In celebration of Super Bowl XLVIII, the first Super Bowl played in the New York/New Jersey region, the NFL, Bloomingdale’s and The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) teamed up to support the NFL Foundation by auctioning 48 unique Super Bowl XLVIII helmets on NFL Auction. Fans may bid on the helmets at http://www.nfl.com/superbowlhelmets through February 4.

All net proceeds from the auction of the helmets will be donated to the NFL Foundation. The foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of those touched by the game of football. Through its grant programs the NFL Foundation supports youth and high school football programs, health and safety efforts such as Heads Up Football, and community health initiatives, including NFL PLAY 60.
