The NFL is getting creative and finding new ways to entertain sports fanatics of all ages.
Emphasis on all ages. Recently, during the embarrassing loss for the Chicago Bears against the New Orleans Saints, Nickelodeon’s favorite Spongebob Squarepants delighted the stadium.
Nickelodeon also aired the game on their platform to cater to the NFL’s younger audience. Alongside this, they created Spongebob themed ads to coincide with the game.

This partnership may bring a promising new avenue of income for both organizations.
With green slime, Squarepants on the big screen and field, the NFL succeeded at delivering this wild card playoff game.

Prior to this Sunday game, a clothing partnership with the NFL, Nickelodeon, Viacom, and Junk Food clothing collection was launched. All crafted by Philadelphia contemporary artist, King Saladeen.
“This collaboration is the perfect mix of art and sports to start a brand-new fan in both worlds,” King Saladeen said in a statement to Complex.
A priority right now for the NFL is reaching the younger audience and making football more PG family for younger viewers and fans.
Folks took to Twitter when the audience heard an F-bomb drop by a player and flooded the internet with memes.
