The campaign will include a Medifast branding presence on und.com and in-game radio advertisements during Notre Dame football broadcasts, recorded by the voice of Notre Dame football, Don Criqui.

"Partnering with one of the most iconic sports brands in the world will allow us to help even more people achieve their weight-loss goals and increase Medifast's brand awareness."

The campaign will direct fans of Notre Dame football to MedifastNow.com where they can learn more about the Medifast 5 & 1 Plan and the many support options Medifast offers. The Medifast 5 & 1 Plan consists of eating five Medifast Meals and one Lean & Green Meal per day. Medifast provides customers over 70 different meal choices.
