The National Football League and its teams will celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with a series of special events during Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15-October 15).
The theme of this year’s Hispanic Heritage Month recognition is “Feel the Orgullo.” In Spanish, the word “orgullo” means pride. Latino players, fans, and coaches have a strong sense of pride not only in their culture but in their team and the NFL. During Hispanic Heritage Month, the NFL and its 32 teams will amplify the rich history, heritage and tradition of Latinos, and honor the positive impact they have had on the game and country.
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. Follow @NFLEspanol on Twitter for details on a user-generated photo contest during which fans will be encouraged to join the conversation and share their pride with the hashtag #FeelTheOrgullo on Twitter and Instagram. Through September 26, participants will be able to submit photos according to unique themes related to game day rituals, family, team spirit and more!
NFL teams will enhance the celebration with local efforts throughout the month including in-stadium themed elements and local community outreach in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month.
