Ralph Hay Day 100 Year NFL Anniversary

Thursday, September 17, 2020

September 17th, 2020, is the CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION of the founding of the National Football League (NFL)! On this day in 1920, Ralph Hay (owner of the Canton Bulldogs) brought together 11 other team representatives to his auto dealership in downtown Canton, Ohio, to form a new football league (the "American Professional Football Association") that eventually would come to be called the National Football League (NFL).
