EAST LANSING, Mich. — MSU Federal Credit Union (MSUFCU) is pleased to announce the 2018 MSUFCU Kickoff Kids Sweepstakes. During the Michigan State University (MSU) 2018 football season, kids entered into the sweepstakes will be selected randomly to participate as a Kickoff Kid for one of the seven home games.


“We are excited to again be part of this once in a lifetime chance for kids to join the MSU football team during a home game,” said Deidre Davis, MSUFCU’s Chief Marketing Officer. “By partnering with MSU, we are helping kids in our community share the great tradition of MSU football.”


For each MSU home football game, two kids will be randomly selected to join the Spartans on the sidelines and run onto the field to pick up the kicking tee after each kickoff.  In addition, each winner receives a MSU football jersey, a sideline pass, two tickets to the game for their parents/guardians, and a parking pass.


For the first MSU home football game on August 31, 2018, Jason Lea, Jr., age 11, and Will Kaiser, age 9, kicked off the season as the first participants in the Kids Kickoff Contest. (See attached photo).


You can still enter your Spartan fan in the contest by completing the entry form at msufcu.org/specialoffers/kickoffkids. Children must be between the ages of six and 11 years old to be entered. Parents/guardians will be contacted by MSUFCU at least five business days before the home MSU football game at which their child is selected to be a MSUFCU Kickoff Kid. Children/parents do not need to be MSUFCU members to win.

For the sixth year in a row, MSUFCU was named as a Top Workplace in the large employer category by the Detroit Free Press.
