It seems like everyone wants a piece of the NFL these days. There’s Taylor Swift cozying up with Kansas City’s tight end Travis Kelce, and thus bringing an army of Swifties into the football fold. And then there’s Jameson Whiskey, campaigning for the NFL to offer a game in Dublin, Ireland.

According to a recent study from the company, 79% of football fans would be interested in traveling to an international city to watch a pro American football game. The league is already hosting five international games in Europe this season, including a game this Sunday at London’s Wembley Stadium. Now, Jameson wants to make Dublin the league’s next international city, in an “unofficial” call for a regular season NFL game to take place in the Irish city.

In order to garner support for their campaign, Jameson is encouraging fans aged 21 and up to “join the huddle” in calling for a game to be played in Dublin. To join, you just have to enter your information over at JamesonSports.com. In addition to your support, you’ll be entered to instantly win some Jameson football merch, plus a chance to be one of 50 people selected to receive free flights to attend a Dublin football game in the future.

“If a pro American football game in Dublin is announced by September 13, 2024, Jameson will celebrate by selecting (50) fans who joined our huddle to win a flight to Dublin for them and a guest,” the Jameson huddle web page states.“In my 17-year pro football career I saw firsthand how the game is growing internationally. Frankfurt, Mexico City and London are great cities that have hosted games, but Jameson and I have a bigger idea,” Fitzpatrick said in a statement. “The Jameson Touchdown in Dublin is our unofficial call for a pro regular season game to be played in Dublin. If a regular season game is announced next year we’re even going to fly 100 fans to Dublin to celebrate!”

In order to be eligible to win, you’ll need to enter the sweepstakes by 11:59 pm ET on December 31, 2023 and be a resident of the US.Want more Thrillist? Follow us on InstagramTikTokTwitterFacebookPinterest, and YouTube.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
