Roblox teams up with the NFL for the league’s 100th anniversary

Goodies coming to the game are team kit avatar bundles and custom emotes

The National Football League is about to head to MMO and game creation platform Roblox in a big way as part of the NFL’s 100th anniversary celebrations. Following the NFL team helmets that players got to adorn their avatars with last year, this year’s event will let you kit them out in your favourite team’s full uniform – plus, there’ll be five new custom emotes inspired by the league on offer.

Just announced in a press release, the collaboration will see avatar bundles for all 32 of the NFL franchise teams head to the game as well as five custom emotes ready for you to equip arrive in the game’s Catalog, which will be available for a limited period. Players will also be able to grab a “commemorative golden football digital item” using a promo code – this will be unveiled in an NFL Network segment coming up.

Roblox’s chief business officer Craig Donato says that the “exclusive NFL helmets were a huge hit last year” and now, “with more than 100 million players on our platform, we’ll see every one of the 32 NFL franchise teams represented, and no doubt a few creative celebration moves as players check out the new custom emotes.”

How DO I claim Roblox NFL bundles and emotes?

If you’re keen to grab your team’s gear in the game, all you need to do is head to the Roblox Catalog and pick your favourite NFL team uniform and emotes, and you can also check out the Roblox NFL site for more information.

You won’t have to wait to get your hands on these goodies, either – they’ll be up for grabs from today until September 16, and will be available for free.
