Members of communities with inaugural season teams to announce picks

for the 2019 NFL Draft from live hometown events

NFL to honor legacy of first-ever NFL game by donating turf to Dayton, Ohio

PHOENIX, AZ: Nearly 100 years after the National Football League was born in Canton, Ohio, the NFL is celebrating the 13 communities that were home to the 14 teams of its inaugural season.

Eight “Original Towns” outside of the 32 current NFL markets will host live telecasts in their hometowns to announce picks on Day 3 of the Draft: Akron, Ohio; Canton, Ohio; Columbus, Ohio; Dayton, Ohio; Hammond, Indiana; Muncie, Indiana; Rochester, New York; and Rock Island, Illinois.

The hometown celebrations in these markets will showcase the town’s history alongside fans, NFL legends, celebrities, and elected officials. For the fifth consecutive year, picks will be made live by all 32 Clubs in their local markets at special locations of their choosing on Day 3. Clubs will make their picks across the country and around the world from a variety of locations, some of which include military bases, state landmarks, and major attractions.

“There’s no better way to bring the League’s hundred years of history full circle than to partner with these communities and recognize their important place in history as part of the NFL’s centennial celebration,” said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

To honor the lasting legacy of football and pave the way for future generations of football players, the NFL Foundation, in partnership with FieldTurf & Vasco – who will lead construction and installation – will fund the installment of a new artificial turf field in the city of Dayton, Ohio.

The field will commemorate the first-ever NFL game played at Triangle Park on October 3, 1920, between the Dayton Triangles and the Columbus Panhandles. Additionally, the Foundation will make a donation to each of the 13 “Original Towns” to support local youth football programs, advocate for player safety, and promote football’s values.

“This is a really special moment for our city,” said Nan Whaley, Mayor of Dayton, Ohio. “We’re excited that the NFL is recognizing the places that were there in the very beginning and that they are celebrating Dayton’s special history in paving the way for the league with a donation that will leave a lasting impact in the community.”

In celebration of NFL100, the League is proud to honor the following 13 “Original Towns”:

  • Akron, Ohio (Akron Pros)
  • Buffalo, New York (Buffalo All-Americans)
  • Canton, Ohio (Canton Bulldogs)
  • Chicago, Illinois (Racine Cardinals, Chicago Tigers)
  • Cleveland, Ohio (Cleveland Tigers)
  • Columbus, Ohio (Columbus Panhandles)
  • Dayton, Ohio (Dayton Triangles)
  • Decatur, Illinois (Decatur Staleys)
  • Detroit, Michigan (Detroit Heralds)
  • Hammond, Indiana (Hammond Pros)
  • Muncie, Indiana (Muncie Flyers)
  • Rochester, New York (Rochester Jeffersons)
  • Rock Island, Illinois (Rock Island Independents

ACADEMY AWARD® WINNER REGINA KING NARRATES​​

Correction: Official Trailer Debut


PHOENIX, AZ (March 25, 2019): In celebration of its centennial season, the National Football League (NFL) recently premiered A Lifetime of Sundays at its 2019 Annual Meeting in Scottsdale, Arizona. The documentary, part of the NFL’s initiative to celebrate the league’s 100th season – and to champion the women who have played an integral role in its history – offers an unprecedented look at the history of the NFL through the eyes of four iconic female owners: Virginia McCaskey, Martha Firestone Ford, Norma Hunt and Patricia Rooney.

It is narrated by Academy Award® winner Regina King and co-executive produced by Julie Haddon, Jane Skinner Goodell, and 11-time Emmy® Award-winner Bill McCullough and NFL Films.

A Lifetime of Sundays profiles four famously private women: Chicago Bears’ McCaskey, Detroit Lions’ Ford, Pittsburgh Steelers’ Rooney, and Kansas City Chiefs’ Hunt. They are the matriarchs of four American football families who, for the first time, share the history of the game from a very different perspective. What ties them together is not just their colorful memories, but their incredible passion and love of the game. The film takes viewers inside the personal and professional lives of these women, who have had front row seats as professional football has grown from very humble roots into a celebrated American institution and the country’s most popular sport.

“The experience of making A Lifetime of Sundays was as inspiring as the women themselves,” said Julie Haddon, Senior Vice President of Global Brand and Consumer Marketing. “We had unprecedented access and hours of firsthand interviews, coupled with anecdotes from players, coaches, family and fans. Our film proudly shines a light on the significant roles these women have played over a lifetime of football as they led teams in an era where women in leadership was not common. We’re excited to share this with audiences and honored to have Regina as our narrator.”

