While Courtyard has long been an NFL partner, this is the first time it's offering this opportunity to a lucky fan. However, it isn't really a gig for a casual spectator, and you'll need to know a whole lot more than just the difference between a fumble and field goal. They're looking for someone who not only has a deep knowledge of the game, but is also comfortable in front of the camera, since much of the content they'll be producing will be photo and video-driven. Beyond that, there are a few other qualifications worth noting, including an ability to "engage an audience both online and in-person" and membership in either the Marriott Rewards or SPG loyalty program. Also, you'll need to have a flexible schedule and be able to travel to games on October 28, November 4, November 19, and February 3, 2019.
To throw your hat in the ring, fill out the online form by 11:59pm September 23 and submit a 60-second video that highlights your NFL expertise and passion for the game. The winner will be announced on October 16, and kick off their fledgling new correspondent career shortly thereafter.
Then again, if you don't get picked, this season doesn't have to be a total bust, especially if you know where to find the best places to eat in every NFL stadium are.
