Friday Night Football Magazine gave coaches an opportunity in 2016 to make the magazine their own by offering schools a chance to receive maximum exposure in the edition. FNF provided a full-page team preview on the inside of the magazine for any school that wished to participate in the Custom Cover Project. FNF Magazine had previously offered the Custom Cover Project to schools for seven years as part of a package that included a customized cover and three additional full-page cover pages, a team preview inside the magazine and 400 copies to sell to fans. The full-page team preview was new as of 2016. Many coaches now use this program as an annual fundraiser for their respective programs.
“It’s good for anything from $6,000 to more than $7,000 per year, and we can spend it as we need,” said Berean Christian (FL) head coach Brad Carney. “We do some team meals on Fridays so the kids don’t go home before the game. We do a team dinner at the end of the year.”
