U.S. Bank Sponsors Coin... Flip

One lucky 49ers fan will have the chance to do the coin flip at each of the team's five remaining home games, as part of a new partnership with U.S. Bank. Beginning November 1, a young fan between the ages of 6 and 13, selected from entries received at 49ers.com, will receive two tickets to the game, a parking pass, tickets to the pre-game 49ers tailgate, and the opportunity to accompany team captains to midfield for the coin flip.

At this Sunday's game, October 11, against the Atlanta Falcons, U.S. Bank will donate the opportunity to be the U.S. Bank Coin Flip Kid to an organization that it has supported for many years

"We are really excited that U.S. Bank provided one of our youth members with this opportunity," noted BGCSF president Rob Connolly. "This is a great way to acknowledge Daneil's stellar academic record and involvement with the Club's swim team and school basketball team."

In addition to radio and program ads, U.S. Bank will also be the presenting sponsor of the 49ers November 12 home game against Chicago.

"We are pleased to partner with such an important part of our community, with such a rich tradition, as the San Francisco 49ers, noted Michael Walker, U.S. Bank Northern California market president. "We are ecstatic about the opportunity the U.S. Bank Coin Flip Kid provides the Bay Area youth, and pleased that we could give one of those opportunities to our long time partner, Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco."
