ABOUT THE IVY FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION
The Ivy Football Association was founded in 2000 to honor and celebrate Ivy League football and its rich tradition of producing many, many graduates who have become leaders in their chosen fields or professions, including government, law, medicine, business, the arts, education, and religion. We applaud how football fits into the overall educational process and college experience, as well as how the game is played in the Ivy League. Ivy League football, we believe, can be lifted up as the model for how intercollegiate football should be conducted.
In recent years, the IFA has worked to support football within the Ivy League by communicating with athletic directors and relevant administrators about issues of concern, and working to build relationships among Ivy League members and various media outlets. Past initiatives have included the funding of a documentary on the history of football in our league, narrated by Columbia's Brian Dennehy and featuring many of our prominent graduates and past greats. This movie, 8: Ivy League Football and America, has been widely shown on various television outlets, including NESN, and a number of PBS affiliates. More recently, we have collaborated with the Council of Ivy Group Presidents and its Executive Director, Robin Harris, to produce a public service announcement about football in the Ivy League. It will be shown during the nationally televised Ivy Games of the Week on the NBC Sports and CBS Sports Networks. Also, we have begun a relationship with the Sports Legacy Institute and the Boston University Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy, to advance the Ivy Presidents' reforms, announced in 2011, seeking to reduce the incidence and severity of brain trauma associated with football.
