Created by the National Football League, Financial Football is designed to build users’ financial-literacy skills. When entering the app and selecting to play the Financial Football game, users must choose the level of the game (Rookie, Pro, or Hall of Fame), select the team they want to represent, the team they want to play, and the length of the game. After making those decisions and watching a short introductory video, the game starts. To play the game, users must select a play during the huddle, which can either be easy, medium, or hard. Next, users must answer a financial question related to the rigor of the play they called. If users answer the question correctly, the play is executed as intended. However, if the question was answered incorrectly, the play is not executed correctly. Also included in Financial Football are financial lessons for students ranging in age from 11–18+ that cover topics related to saving; budgeting; credit, debit, and prepaid cards; and credit scores.
