'Bud Light Showtime Cam' will debut during the first game of the 2020 NFL season when the Kansas City Chiefs host the Houston Texans on Thursday, September 10, and will be featured at future match-ups throughout the 2020 season.
"We are excited to bring this one of a kind experience to life this season, when our fans are craving connection more than ever.
