Quick Hit, Inc. (“QUICKHIT”), a leading developer and publisher of free social sports games, made news in advance of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), announcing that it has secured a multi-year NFL license from the National Football League. Under the terms of the agreement, QUICKHIT will have the right to use NFL trademarks in its successful free-to-play, browser-based game, QUICKHIT Football. Although the financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, the license includes the 32 NFL team names, logos, colors, uniform and helmet designs, as well as the Super Bowl, NFC, AFC, and Pro Bowl logos.
“This agreement represents an exceptional opportunity to partner with the National Football League in the exploding digital and social gaming space,” said Jeffrey Anderson, QUICKHIT’s founder and CEO. “Their focus on quality and authenticity is the same as ours, and we look forward to working closely with them.”
QUICKHIT’s agreement with the NFL will provide compelling game play for football fans of all ages. Starting with the 2010 season, online fans will be able to show their support and affinity for a given NFL team by customizing their QUICKHIT Football team. Options will include the ability to choose the logos, colors and uniforms of their favorite NFL team, select plays that are consistent with that team’s style of play, and much more.
“We are excited to partner with QUICKHIT and enhance the gaming experience online for our fans,” said Hans Schroeder, Vice President of Media Strategy and Development at the NFL. “This partnership is a key part of our goal to expand and enrich the online experience for NFL fans throughout the year.”
Attendees at E3 can catch a sneak peek of the game’s new NFL trailer and hear more about QUICKHIT Football at the company’s booth in the South Hall (Booth #3013), including an exclusive event on Wednesday, June 16th, from 4:00-6:00 p.m.

In just a few months, the game attracted more than a million users. QUICKHIT Football features NFL personalities like Super Bowl-winning coaches Bill Cowher and Brian Billick, as well as players like Randy Moss, Ray Lewis, Brian Westbrook, Barry Sanders, Randall Cunningham, and more.
