A $25,000 grand prize will be awarded for the World’s Greatest Shoutout at the end of the season.

Nationwide looks forward to meeting these passionate Steelers fans in person at all the Steelers home games where Nationwide associates will be working the World’s Greatest Shoutout fan contest.
This Pittsburgh Steelers sponsorship opportunity gives Nationwide a platform that aligns with the Pittsburgh community’s passion and team loyalty. Nationwide hopes to raise awareness through the live interactions with fans and add to the overall experience for the thousands of Steelers fans.
