Online American footy for kids clocks up ten million games played.


ENCINO, Calif. – (March11, 2009) – Brandissimo! announced today that kids have played over ten million games on NFLRUSH Zone (, the NFL virtual games world created by Brandissimo! for the National Football League, propelling the NFL to a new milestone following its spectacular season capped by the most-watched Super Bowl in history.

“We are proud of our association with the NFL. It’s a mega-brand that epitomizes intense competition and exciting minute-by-minute play. We built these attributes into NFLRUSH Zone to capture fans for the long term and celebrate the joy that is NFL football,” said Brandissimo! CEO David Snyder.

Featuring more than 65 fun online games, NFLRUSH Zone gives kids an exciting – and safe – environment where they can play and enjoy an NFL-themed fantasy world. In addition to games and animated videos, kids create avatars, join their favorite team, explore 32 team lands, earn virtual currency (“pigskins”), feed and care for pet-like characters (“gameballs”), and safe-chat with friends around the world in real time. Like the NFL, competition is the name of the game on NFLRUSH Zone, where kids can challenge each other in games to see which team reigns supreme each week.
