NFL Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month

NFL CELEBRATES HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH

32 Hispanic Leaders Recognized During Hispanic Heritage Month in Every NFL Market

Teams designate home game in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month

 The National Football League and its teams will celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept.15 – Oct.15) with a series of special events focused in weeks 3 and 4 of the season.

All NFL teams will enhance the celebration with local efforts throughout the month including designated home games with in-stadium themed elements and local community outreach in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month.

For the 2014 celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, the NFL, Hispanic Heritage Foundation (HHF) and Verizon have partnered for the fourth annual NFL Hispanic Heritage Leadership Awards. The awards recognize the contributions of Hispanic leaders in each NFL market. Each award recipient will be recognized in-stadium at a Hispanic Heritage game in their local market. With support from Verizon, each recipient will select a non-profit organization of their choice that serves the local Hispanic community to receive a $2,000 donation.

The Carolina Panthers and Kansas City Chiefs will host NFL PLAY 60 Character Camps as part of Hispanic Heritage Month celebrations. NFL PLAY 60 Character Camps were held in 12 NFL markets this summer and are presented in partnership with the Muñoz Agency and USA Football. The camps are part of the NFL’s year-round Hispanic outreach initiative, focused on offering youth opportunities to play and experience the game of football while emphasizing exercise and reinforcing the importance of character in athletics and life.

Throughout Hispanic Heritage Month, fans can visit www.NFL.com/HispanicHeritage for a look at the personal stories of Hispanic players past and present who have left a lasting legacy on the NFL.

A national spotlight will shine on the NFL’s celebration during Thursday Night Football, Sunday Night Football and Monday Night Football broadcasts in weeks 3 and 4 which will highlight in-stadium elements as well as community events.
