For those of us who aren’t too interested in the Olympics (what kind of a sport is equestrian dressage, anyway?), and are looking forward to sports that are a bit more…American, the kickoff to NFL season 97 is less than a month away.

Mark your calendars for September 8th at 7:30pm ET. You won’t want to miss the “2016 NFL Kickoff Presented by Hyundai,” an exciting live show featuring musical superstars Dierks Bentley and OneRepublic.

Football Frenzy: Check out Hyundai’s hilarious Super Bowl commercials from last year

The 60-minute NFL pregame spectacular from Civic Center Park in Denver on September 8th is being produced by Ricky Kirshner, who also oversees the Super Bowl pregame and halftime shows, so you know it’s going to be a blast. The performance will also involve a live filming of NBC’s Football Night in America featuring all the commentators you love (or at least tolerate).

Directly following Hyundai’s NFL Kickoff special will be the opening game between the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos. Considering those teams went head-to-head back in February for Super Bowl 50, this is a highly anticipated match–the first Super Bowl rematch as a season kickoff game in 45 years. Both the show and the game will be viewable on a number of digital platforms.

As the major sponsor of the NFL, Hyundai has a lot in store for the night–and for the coming NFL season. Hyundai’s the headlining sponsor of the kickoff festivities, but Bud Light, McDonald’s, Microsoft, Pepsi, Snickers, Verizon, and Visa all have a hand in it.

Make sure you don’t miss out on this great NFL game–and live performances by Dierks Bentley and OneRepublic!

Final Results: How well did Hyundai’s Super Bowl commercials do?
