The Washington Redskins found success in many ways in Monday’s victory over the New York Giants at FedEx Field. Not only did the Redskins win the game against the NFC East Divison rival, but Redskins fans also helped earn the Redskins points to maintain the lead in the Bud Light Good Sport Designated Driver Challenge. The Redskins, Bud Light and Techniques for Effective Alcohol Management (TEAM) Coalition partnered to promote responsible drinking and traffic safety at FedEx Field, encouraging fans to become designated drivers. Throughout the game, 1,857 fans made the pledge to be a Good Sport – a designated driver for their group. All the designated drivers had the opportunity to autograph a Redskins photo backdrop and take a free souvenir photo.

“For 30 years, Anheuser-Busch has led our industry in developing responsible drinking initiatives and Bud Light Good Sport, one of our most visible programs, promotes positive fan behavior through the use of designated drivers,” said Kathy Casso, vice president, Corporate Social Responsibility at Anheuser-Busch. “We all share the same streets after the game. This partnership with the National Football League, participating stadiums, concessionaires, TEAM Coalition and football fans displays our collective responsibility to help keep our roads safe.” “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 teams, beer companies and wholesalers,” said Jill Pepper, executive director of TEAM Coalition. “Teamwork is what this campaign is all about. We are demonstrating that when everyone – including the fans – takes responsibility, everyone wins.”
