Rider Sandals Launches Foosball Tour

Rider Sandals continues
its search for the best  collegiate foosball
players with the Fall Foosball Tour, making stops across the  Northeast throughout the month of September. Rider will
kick off its fall tour in Boston, MA at College Day at Fenway Park on  Sept. 7, where more than 10,000 college students
are expected to attend.    

The first leg of the Rider Sandals Foosball Tour
was introduced in Florida  throughout April
2013, where Rider made stops into University of South Florida,  University of Miami, University of Florida and
Florida State University.     As with the first leg of the tour, attendees at
each of the fall events will have an  opportunity to receive giveaway items such as Rider
Sandals discount cards, key  chains, stickers, t-shirts, sandals, and more.

Students will be able to stop by each event over
the course of the day to casually  play a
little foosball with friends. They will also be given the opportunity to sign up
 for a tournament style competition, which
will take place later in the day where the  competition will really heat up.   

Students choosing to play in the tournament will
be eligible to not only hold the title  of  “Campus
Foosball Champ,” but also take home a prize package including Rider  Sandals and a cash prize    

Schedule details are as follows:

• September 7 – College Day at Fenway Park 

• September 9 – University of Connecticut

“We gained great insight into the core consumer
group with the Florida Foosball  Tour in April
and we’re really looking forward to meeting more Rider fans with the  Fall tour. The events are designed to be fun and
interactive for the students, leaving  them with great giveaways after a fun event,” said
Angelo Daros, Vice President of  Marketing, Grendene USA.
