Nationwide launched its Official Sponsorship with the National Football League in August, 2014. Nationwide's partnership includes relationships with current and former players, teams, media and the prestigious Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award.
Nationwide's relationship with the NFL goes deep
Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award
The Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award recognizes a player for his excellence both on the field and in his community. Born in the same commitment to community, Nationwide is a proud sponsor of the NFL’s most prestigious award. For 2017, the honor went to Houston Texans defensive end, J.J. Watt.
Great happens on the field. Good happens off. And both inspire the next generation of players to do the same.
