TUDOR GAMES ANNOUNCES NFL LICENSING AGREEMENT, NEW NFL ELECTRIC FOOTBALL GAMES AND NFL TEAM ACTION FIGURES
Seattle, WA (August 1, 2014) – Tudor Games, makers of the original Electric Football® game, today announced a licensing agreement with the National Football League to market a new collection of NFL Electric Football games and NFL Team Action Figure sets.

While two teams of football players still face off on the vibrating gridiron to create the action and fun, that’s where the similarities end between the new NFL Electric Football games and previous Electric Football models, first made in 1947. All new for 2014, the NFL Electric Football games sport innovative features including Invisibase™ Cleats, SpeedTurf™ Fields, and PlayAction™ Remote Controls.

“We’ve completely redesigned and updated Electric Football for today’s consumer, without losing the magic that makes our game a classic,” said Doug Strohm, President of Tudor Games. “The new NFL Electric Football product line offers a better and more realistic tabletop football experience thanks to our team’s dedication to improved game play and advances in materials and technology.”

“We’re thrilled to engage in this licensing agreement with Tudor Games,” said Timothy Langley, Director of Consumer Products for NFL Properties. “We believe these NFL Electric Football games and action figures are an exciting new take on a proven fan favorite and are an excellent fit with our goal to promote and support NFL football, enhance fan interest and loyalty, and ensure that our fans have access to quality products.”

Major enhancements include Invisibase Speed and Strength Cleats, devices that propel the one inch action figure players across the field with accuracy. Translucent in color, players wearing Invisibase Cleats appear to be running directly on the new SpeedTurf playing fields. SpeedTurf replaces the noisy and problematic metal boards of the past with a fully detailed hi-tech surface, powered by a variable speed handheld PlayAction Remote Control.

The new battery-operated games are available in three playing field sizes: NFL Electric Football with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $59.95, NFL Deluxe Electric Football with an MSRP of $89.95, and NFL Pro Bowl Electric Football with an MSRP of $129.95. NFL Electric Football Action Figures are available in sets of 11 players in home and away uniforms for every team. The new products will be available in time for the NFL season and available at major retailers this holiday shopping season.

Cudos and questions

Doug,

Hats off to you and Tudor Games for getting the NFL license back! This has no doubt been a long, hard effort and probably a great expense to get this back. I have already purchased some of the NFL teams. However, regarding the teams, it looks like you are clearing out old stock that was left over from the Miggle days. I'm not complaining, just observing. This is certainly a reasonable thing to do and good business to clear out old stock before rolling out the new teams. But can you give us some idea when the new production NFL teams with more current uniforms will start to be available on the website?

It just never seemed right that the NFL and Tudor didn't have a partnership. Order is now restored in the world. Thanks Doug for all the hard work I'm sure went into the negotiations to get the license back. The entire EF community is grateful.

Chuck
