NFL Alumni Association Is Established

April 1, 1967

Founded in 1967, the NFL Alumni Association was formed to serve its retired player members and their families through the NFL Alumni Association and support youth and community charities through NFL Alumni Foundation. It was formed as an outgrowth of philanthropic and civic-minded impulses of men who performed at the highest level of the nation’s most popular spectator sport and used that experience as a springboard to success in later life.
