It’s nearly time for all things pumpkin spice, trick-or-treating and, for sports fans, one of the best times of the year — football season.

This year, if you love football for more than just the game and are patiently waiting for all the good grub you’ll no doubt encounter tailgating and at parties, sports-betting website Pickswise is looking for you. Now through Sept. 9, they’ll be giving away not only $500, but also the chance to become their official food-tester for the NFL.

Pickswise is looking for someone to go to games, eat the best signature dishes at stadiums throughout the league, then give the verdict on which team has the best food. The person selected will get $500, tickets to go to some NFL games for the 2019 season and expenses to eat at the stadium.

To apply, just head to Pickswise’s Twitter account and reply to the pinned competition tweet by sending a picture of yourself at a game, eating food or both — the more creative the better. Be sure to include @PickswiseNFL with the #NFLFoodTester and follow the account. The winner will be chosen at random on Sept. 15.

You must be at least 21 years old to enter, and there is a limit of one entry per person. If the winner cannot be contacted or has not claimed the prize within 48 hours, Pickswise may offer the prize to someone else.

If you’re chosen, you will receive tickets to a minimum of three to five NFL games, plus an allowance to buy one signature dish at each stadium. The prize does not include travel or accommodation, so you will need to make sure you can afford to travel to the games and possibly stay in hotels before entering the contest. However, you could use the $500 for some of your travel and accommodations.

So, what are some signature NFL dishes you may be able to try if you win? Pickswise hasn’t said which dishes it wants testers to try, but there are some truly outrageous food options at stadiums across the continent. Some are outsized, and some are super creative: FedEx Field, home to the Washington Redskins, has a 3-pound burrito on the menu, and Detroit’s Comerica Park has apple pie egg rolls.
