T.G.I. Friday's® Restaurants Issue Punt Challenge for Dallas vs. New York Sunday 20 Football Game

T.G.I. Friday's restaurants has announced that it has issued a Punt Challenge for the September 20 Sunday night Dallas vs. New York football game at the most talked-about football stadium on earth featuring the world's largest high-definition video board: If a punt hits the video board during the game, resulting in a replay as it did previously this year, Friday's will reward football fans who are watching the game in the bar at nearly 600 participating T.G.I. Friday's restaurants in the U.S. with FREE Crispy Green Bean Fries.

"We've seen and heard all of the news coverage and sports talk about this beautiful new stadium in our hometown and its massive video board, and we decided to have some 'Thank God It's Friday's' fun and get the party going on a Sunday. Dallas' first regular season home game in prime time doesn't get better than that," said Andrew Jordan, senior vice president of marketing for T.G.I. Friday's. "After all, T.G.I. Friday's is one of America's greatest brands and Dallas is America's team. So whether you're a Dallas or New York Fan, or just a football fan, we invite you to watch the game at T.G.I. Friday's and if a punt hits the video board during the game, we'll give all bar guests free Crispy Green Bean Fries during our coast-to-coast watching party that night."

With more than 900 restaurants in 60 countries, including approximately 600 restaurants in the U.S., T.G.I. Friday's offers, it says, great food, innovative drinks and a unique experience filled with flair and a Thank God It's Friday's™ attitude.
