Xbox Australia have announced that Australian NFL Icon Jarryd Hayne will appear at the Microsoft Store in Sydney on Saturday to meet with fans and play Xbox One in celebration of Super Bowl 50.

The former NRL star will be at the Pitt Street Flagship Store from 12:00-1:30 PM this Saturday to greet fans and start the sporting celebrations – part of which will see the store transform into a fans playground, culminating in an exclusive Super Bowl 50 viewing party on Monday.

One lucky fan will also get the chance to battle the running back on the virtual field as part of an exclusive, Xbox ‘Game with Fame’ experience on Madden 16. For more information, visit the Microsoft Store Sydney Facebook or Twitter page.

Jarryd Hayne had the below to say:

“It’s great to be back on home soil and I’m really looking forward to meeting the fans and having some fun with them at the Microsoft Store. As a big Xbox fan myself, I’m excited about the opportunity to play with fellow gamers in Sydney,”
