Hatch Show Print to Sell Team Posters Created for the 2019 NFL Draft
Nashville, Tenn., May 22, 2019 – Hatch Show Print, the historic, 140-year-old Nashville letterpress print shop, announced today it will sell limited quantities of the letterpress posters it created for each of the NFL's 32 teams for the 2019 NFL Draft. The posters are only available through pre-order via the Hatch Show Print website,www.HatchShowPrint.com.

Late last year, the NFL commissioned Hatch Show Print to develop custom posters for the 2019 NFL Draft. Each poster was designed specifically with each team's fan base in mind. Hatch Show Print's team of designer/printers worked directly with the NFL and researched each of the 32 teams to gain an understanding of who the team is and who they represent. Team slogans, logos and history were all incorporated into the designs.

The Hatch Show Print team, led by Associate Director Celene Aubry, pulled from its extensive collection of wood type, ranging in size from half an inch to sixteen inches, to create these posters that celebrate the NFL through typography-driven design. For each poster, the shop's team of designer/printers set the wood and metal type by hand, and produced the work on 50- to 100-plus-year-old printing presses.

"To be able to tell the story of each team and their fans through a Hatch Show Print poster is something that is unique and truly Nashville," said Aubry. "It's really gratifying to experience the excitement fans everywhere have for something we make with our hands, using materials that have passed through five generations of designers and printers working in this shop."

Hatch Show Print posters were prominently featured throughout the NFL's creative kit for a NFL Draft that [/Pages/2019-NFL-DRAFT-REACHES-NEW-HEIGHTS-AND-RECORD-NUMBERS---47.5-MILLION-VIEWERS-AND-600,000-FANS-IN-ATTENDANCE-.aspx]broke records in both attendance in Nashville and television viewership.  

"It's been amazing to see how these custom Hatch Show Print team posters from the NFL Draft have resonated with fans, whether they were on the ground in Nashville, or simply viewed on television or social media," said Julie Haddon, NFL Senior Vice President of Global Brand and Consumer Marketing. "The design of these posters captured the spirit of Nashville while uniquely reflecting each team. We're thrilled that we were able to continue our work with Hatch Show Print to deliver NFL fans with a keepsake from one of the most entertaining and memorable NFL Draft experiences in recent history." ​

NFL FOUNDATION/LISC GRASSROOTS FIELD GRANT PROGRAM PROVIDES $3 MILLION FOR NEW AND REFURBISHED COMMUNITY FOOTBALL FIELDS IN 14 CITIES NATIONWIDE
Nearly $61 million in grants committed since 1998, resulting in 365 neighborhood fields
                                                                       
NEW YORK – MAY 21, 2019 – Community organizations, schools, and parks in 14 cities across the country will receive grants totaling $3 million from the NFL Foundation/LISC Grassroots Field Grant Program – a partnership between the NFL Foundation and Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), the nation's leading community development support organization – to build or refurbish neighborhood football fields, it was announced today.
Since 1998, the NFL Foundation/LISC Grassroots Field Grant Program has provided nearly $61 million to support the creation or refurbishment of 365 fields nationwide. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the NFL Foundation/LISC partnership, while the NFL is also celebrating its 100th season.
This funding cycle will include new fields, or field enhancements in the following cities: Atlanta, Baltimore; Boston; Brooklyn, N.Y.; Chicago; Greenburg, Pa.; Houston; Indian Trail, N.C.; Miami; Philadelphia; Phoenix; Racine, Wis.; Rome, Ga.; and Yelm, Wash.
The fields in these cities are newly built or significantly renovated, with improvements such as irrigation systems, lights, bleachers, scoreboards, goal posts and turf. Grassroots grants are issued once established funding thresholds are reached for each project.
"For the last 20 years, the NFL Foundation and LISC have helped to create new community playing fields and revitalized old ones in neighborhoods throughout the country," saidALEXIA GALLAGHER, Senior Director of Philanthropy & Executive Director, NFL Foundation at National Football League. "With more than one million youth using these fields, which provide safe places for families to come together and participate in sports, the benefits of the NFL Foundation/LISC Grassroots Field Grant Program are indisputable."
LISC identifies local, nonprofit and community-based agencies that have an interest in building or refurbishing football fields in schools and neighborhood parks. Through the program, the local agencies are provided with the necessary financing and technical assistance to improve the quality and safety of fields in their communities. The agencies oversee the construction, maintenance and programming of the fields. ​​
"Our work with the NFL Foundation fits perfectly with LISC's mission, to forge resilient and inclusive communities of opportunity across America," said MAURICE JONES, LISC President and CEO. "Great places to live, work, visit, do business and raise families. Local athletic fields are a critical part of that and we look forward to bringing additional fields to neighborhoods throughout the country."
The 2019 Grassroots funding cycle will begin May 15th and the deadline for proposal submissions is August 30, 2019. Details are here.

