Cheez-It® takes pre-game rituals to absurd heights with 'Feelin' the Cheeziest' Hotel Rooms and On-Field Suites – decked-out rooms on and off the field that look and feel straight out of a Cheez-It box

BATTLE CREEK, Mich., Dec. 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Cheez-It®, the cheeziest sponsor of college football with four years of Cheez-It Bowl action and the title partner of the new Cheez-It Citrus Bowl, is giving football players and fans even more reasons to wake up "Feelin the Cheeziest." This year, the brand is creating exclusive Cheez-It "Feelin' the Cheeziest" Hotel Rooms: four hotel rooms at the official team hotels that look and feel straight out of a Cheez-It box.

Cheez-It aims to ink its first-ever name, image and likeness (NIL) deals with four of the most absurdly cheezy Cheez-It Bowl and Cheez-It Citrus Bowl players having the chance to check-in to hotel rooms the night before their respective showdowns to wake up "Feelin' the Cheeziest" – next-level excitement and waking up amped up for an epic game day. The selected ACC and Big 12 (Cheez-It Bowl) and SEC and Big Ten (Cheez-It Citrus Bowl) conference athletes will spend the night in decked-out hotel rooms with Cheez-It box bedside table lamps, Cheez-It orange and yellow mood lighting and unbe-cheez-able plush pillows for the cheeziest sleep of their dreams.  

"For years we've created absurdly satisfying game day experiences for fans, but this year we're bringing the over-the-top excitement only Cheez-It can give directly to players," said Erin Storm, brand senior director for Cheez-It. "By offering the cheeziest players the full Cheez-It experience via our first-ever NIL deal, we hope to take team spirit to the next level and give them a one-of-a-kind stay before a one-of-a-kind matchup."

In true Cheez-It fashion, the absurdly satisfying action does not stop there! Select lucky fans will have the chance to spend the night before the 2022 Cheez-It Bowl at Camping World Stadium, and then watch the game from the Cheez-It "Feelin' the Cheeziest" On-Field Suites. These absurdly cheezy hotel room replicas, positioned in the endzone at Camping World Stadium, deliver everything fans need to take their cheering to champion levels with Cheez-It sofas, blankets, pillows and – that's right – a luxurious Cheez-It bed. Fans who attend the official Cheez-It Bowl pep rallies on Dec. 28 at Pointe Orlando will have a chance to win. For official rules, click here (no purchase necessary).

"We are excited to offer select fans the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to spend the night in Camping World Stadium before game day, a place that has hosted so many meaningful Cheez-It moments," said Storm. "Lucky fans will experience the Cheez-It Bowl magic from the moment they wake up – ensuring they're ready to bring next-level game day energy right from the endzone."
