How UCF Football Changed the Game with QR Code Jerseys

If there’s one thing every higher education and/or sports marketer knows, it’s how hard it is to make headlines during the off-season…unless a team does something so radical that everyone can’t stop talking about it, right? 

Last spring, the University of Central Florida’s athletics content marketing team went viral when they swapped the football team’s jersey numbers for their Twitter handles during the first spring game. This year, they took the experimental strategy one step further debuting QR codes on the jerseys, setting new trends and stealing headlines.
