For the second year in a row, the NFL was back in Mexico City as the Oakland Raiders hosted the New England Patriots at Estadio Azteca on November 19, 2017. Fans from around Mexico and those who traveled from the United States showed tremendous support for the Oakland Raiders and the Bud Light Good Sport message. 323 responsible fans autographed a responsibility wall and received a free souvenir photo for pledging to be a Good Sport, the designated driver for their group.
The positive contributions made by TEAM are far reaching. Its mission is important to fans and spectators in stadiums, but its message also contributes to responsible conduct in our communities at large. The NFL strongly supports the TEAM program, and we are proud to be a member of the TEAM Coalition.Roger Goodell, Commissioner, National Football League
Anheuser-Busch has led our industry in promoting responsible drinking for more than 30 years and the Bud Light Good Sport designated driver program reminds fans who choose to drink, to do so responsibly and get their friends home safely. We all share the same streets after the game. This partnership with the Raiders, TEAM and the fans displays our collective responsibility to help keep our roads safe.Katja Zastrow, Vice President, Corporate Social Responsibility-Better World, Anheuser-Busch
Teamwork is exactly what this organization is all about. The success of the Responsibility Has Its Rewards campaign is a direct result of the commitment from our members and all the designated driver program partners, including the tracks, concessionaires, beer companies and beer distributors. Teamwork is what this campaign is all about. We are demonstrating that when everyone – including the fans – takes responsibility, everyone wins.Jill Pepper, Executive Director, TEAM Coalition

• Many, if not most of those lives would have been saved if people did not drive when they were impaired by alcohol or if they used sober, designated drivers or if they simply wore their seat belts.
• Statistics and research clearly show that 21-34 year old males are the demographic most likely to be involved in an automobile crash
