When it moved headquarters to its new Midtown location in 2011, the NFL wanted to design an office that creatively reflected its culture. In that spirit, each floor of the new workspace was exquisitely decorated to represent one of the four pillars of the NFL—the 32 teams, the fans, the game, and continuous innovation—with inspired design, visionary architecture, and an open floor plan that reflects the organization’s collaborative spirit.
More Than A Game
In its more than 90 years of dedication to the game of football, the NFL’s continuous commitment to innovation has pushed it to evolve beyond the stadium into a sports and entertainment empire. With offices around the world producing games, events, news, films, children shows, and other media, the NFL strives to satisfy its fans’ love of engaging content on everything football 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Founded in 1920, the NFL’s mission is to showcase the League and its teams, uphold and preserve the integrity of the game of football, and reach the broadest possible audience of fans. The highest level of professional football in the U.S.—and the official source for everything football—the NFL seeks to define the football lifestyle and create the ultimate game experience for its fans.
A Lasting Legacy
The NFL wanted its headquarters to showcase its impressive legacy, and so it commissioned unique art to symbolize that heritage. Commanding visitors’ attention in the foyer, a custom-made abstract sculpture—modeled after the football atop the Lombardi Trophy—and a built-in Super Bowl ring display case show off the glamour and prestige of the nation’s football organization.
