Tony Romo’s National Fantasy Football Convention Gives Back to Military and Veteran Families

Veterans and Hall-of-Famer Charles Haley

Most know Tony Romo played 14 seasons with the Dallas Cowboys, guided the Cowboys to four postseason appearances and was named to the Pro Bowl four times, until he retired out in 2016. Some may even know he’s now making a showing in the world of golf, having just won an amateur golf tournament by an impressive nine shots.

What few people know is Tony’s commitment to our military and Veteran families.
Born in San Diego while his dad was serving in the U.S. Navy, Tony grew up around the military environment and learned early on the values and the importance the military plays to the betterment of the United States.

At this year’s Convention, JULY 13 – 15 in Fort Worth, TX, Tony Romo’s National Fantasy Football Convention (NFFC), in partnership with Citi Bank and Soldier On will be surprising two injured veterans with brand new homes and NFFC will be working with Canine Champions for Veterans to provide up to ten other veterans with service dogs.

For those not familiar, the National Fantasy Football Convention is built by fans for the fans. Connecting football fans to the game in the newest and most innovative ways. This year’s convention will provide an unprecedented experience for fans to learn, engage and interact with the brightest stars and minds in the NFL today, with over 200 players, representing every team in the league and including Hall-of-Famers, Heisman Trophy winners and Super Bowl Champions.

NFFC CEO Andy Alberth shared that this year’s event is truly special because it will showcase the appreciation and respect many NFL players have for those who serve our country in uniform. “Many NFL players in the past have stayed well-beyond their designated time slot to spend time around those in uniform who attend. They love this event because they can get around those who serve.”
