Why Are Players’ Cleats Different? Exploring the My Cause My Cleats Movement

The NFL makes it a point of emphasis to get involved in a lot of great causes. My Cause My Cleats is another great reminder of the work they do.

The NFL is fast turning into one of the world’s largest global brands. What is already the most popular sport in America is continuously extending its reach to different countries all over the world — spreading the game of football we know and love.

With the reach that the league has, it has taken the position they are in and tried to help others around them. Such is the case with the “My Cause My Cleats” campaign. Let’s take a closer look at the NFL movement, as players around the league will be participating in the movement over the next two weeks of the season.
