The President's Advisory Council on Financial Literacy defines personal financial literacy as "the ability to use knowledge and skills to manage financial resources effectively for a lifetime of financial well-being." (2008 Annual Report to the President)
A collaboration between the National Football League (NFL), the NFL Players Association, and Visa, Financial Football uses the sport of football to promote financial literacy among high school and middle school students. It’s a fast-paced, interactive game that engages students in football strategy while teaching money management skills. Teams compete by answering financial questions to earn yardage and score touchdowns.
Players pick their NFL team and opponent, as well as the level of difficulty, age group, and length of play. The game takes players through the steps of a football game—starting with the coin toss—and defines progress by how students answer financial questions.
