This month, the Pexlify team hosted our first annual Pexlify NFL Tailgate Party in London, followed by attending the New York Jets versus the Atlanta Falcons in Tottenham Stadium.
It was a great occasion and hopefully, everyone enjoyed the day out. We kicked things off in the Bricklayers Arms which was literally a stone’s throw away from the stadium.
In the event, we had NFL combine games set up with winners receiving NFL merchandise. With some libations on board, people started lining up and trying their hand at the games. The games included Quarterback Frame Game, 8ft Beer Pong Table, Corn Hole Toss game, Batak and Vertical Jump….and let’s just say, the Beer Pong table got hit hard.
On the day, we also had a smoking BBQ trailer offering tender smoked Brisket, smoked Chicken fillets, and delicious corn tacos. There was also an awesome live band playing American rock classics that really got everyone in the mood for the rest of the day.
Then shortly before 2 pm, we all headed over to the stadium for the game. To say the new Tottenham Stadium was impressive is an understatement. Definitely, one of, if not, the best stadium I’ve ever been in. And boy do the NFL know how to host an event.
At the start, there was an electric energy in the stadium, which grew to a climax after the anthems finished and five US fighter jets did a flyby and buzzed the whole stadium. The crowd went wild!
The Atlanta Falcons started the game strong, running out to a 17-0 lead before half-time. However, in the 3rd Quarter, the NY Jets fought back hard, however, the damage was done after their sluggish start. In the end, the game finished 27-20 to the Atlanta Falcons.
It was a fabulous day, and great to be back out meeting Salesforce AE’s, Customers, and Partners again. We want to thank all the attendees again and hopefully, we’ll see more of you next year...and yes, we’re already looking forward to 2022!