NFL-NFLPA JOINT AGREEMENTS TO PROTECT THE HEALTH, SAFETY AND WELLNESS OF NFL PLAYERS
​FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 20, 2019​
NEW YORK, N.Y. – May 20, 2019 – The NFL and NFL Players Association today announced two joint agreements that will support further resources directed to address pain management and behavioral health. First, the NFL and NFLPA will work together to address the challenges of pain management for our current players and work to advance and understand the science in this area to improve potential treatments. The second agreement builds on the substantial player behavioral and mental health care resources available to NFL players with additional programs directed toward education, prevention, and overall behavioral health throughout the league.
Prescription Medication and Pain Management
The NFL and NFLPA will form a Joint Pain Management Committee including medical experts appointed by both the league and union, which will establish uniform standards for club practices and policies regarding pain management and the use of prescription medication by NFL players as well as conduct research concerning pain management and alternative therapies. The Joint Committee will also receive periodic reports from a newly-developed Prescription Drug Monitoring Program that will monitor all prescriptions issued to NFL players by club physicians and unaffiliated physicians. Prior to the start of the 2019 NFL Season, each NFL club must appoint a Pain Management Specialist who possesses certain agreed-upon credentials, including active engagement in pain management as part of his or her medical practice.
Behavioral and Mental Health Care
The NFL and NFLPA will form a Comprehensive Mental Health and Wellness Committee,which will develop educational programs for players, coaches, club personnel and players' family members regarding mental health and wellness. Additionally, the Committee will collaborate with local and national mental health and suicide prevention organizations to reduce stigma related to mental health and promote suicide prevention and awareness. The NFL and NFLPA will also now formally mandate that each team retains a Behavioral Health Team Clinician focused on supporting players' emotional and mental health and well-being. Each Team Clinician must possess certain minimum qualifications and be retained and jointly approved by the NFL and NFLPA by the start of Training Camp for the 2019 season. The Team Clinician is required to be available to players at the team facility for at least 8-12 hours per week, and must, among other responsibilities, conduct mandatory mental health educational sessions for players and coaching staff. The Clinician must also create and conduct team rehearsals of a Mental Health Emergency Action Planto implement for the upcoming season.
This summer, the NFL and NFLPA will convene sessions with head team physicians, head team internal medicine physicians, head athletic trainers, Behavioral Health Team Clinicians, Pain Management Specialists, and others to discuss the requirements in both agreements, among other topics. Adherence to both agreements is mandatory across all clubs.

In total across Nielsen-measured channels, all NFL Draft telecasts combined to reach more than 47.5 million viewers over the three-day event, up +5% vs. 2018.

This was the second straight year that all seven rounds of the live, three-day event were aired on broadcast television.
The collaborative distribution approach across NFL Media and The Walt Disney Company helped grow the combined rating and viewership by +11% and +8% respectively over 2018.
In addition to media consumption, the 2019 NFL Draft shattered records for attendance as over 600,000 fans fill the streets of Nashville to celebrate the newest class of NFL rookies, easily establishing a new record (250k in 2017 – Philadelphia).

"The 2019 NFL Draft was a tremendous continuation of the celebration of the NFL's 100thseason and an opportunity to welcome the next generation of stars," said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. "Dramatic and emotional storylines played out in cities across the country with the energetic host city of Nashville serving as a breathtaking backdrop to hundreds of thousands of passionate fans who lined the streets and enjoyed a unique NFL Draft Experience. We congratulate our newest players and their families and thank the Tennessee Titans, the Nashville Convention and Visitors Corp., the City of Nashville, the volunteers, and everyone who made the Draft such a memorable, entertaining, and successful experience."
