“Give your financial knowledge a workout with the latest version of Financial Football, a fast-paced, NFL-themed video game developed by VISA. Test your money management skills by answering financial questions that allow you to move down the field and score touchdowns. Are you warmed up and ready to compete?”

Start out by choosing an age level, game length and team names. After the game loads, go through the coin toss and the kickoff by following the instructions. Choose your ‘defense’ and a financial question comes up. Answer it correctly and your team gains yards. After each play, choose again for another question and continue until your team scores a touchdown. You’ll learn about saving and spending, budgeting and the wise use of credit.

From the home page, click on ‘Lessons’ where you can download financial lesson plans by age group. Under the ‘Resources’ link, you’ll find more helpful information: 

  • Personal Finance for Everyone
  • Classroom Curriculum for Educators
  • Building A Financial Literacy Program

You don’t have to know how to play football to increase your financial knowledge.
