The air is getting crisp and the leaves are changing into their beautiful fall colors. You know what that means? It’s football season.
It’s not too late to purchase tickets to your favorite NFL team’s opening game. The 2019 season kicks off Thursday night in Chicago as the Bears battle the Green Bay Packers. It will be the 199th game in the NFL’s oldest rivalry, which the Packers have a 97-95-6 edge in the series.
The remaining 30 teams will see their first regular season action beginning on Sunday, Sept. 8. Go to tix4cause for tickets to the opening weekend or for games throughout the season and don’t be shy about sharing our site with your family and friends.
No other purveyor of box office bliss creates impact like tix4cause. Visitors to the site have access to both donated tickets as well as the same verifiable tickets found on major ticket sites. Tix4cause does not own or control tickets, rather it provides access through its technology platform that connects people to the tickets they want.
Our mission is simple: make every ticket purchase matter to a cause – at no extra cost. Tix4cause is a ticket doer not a ticket broker. With every exchange ticket purchase through its website, Tix4cause donates half its earnings to the cause selected by the purchaser. More than $850,000 has been donated to hundreds of ticket-buyer chosen charities. That’s a big win for a lot of people and charities in need.
And now you can make an even bigger impact, as the NFL, college football, NBA and NHL seasons heat up.
As for the NFL, everyone’s getting in on the milestone anniversary, including 97-year-old Betty White and Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning whose Peyton’s Places video series explores 100 years of the NFL. In one episode he dons a Walter Payton No. 34 Bears jersey and takes a jab at the Packers. Way to go Peyton!
Other Week 1 rivalry games include the Giants at the Cowboys, the Broncos at the Raiders, the Steelers at the Patriots, and the Redskins at the Eagles and the Bills at the Jets.
Here are some fun facts about the NFL:
- Nearly one in three people in the US (100 million) watch the Super Bowl each year
- 1943 was the year helmets were required of all players
- Peyton and Eli Manning are the only brothers to ever win the Super Bowl MVP award
- The Dallas Cowboys may be the most valuable franchises in all sports -- valued at more than $1.5 billion
- In 1932, the Bears had six tie games
Although I have friends and family who root for the Packers, twice a season our allegiances clash.
Go Bears! Beat the Pack!
Let’s all enjoy a great season and start it off by making a difference.
