Hitachi Announces Fantasy Football Contest
Hitachi America announced Monday that it has teamed up with the sports annual publisher Athlon Sports to sponsor a fantasy football contest. The unique promotion, called “Rush For 2000 Yards,” focuses exclusively on running backs, will award prizes to fans who correctly predict the performance of designated NFL runners.
Those participating in the contest will be asked each week to pick a different running back on an NFL roster, and predict that players rushing yards and attempts. Those who pick the top rusher each week, and correctly predict the total yardage by that player will receive prizes.
Players will have a chance to win a Hitachi flat screen television, as well as prizes including team jerseys, autographed mini-helmets, and team hats. The grand prize winner will win a trip for two to Honolulu for a game.
