Updated Official Squares (February 7, 2021):
First off, we want to introduce ourselves and let you know a little bit about us. We are the SF Sport Marketing Association, our mission is to explore the sport marketing industry while providing a platform for ideas to be shared and constructive discussions to take place. Through meetings and events, we hope to provide our members with opportunities to grow and develop as they look to become the next generation of sport marketing professionals.
This year we welcomed a new team to lead the association and we are excited to explore new ways to expand our members’ networks and help them grow professionally. The association consists of members from both the San Francisco campus and the Orange County campus. We aspire to use this association as another way to connect the two campuses and build a bridge between different cohorts and/or programs to find lasting connections that will help our members’ personal and professional growth. During our first meetings, we have been brainstorming ideas for events we can host. Some virtually, for the short term, and some in-person, in the hopefully-not-so long term. Additionally, we want to get ideas from our members to see if there is something else that we can help provide!
For our first event, we want to create a free giveaway centered around the Super Bowl! If you don’t like the Super Bowl, hopefully, you like free stuff! We are giving away a USF face mask for the winner of each of the first three quarters. The winning square at the end of the game will win a USF hoodie! If you’ve never participated in a Super Bowl Squares giveaway, I will explain how you can win! Before the game starts, you will be given a spot (or two depending on the number of entries) on a grid of 100. The two teams pitted against each other in the Super Bowl will be shown along the rows and columns of the grid. There will also be the numbers 0-9 randomly assigned under each team. At the end of each quarter, a winner will be determined. The winner is decided by looking at the last number in each teams’ score and then matching those digits on the grid to see where the squares intersect. The name inside the square where the two numbers intersect will be that quarter’s winner! There is nothing you need to do outside of signing up and checking the grid at the end of each quarter to see if you’ve won! I have attached an example below if you’re still confused.

After everyone signs up, each of the squares in the grid above will be filled with different names. If the score at the end of the first quarter happens to be 14-6, you would look at the last digit in both scores, 4 and 6, and then locate the square at the intersection of those two numbers, which would be the yellow square in this example. If the only score that occurs in the second quarter is a touchdown by the trailing team and the score at halftime is 14-13, then you look for the square that intersects, 4 and 3, the last digit of each team’s points total again. In this example, the green square would be the winning square. The score at the end of the third quarter is 21-20, so you would look for 1 and 0. The blue square is the winner in this instance. Finally, if the final score is 35-30, you would look at 5 and 0, and the red square would be the big winner! We will also keep track of the winners for you, so if you win, you will receive an email from the association the following day alerting you!
