Visa Inc. Ranking Shows Titans Fans Top the Nation in Financial Literacy

Financial Football Competition Ranks NFL Fansí Money Management Abilities

San Francisco, California – January 4, 2011 – Are fans of the Tennessee Titans the most financially literate in the nation? The current leaderboard on Visa Inc.'s free, online personal finance video game, Financial Football shows that fans of the Titans have notched the most wins among the 32 NFL teams.

In Financial Football, players advance down the field and score by correctly answering personal finance questions. Titans fans have demonstrated their financial literacy by currently leading the league with an impressive 614 wins, followed closely by the Texans, Saints, and Patriots. Conversely, the Rams rank at the bottom with 45 Financial Football wins. The complete ranking, which is updated on a real time basis, can be seen at: www.practicalmoneyskills.com/leaderboard.

"Titans fans are financial literacy MVPs," said Jason Alderman, Senior Director of Financial Education at Visa. "Their showing on the real-life gridiron of personal finance is truly impressive."

Financial Football combines the structure and rules of the NFL with financial education questions of varying difficulty to create an innovative approach for helping people of all ages learn about money management. The game is available in English or Spanish and can be played online or ordered at no cost at www.practicalmoneyskills.com/football. The leaderboard ranking is constantly in flux and fans can improve their team's standing by playing the game.
