Each year, the AFCA works with each member of college football coaching staffs to highlight its organization with the inclusion of a patch on sideline apparel for the opening week of the season. In 2019, that initiative will include the CFB150 logo as part of the patch. The dual stacked logo (CFB150 & AFCA) has the support of the AFCA and will be seen on sidelines nationwide.
Both the AFCA and CFB150 will share content across digital platforms, with a focus on football’s development of coaches and leaders. In addition, the CFB150 will have a presence at the AFCA annual convention, scheduled for January 6-9, 2019 in San Antonio, Texas.
“The AFCA is excited to partner with the College Football 150th Anniversary,” noted Todd Berry – AFCA Executive Director and a member of the CFB150 Board of Directors. “There are so many benefits provided by college football and we are happy to help showcase those to a broader audience through this celebration.”