“I was thrilled to contribute to this amazing celebration of women in the NFL,” said Regina King. “I have loved this sport since I was a little girl and I hope this inspires women to seek out leadership positions in the NFL, in sports and in life.” ​

NFL teams into their offseason workout programs

PRESS RELEASE WRITTEN BY NFL COMMUNICATIONS; COURTESY NFLmedia.com

 

Voluntary offseason workout programs are intended to provide training, teaching and physical conditioning for players.  The calendar for 2019 is below.

As per Article 21 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, each club’s official, voluntary nine-week offseason program is conducted in three phases:

Phase One consists of the first two weeks of the program with activities limited to strength and conditioning and physical rehabilitation only.

Phase Two consists of the next three weeks of the program. On-field workouts may include individual player instruction and drills as well as team practice conducted on a “separates” basis. No live contact or team offense vs. team defense drills are permitted.

Phase Three consists of the next four weeks of the program. Teams may conduct a total of 10 days of organized team practice activity, or “OTAs”. No live contact is permitted, but 7-on-7, 9-on-7, and 11-on-11 drills are permitted.

Article 22 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement stipulates that clubs may hold one mandatory minicamp for veteran players. This minicamp, noted below, must occur during Phase Three of the offseason program.

New head coaches are entitled to conduct an additional voluntary veteran minicamp.  Any voluntary minicamp for veteran players must be conducted prior to the NFL Draft (April 25-27), but no earlier than week three of the club’s offseason workout program and after at least one week of the two weeks of Phase One activities that the clubs may hold pursuant to Article 21. This year, eight clubs will hold voluntary veteran minicamps, as noted below.

Each club may hold a rookie football development program for a period of seven weeks, which in 2019 may begin on May 13. During this period, no activities may be held on weekends, with the exception of one post-NFL Draft rookie minicamp, which may be conducted on either the first or second weekend following the draft. The dates of each club’s post-draft rookie minicamps will be circulated at a later date.

For specific information and detailed offseason program rules, please see Articles 21 and 22 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement (beginning on page 131), available on nflcommunications.com.

New Era Cap to serve as the exclusive apparel

and headwear provider of the NFL Scouting Combine

 

MARCH 25, 2019; PHOENIX, AZ: The National Football League today announced it has named international sports and lifestyle brand New Era Cap as the official outfitter of the NFL Scouting Combine.

Beginning with the 2020 NFL Scouting Combine, New Era will provide all performance apparel and headwear used by the approximately 300 Combine Participants including outerwear, baselayer, compressionwear, fleece, pants, shorts, caps, knits, headbands, socks and more. The announcement was made by Renie Anderson, Chief Revenue Officer and Executive Vice President of NFL Partnerships, at the League’s Annual Meeting in Phoenix, AZ.

The Scouting Combine partnership with New Era extends an already deep relationship with the Buffalo, NY based company that already serves as the official on-field cap of the NFL and holds the naming rights to New Era Field, home of the Buffalo Bills.

“The Scouting Combine has become one of our key off-season events and we are thrilled to welcome New Era with such an important role and partnership,” said Anderson. “New Era is a trusted partner on the field during the season and their caps are such a significant symbol at the NFL Draft. We look forward to them putting their mark on the NFL Scouting Combine.”

“We’re extremely excited to become the official outfitter of the NFL Combine and look forward to launching the collection next year,” said Christopher Koch, CEO of New Era Cap. “New Era is the official on-field cap of the NFL and we provide college football players with their caps as they join the pros. With this partnership, we will now provide apparel and own the NFL journey from the field at the Combine to the stage at the Draft.”

“New Era has been a premier partner of the Buffalo Bills for a decade and a very important part of our community for nearly a century,” said Kim Pegula, Buffalo Bills co-owner and president. “New Era’s local impact is especially apparent in Buffalo’s emerging business district, where its headquarters has become a must-see attraction that has accelerated additional downtown development. We are extremely proud to display New Era’s logo on our stadium. The NFL and its future stars will greatly benefit as New Era expands its league-wide role by providing all apparel and supporting the NFL Combine.”

As part of the agreement, both New Era and Outerstuff will hold retail rights to a variety of NFL Scouting Combine products.

The NFL Scouting Combine (National Invitational Camp) brings together over three hundred of the very best college football players who are invited to participate in four days of testing at Lucas Oil Field in Indianapolis, Indiana. Televised by NFL Network, top Executives, Coaching Staffs, Player Personnel Departments and Medical Personnel from all 32 NFL teams are on hand to evaluate these players for the upcoming NFL Draft.
