NYPD - FDNY FUN CITY BOWL COMING TO FOX SPORTS 1

Gridiron Game Pitting Finest vs. Bravest Airs in February During Run-Up to Super Bowl XLVIII

Buck, Aikman and Siragusa Call Sunday's Game at Hofstra University

New York - The Fun City Bowl is the annual football game between the New York City Police and Fire departments, and FOX Sports is providing unprecedented NFL-quality coverage to this year's clash of heroes.

Lead NFL on FOX play-by-play announcer Joe Buck and analyst Troy Aikman call the action, with Tony Siragusa patrolling the sidelines when the NYPD Finest and FDNY Bravest square-off on Sunday, June 2, at Hofstra University's James M. Shuart Stadium in Hempstead, NY. The game is being produced by an NFL on FOX crew, and this marks the first time the contest between the Finest and Bravest is earmarked for national television. Condensed coverage of the game airs on FOX Sports 1, America's new sports network launching August 17, as a companion to the FOX Sports Originals documentary BEING: THE FINEST. Specific dates and air times are to be announced.

BEING: THE FINEST is a documentary special that examines how the NYPD football team's love of the game is measured through the players' demanding work and home lives. The documentary also pays tribute to Officer Joe Pritchard, a member of the team who was killed in a car accident shortly before the 2013 season began. The Finest have retired Pritchard's No. 1 jersey and carry it with them to practices and games. The team has dedicated this season to him.

The NYPD Finest and FDNY Bravest have faced each other on the gridiron every year since 1973. The Finest lead the all-time series, 26-14, but the Bravest have won the last two meetings. Since 2005, the series is tied, 4-4. The semi-professional teams play in the National Public Safety League and are both non-profit organizations.
