In a first for Reddit, the NFL announced today that the first-in-the-nation live online Reddit AMA will take place Sept. 22 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., beginning with a Q&A session with a panel of moderators.
The AMA will be moderated by Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian and hosted by Reddit user r/sports.
“We’re looking forward to getting some insight into the life of a professional athlete and what it takes to be a successful athlete on Reddit,” said Commissioner Roger Goodell, in a statement.
“I look forward to answering questions from you about the NFL and what you’ve learned on the field.”
Reddit has become a destination for many of the world’s most popular personalities, including LeBron James, Donald Trump, Justin Bieber, and, most recently, NFL star Aaron Rodgers.
The site also hosts a daily live stream of the NFL’s most notable games, including the Super Bowl and the Superbowl XLIX, in addition to weekly recaps of the league’s best plays.
The NFL has made the AMA a priority as it continues to grow in popularity.
In the past, the league has launched a series of live chats for fans to ask questions to the team captains and executives on the sidelines, but the AMA will offer more direct access to the NFL owners.
