The NFL American football league has launched a new competition that will offer a pair of season tickets to the winning fan’s preferred team for a whole century.

The ‘Tickets for 100 Years’ competition has been launched to mark the league’s centennial season.

To enter the competition, fans simply need to describe how they are their favourite team’s biggest fan of the century in a social media post, tagging @NFL and #NFL100Contest in a picture or video on Instagram or in a post on Twitter.

The winner will be based on how creative the fan is with his or her post, with the competition running until midnight on April 7. Three finalists will be flown to Nashville, where the winner will be announced live during the first-round presentation of the 2019 NFL Draft on April 25.

The winner will be able to hand the season tickets down to future generations whilst also having access to exclusive team experiences and an NFL Shop lifetime discount.

The NFL100 campaign, which was launched at the Super Bowl at the start of February, will feature a series of competitions and fan experiences through to the next edition of the championship game in Miami on February 2, 2020.

“The NFL was built on multi-generational fandom that bonds people together,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said.

“Giving someone a century’s worth of NFL season tickets may be the single greatest sports prize ever offered to a fan. It represents 100 years filled with incredible memories to share with the people who matter most.

“This is the first of a fan-focused series that speaks to the spirit of the ‘Fantennial’ celebration at the heart of our centennial year.”
