“Last season, we saw an outpouring of interest and passion from football fans across the country,” Mike Kelly, evp-marketing for Phillips-Van Heusen, said in a statement. “This year we are amplifying their experience, by providing them with an engaging platform to voice their opinions and we are even calling on the Hall of Famers to get their views on these age-old debates.”

The "Fan’s Choice" effort does not affect official Pro Football Hall of Fame voting other than offer fans and consumers a venue to express their opinions. Last season nearly 1.5 million votes were cast to determine the Fan’s Choice Class of 2010. The fans voted for 2010 Hall of Fame inductees Jerry Rice and Emmitt Smith.

Support includes a coordinated effort across Facebook.com and Madden EA 2011 in-game messaging. The Fan’s Choice campaign will be visible at more than 1,110 JCPenney stores nationwide with instore signage and displays featuring Steve Young "encouraging football fans and shoppers to visit the dedicated Web site.

An 80 x 60 foot Times Square Billboard at 42nd and Broadway will feature Steve Young, Warren Moon, Jerry Rice and Roger Staubach.

The campaign will conclude on Feb. 5, 2011, when the Fan’s Choice Class is revealed on national TV prior to the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2011 inductee announcement, which will be done in Dallas during Super Bowl XLV events..
