford's Vice President of U.S. marketing, sales and service, said in a released statement. “But what really makes football great are the fans, just like our own hardworking customers. We’re giving back to both fans and our customers with this opportunity to experience a once-in-a-lifetime Built Ford Tough tailgate party and NFL game.”
Attendees of any of the tour stops will be wowed by the once-in-a-lifetime tailgating experience, which gives football fanatics the opportunity to enjoy entertainment, food and drinks before the big game each week of the tour. A lucky FordPass member in each of the tour stop cities will also walk away with the chance to attend a Toughest Tailgate event as well as an NFL game for two.
