Geaux Green is an initiative of the New Orleans Super Bowl Host Committee.

The window for Sweepstakes entries is now closed.

Play the Geaux Green game for a chance to win a Super Bowl XLVII prize pack — and help your team win the prize for having the most eco-friendly fans! There are two ways to win when you play:

  1. By playing, you’ll be entered to win 2 tickets to the big game — Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans. You'll also receive an airfare credit and 2 nights of accommodation.
  2. By identifying your favorite team when you sign up, you’ll help your team to win bragging rights for having the most eco-friendly fans.

Playing the game is easy … just select from a list of actions you are willing to take over the next year to save energy and reduce carbon emissions. We’ll be keeping track of how many fans sign up on behalf of each team and announce a team winner in January, along with the winner of the Super Bowl XLVII prize pack!

And here’s the kicker: Entergy is partnering with the New Orleans Super Bowl Host Committee and has agreed to match the pledged carbon reductions of all Geaux Green game players. Entergy will do this by purchasing carbon “offsets” that result in additional reductions in carbon emissions.  

So get in the game!  Together with the New Orleans Host Committee and Entergy, you can make a major impact … and win!
