Turn Of The Century: For It’s 100th Season, NFL Eyes Year-Long Activation Celebration

NYSJ Sports-Entertainment Business News Service

October 19, 2018:
What do George Burns, Bob Hope, Kirk Douglas and the NFL have in common?

Hitting the century mark.

According to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, on Sept. 17, 1920, a group of men gathered in Canton, Ohio at the Hupmobile showroom of Ralph Hay, owner of the hometown Bulldogs.

The result of that meeting was the birth of the American Professional Football Association, renamed in 1922 as the National Football League.

Beginning at Super Bowl LIII this February, the NFL will undertake a year-long celebration with a series of "NFL 100" events, initiatives and programming centered around fans, players and communities,

Marketing will include all NFL league partners, local activation and efforts across all NFL media partners.

"For nearly 100 years, the NFL has been part of the fabric of America, unifying communities and bringing fans together to support their favorite teams and players," NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said via the league.

”We have the greatest fans in the world. Next year, we will join our fans in celebrating what this incredible game means to each of us."

A special "NFL 100" logo, unveiled during halftime of this past week’s Thursday Night Football game, will be prominently displayed throughout the 100th season.

That includes celebrations on the field, in stadiums, game broadcasts, NFL Films and NFL Network programming, and digital and social media content. In addition, the "NFL 100" logo will be featured on game balls and on every player's game jersey in the neck area.

NFL partners will also use the logo in activations and on an array of merchandise.

‘”NFL 100" will officially kick off at Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta with marketing and fan-themed activation.

It will also be featured during such off-season events as the Draft in Nashville and enshrinement week at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton.

The celebration will build to the start of the 2019 season in September and continue throughout the season, culminating at Super Bowl LIV in February 2020 in Miami.

Among the planned celebratory programs:

• Weekends in local team markets will bring together high school football programs with fan festivals and NFL games that celebrate past, present and future players and coaches.

• A blue-ribbon panel of former players, general managers, coaches, NFL historians and media will select the All-Time Team and the ten greatest coaches in NFL history.

The All-Time Team and many other on-field accomplishments will be celebrated throughout next year.

• NFL Media — including NFL Network and NFL Films — will offer original programming and content to celebrate the 100th season across multiple platforms.

Additional activation will be unveiled in the coming weeks and months..
