New York Giants fans are invited to a special viewing party this Sunday at Sportika Sports in Manalapan to watch the Giants-49ers game from San Francisco (4:25 kickoff) with former Big Blue running back Keith Elias. This is the second of two special viewing parties hosted by Sportika in partnership with Peter Grandich and Company and the Shore Sports Network at their state-of-the-art 170,000 square foot indoor sports complex.

Keith Elias

Elias was a fan favorite during three seasons with the Giants (1994-96) when the undrafted free agent made his mark as a third down running back and special teams standout. Prior to that, he was an All-State player at Lacey Township High School before a record-setting career at Princeton University where he was a two-time All American, Ivy League Player of the Year and Scholar-Athlete recipient.

Injuries plagued his stint with the Giants and he later signed with the Indianapolis Colts where he served as special teams captain during two seasons with the team before retiring due to a knee injury. Elias currently works as the NFL Player Engagement Director and is also a motivational speaker. He and his wife Christa are the proud parents of a 4-month old baby girl Avary.

Elias will be on hand from 4 pm through halftime of the Giants-49ers game to meet and talk with football fans. All attendees will receive a free personalized photo of Keith and are welcome to bring up to 3 items for him to autograph and he will gladly pose for pictures. Fans are welcome to watch the game on Sportika’s many TV’s, enjoy food and drink and enter a free drawing (21 and over) for a host of door prizes including:

  • Odell Beckham Jr. Football
  • Lawrence Taylor jersey
  • Jason Pierre Paul football
  • Victor Cruz mini-helmet
  • David Tyree mini-helmet and special coin
