For every home game, the 49ers select two kids between the ages of 8 and 14 from the 49ers Kids Club to be the Kickoff Kid. Each week the Kickoff Kid is tasked with returning the official kicker's tee from the opening kickoff back to the sideline. The experience includes two upper level tickets to the game, two field passes, and 15 seconds of fame on the videoboard.

Faithful 49 is a rewards program for 49ers fans that issues "yards" as points, similar to airline miles, which can be cashed in for 49ers experiences and prizes including entries into this exclusive sweepstakes.
Entering the contest takes three easy steps: if you are not a member of the Faithful 49, you can become one here. Once you are logged in, click the Redeem button on the left side of your profile picture. Once on the redemption page, click the Kickoff Kid image. Simply press the Redeem button and your bid will be entered for your child to be our Kickoff Kid!
The Sweepstakes runs from December 1, 2015 until December 28, 2015 at 4:00 PM PT and each entry into the sweepstakes will cost 100 yards. Members are allowed an unlimited number of submissions for the sweepstakes. The more entries, the better one's chances are to win.
Members of Faithful 49 have opportunities to gain yards ranging from using #Faithful49 on Twitter to visiting the Esurance booth in the Faithful Mile presented by Safeway at every 49ers home game.
Looking for even more chances for your child to be the Kickoff Kid? Gold Members are randomly selected weekly during the season for this unique opportunity! You can sign up your child for the 49ers Kids Club Gold Membership by visiting 49ers.com/KidsClub
