The NFL might have added a new holiday to the American calendar.
This year, the United States has 11 federal holidays including Memorial Day, Independence Day, Juneteenth, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.
But the league is making a pitch to add another holiday for football fans: schedule release day.

Finally, the full schedule for all 32 teams will be revealed.
In the days prior to the 12th, broadcast networks and the teams have revealed some of the games in their calendar.
The teams participating in the International Series have also been revealed, including the teams that will play in the first-ever regular season game in Germany.
Let The Schedule Talks Begin
However, the full reveal won’t happen until today and fans will have limitless conversations once the schedule is out.
Die-hard supporters will assess their team’s strengths and predict their record based on their opponents.
The schedule will also initiate several conversations in sports bars.
Even without the order of games, it’s easy to predict who a specific team will face.
There will be four intra-conference games between the AFC East and the AFC North.
Meanwhile, the AFC West and AFC South will have the same number of games.
The same pairings too with the NFC.
The AFC East will also compete with the NFC North, while the AFC North face teams from the NFC South.
The AFC South draws the NFC East, while the AFC West contends with the NFC West.
Those pairings should give fans an idea on which teams their team will face.
However, the sequence of games isn’t made public yet, and it’s vital in determining logistical needs and the team’s morale.
But once the schedule is in place, everyone invested in the sport hopes that their team will enter the playoffs.
