August 30 – Premier League or NFL, who has the bigger, better, faster, most skilful athletes? Whistle Sports in partnership with the NFL have picked up the challenge to find out via a series of tests that pits the athletes against each other.
Titled Game Recognize Game, the four-episode series features Spurs’ Harr Kane versus First Team All-Pro safety Landon Collins (New York Giants) in the first challenge to be released on social media networks today August 30.
The full series will be available on Whistle Sports’ Youtube and Facebook channels with the idea being that it will then be shared across social media by the NFL and Premier League, the teams and the players involved.
Other challenges see Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero take on three-time AP NFL Defensive Player of the Year JJ Watt (Houston Texans) in a kicking challenge on Friday, September 1; Victor Lindelof (Manchester United’s new boy from Sweden) takes on two-time Super Bowl Champion Danny Amendola (New England Patriots) on Monday, September 4; while Paul Pogba faces former Pro Bowl cornerback Josh Norman (Washington Redskins) on Tuesday, September 5.
The full detail of the challenges has not been revealed – so you have to watch the social media – but there is a trailer at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4R6cmll6Aag
