"The difference between good and great is in the details, and no one knows that more than Gillette. When it comes to shaving, we have spent the last 110 years carefully engineering and refining our razors to give every man the advantage of Gillette's precision."

BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, Gillette® (NYSE: PG) kicks-off its “Best a FAN Can Get Sweepstakes” where fans across the country will have the opportunity to win NFL prizes, including one grand-prize winner who will receive a pair of season tickets to their favorite NFL Team – for the rest of their life. Five runners-up winners will also receive an all-inclusive package to Super Bowl XLVIII for two and additional prizes include the ultimate at-home Super Bowl takeover, footballs autographed by Clay Matthews, Visa® gift cards, NFL Shop discounts and free Gillette products.

For a chance to win instantly, fans can look for a game piece inside specially-marked Gillette Fusion ProGlide cartridge packs from October 1, 2013 through February 1, 2014, or while supplies last. Fans can also enter to win by requesting a game piece through the mail or entering the second chance drawing by visiting www.gillette.com/BestAFanCanGet. 1

In its fifth year as an official sponsor of the NFL, Gillette is helping NFL fans get closer to the game this year by providing unique and enhanced experiences all season long. In addition to “The Best a FAN Can Get Sweepstakes,” Gillette is giving fans a look at the precision behind the season’s most exciting plays through the “Precision Play of the Week” contest. Every week of the regular season on Gillette’s Facebook page, John Brenkus, Creator/Host of Sport Science, will provide a scientific breakdown of one of the prior week’s best plays. Fans are then invited to answer a question related to the play for the chance to win various prizes, with the grand prize being a trip to Super Bowl XLVIII in New York/New Jersey. 2

This season, Gillette has also teamed up with four star NFL players – Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews, New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz, New England Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola and Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin – to bring fans closer to the NFL’s peak performers and showcase a critical factor in making it to Super Bowl XLVIII – precision.

“Whether it’s on the field or off, some of life's most important and impactful moments are determined by the precision with which they are performed,” said Greg Via, Gillette’s director of global sports marketing. “The difference between good and great is in the details, and no one knows that more than Gillette. When it comes to shaving, we have spent the last 110 years carefully engineering and refining our razors to give every man the advantage of Gillette's precision.”

The Gillette Fusion ProGlide razor is Gillette’s number one razor for sensitive skin. NFL players are some of the toughest athletes but many have something in common with 70 percent of U.S. men – sensitive skin. When shaving sensitive skin, the equipment you use makes all the difference. With less tug and less pull 3, the Gillette Fusion ProGlide razor, provides unrivaled comfort even on sensitive skin 4.
