The 2019 season of the National Football League (NFL) kicks off on September 5th and marks 100 years of professional football in the U.S., to the cheers of football fans across the country. Adding to the excitement, there will be a series of “NFL 100” events, initiatives, and programs to commemorate the 100th season, celebrating players, fans, and their communities all season long.
