Eagles Introduce “Fantennial Weekend” to Celebrate NFL’s 100th Season

I’ve spent the last few weeks complaining about the demise of public training camp, so it was nice to see this email hit the inbox.

The Eagles are rolling out a series of special events to celebrate the NFL’s 100th season, which will take place over the course of an entire weekend in September.

Here’s the full release with all of the details, including a fan festival on Cherry Street Pier, after the jump:

Philadelphia Eagles to Celebrate Fans and the NFL’s 100th Season with “Eagles Fantennial Weekend”

Eagles Fantennial Weekend presented by Ticketmaster to include fan festival at Cherry Street Pier on Sept. 21

The Philadelphia Eagles will celebrate their fans and commemorate the National Football League’s 100th season with a series of special events, initiatives, innovative programming, and prizes during Week 3 of the 2019 NFL season. Presented by Ticketmaster, the Eagles’ Official Ticketing Partner, Eagles Fantennial will bring together fans to showcase their love of football through a number of exciting promotions, including a celebratory weekend of football, fun, and family at Cherry Street Pier on Saturday, Sept. 21.

“The Fantennial Weekend is an opportunity for us to celebrate and thank our fans for their passion and support,” said Don Smolenski, Philadelphia Eagles President. “The Eagles have always had a special connection with the fans of the Delaware Valley. They are our source of inspiration every year, and in this 100th NFL season, it is a great opportunity to celebrate a century of football with them and to look ahead toward the next 100 years.”

The Eagles Fantennial Weekend festivities will kick off during Week 3 of the NFL season when the Eagles host the Detroit Lions – one of the league’s original franchises – on Sunday, Sept. 22 at Lincoln Financial Field. The weekend festivities will start with Garnet Valley High School hosting Radnor High School on Friday, Sept. 20 for a primetime high school football matchup with elements of Eagles Fantennial incorporated into the gameday experience.

On Saturday, Sept. 21, fans are invited to attend Eagles Fantennial Festival at Cherry Street Pier from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm. The evening will include special appearances by Eagles Legends, Eagles Cheerleaders, the Eagles Pep Band and Drumline, SWOOP, a life-sized Brian Dawkins bobblehead, and much more. Ticketing information for Eagles Fantennial Festival will be shared at a later time.

In addition to the activities happening at Cherry Street Pier for Eagles Fantennial Weekend, the Eagles will also include a number of other special prizes and promotions that will be offered to fans throughout the season:
