The National Football League and NBC has launched a new season of “Together We Make Football,” an invitation to anyone inspired by the game of football – whether as a player at any level or a fan – to share their story for a chance to win a trip to Super Bowl 50.

The campaign begins Sept. 11 and will unfold weekly throughout the NFL season. Segments will be shown each Friday on “Today” and wrap up with a nationally televised NFL Films special on NBC on divisional playoffs weekend.

Fans should go to today.com/twmf to share a video or photo with a description detailing how football inspires them. Stories submitted through Nov. 2, will be entered into the contest that will produce a winner of a trip to Super Bowl 50 in Santa Clara.

Following the deadline for submissions, a joint NFL and NBC panel will select five finalists whose stories will be turned into short features by NFL Films. The features will be unveiled weekly beginning Dec. 4 and the winning story will be announced live Jan. 8 on “Today.”

This is the latest iteration of the “Together We Make Football” campaign that launched in 2013. Over the past two years, thousands of fans shared their stories of what football means to them.
