Since that first game, the NFL has changed a great deal. Today, there are 32 teams in the league, and the season starts in September and ends in January or February with the Super Bowl. The first game of the season is now typically referred to as the “Opening Game” or “Kickoff Game”, and it is shown on national television.

Plans for the future of the first NFL game

The National Football League (NFL) plans to move the date of its annual championship game, currently held on the last Sunday in January or first Sunday in February, to the second Sunday in February. This would mean that the game would be played one week later than it is now. The change would take effect in 2020, and the game would be held on February 2.

The NFL made the announcement on Tuesday, May 8, 2018, saying that the date change was being made in order to avoid conflicting with the Winter Olympics, which will be held from February 9-25 in South Korea. The league has not yet said where the game will be held.

This is not the first time that the NFL has changed the date of its championship game. In fact, the league has a history of moving the game around to accommodate other events. For example, when Super Bowl XLVII was played in 2013, it was moved from Sunday, February 3 to Monday, February 4 so as not to conflict with a speech by President Barack Obama at a memorial service for former Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.
