Do you love the Philadelphia Eagles, but can't devote inordinate amounts of time to the team because you feel the need to incessantly play Angry Birds on your smart phone?
I've got some good news for you.
The Eagles are teaming up with Rovio Entertainment to launch an all-new version of the insanely popular Angry Birds game. The game, which will be featured exclusively on the Eagles Facebook Page will launch on September 4th. Sixteen (16) free levels will be featured, with a new level unlocking the day after each Eagles regular season game. To identify specifically with the Eagles brand, a new character, Mighty Philadelphia Eagle, will be introduced as well.
The Eagles have also designed a promotion around the launch of the game, as they're hosting a September 4th 'Back to Football' event at Love Park which will feature players, cheerleaders, SWOOP, and a real-life version of the Angry Birds game, inspired by K'NEX.
Finally, the new Might Philadelphia Eagle character will also make a two-week tour around the Greater Philadelphia area, giving fans the opportunity to win season tickets by uploading their photos with the Mighty Philadelphia Eagle to the Eagles Facebook page (more details can be found on the page itself).
