The 2019 FNF Tampa Bay Campus Tour will kick off Aug. 23 with a stop at one of the biggest games of the year in the Tampa Bay area — a rivalry matchup between Plant and Armwood. This game will serve as the first of 12 stops throughout the fall season, in which the FNF Tampa Bay Campus Tour will visit host schools of the biggest rivalry games in the region.
This season, FNF Tampa Bay will continue to work with two Campus Tour partners — the Tampa Buccaneers and the U.S. Army. As part of the partnership with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, FNF Tampa Bay Magazine will visit eight host schools of Friday night football games. At each stop, the FNF Tampa Bay Campus Tour staff will engage fans with fun games, giveaways and prizes. The FNF Tampa Bay Campus Tour staff will set up a tent inside each school’s football stadium. Giveaways will include Bucs t-shirts, flags, sunglasses, headbands, rally towels, wristbands, and mini foam footballs. The interactive games will include a QB Challenge inflatable, prize wheel, and GIF station.

The FNF Tampa Bay Campus Tour’s partnership with the US Army will include four stops in the region, beginning with a visit to Palmetto High for a showdown with Manatee on Aug. 30. At each stop, FNF Tampa Bay staff and US Army recruiters will host a luncheon for teachers and administrators, providing our partners with an opportunity to share information about the March 2 Success program. The March 2 Success program is designed to help students improve their study skills and test-taking approach. FNF will supply subs, chips, drinks and dessert for each teacher in attendance.
The FNF Tampa Bay Campus Tour will then return to each of these schools for the Friday night football atmosphere. FNF Tampa Bay staff will set up a tent and table by the entrance to each school’s field. The interactive and engaging experience with the US Army recruiters will be tailored to the football audience with halftime promotions, give-aways, announcements and presentations.
