The NFL announced that the NFL Fan of the Year will launch on July 29 in conjunction with Training Camp: Back Together Weekend.  

The Fan of the Year presented by Captain Morgan celebrates extraordinary fans who inspire others to spice up the game and who have been a positive influence and rallying force across their family, friends, and community.

Beginning July 29, fans can submit themselves or another deserving fan for consideration to become their team’s Fan of the Year at

“We are excited to spotlight our incredible fans through the NFL Fan of the Year program,” said Bobby Gallo, NFL Senior Vice President of Club Business Development. “Our fans continue to spice up the game, they bring their energy all year long, and they consistently show their passion for the game and their favorite team. We are thrilled to expand the Fan of the Year program to show our appreciation and to further celebrate our fans.”

Each team will select a Fan of the Year to represent their club at Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas on February 11. The ultimate Fan of the Year will be named at NFL Honors, the NFL’s primetime award special which will take place during Super Bowl week in Las Vegas.

“There’s no question NFL fans are one of the most dedicated fanbases in sports,” said Anne Nosko, Vice President, Captain Morgan. “Win or lose, they show up for their teams week after week and deserve to be celebrated. That’s what the NFL Fan of the Year contest is all about and why Captain Morgan is thrilled to be a part of it, spicing things up as the official spiced rum of the NFL for our third year in a row.”

Throughout the regular season, all 32 Fan of the Year nominees will also receive a series of prizes and take part in exclusive experiences.

The submission window for the contest will open July 29 and remain open through 11:59 PM ET on October 2. Fans must be 21 or older to enter.

New in 2023, international fans will be recognized in a separate NFL international campaign.  This international campaign will launch in the fall, and more information will be available in the coming months.
