Super NFL Tycoon
The National Football League (NFL) is entering the Roblox Metaverse with the launch of three new experiences. The first is Super NFL Tycoon alongside financial technology company Intuit, which will allow users to be an NFL team owner and practice important financial life skills.
The experience is built on Roblox’s tycoon and simulator genres and is intended to engage fans year-round with virtual experiences and activations tied to NFL events. It will also include “Destruction House,” an interactive event inspired by the highly anticipated NFL Super Bowl LVI commercial.
Players will build and operate an NFL franchise, from drafting a team to managing items such as cash flow, payroll taxes, and customer acquisition. The experience was created in collaboration with Roblox’s metaverse content partner Gamefam.
The second new experience is Rhythm City, a Warner Music Group-themed metaverse area where you can play the role of a music producer or DJ and attend a concert. It is part of the league’s mission to further cement its tradition of content innovation at the Super Bowl and unlock deeper fan engagement.
Intuit, the world’s leading financial software platform, is bringing the NFL into the metaverse with its Super Bowl Concert. The experience is based on Roblox’s “Rhythm City” music-themed social roleplay world, developed in partnership with gaming and content firm Gamefam.
This concert, which will premiere on February 10, demonstrates the NFL’s commitment to facilitating new experiences for artists and audiences in the digital world. Its goal is to help artists connect with fans in a unique way, according to Oana Ruxandra, Chief Digital Officer of Business Development for WMG.
The event also marks the first time the NFL has teamed up with Roblox on an immersive metaverse experience. It will include a virtual Super Bowl Concert, called Saweetie, a music-themed social roleplay world on Roblox, and a game titled Super NFL Tycoon. Users can switch between these experiences via a designated portal.
