Visa has signed a marketing deal with National Football League International. The agreement, which expires March 21, 1999, grants Visa exclusive card-category rights to use the logos, names, and colors of the NFL and its teams in the payment card category in Mexico and Japan, which play host to pre-season American football games.

Visa U.S.A. has held domestic NFL sponsorship rights since 1995 and that agreement has been extended through March 31, 2000.
