What you need to know

  • Microsoft and the NFL have released custom background images for all 32 NFL teams.
  • Most of the images are of NFL stadiums from each team, though a few feature stylized logos.
  • The desktop and mobile versions of Teams support custom backgrounds right now, and support is coming to Teams for the web in the future.

Microsoft has custom backgrounds available for each NFL team, just in time for the 2021 season. You can use the images to make it look as if you're in your favorite NFL stadium in any Microsoft Teams call or meeting. You can also download a generic NFL logo, which is good for those on official news calls or that haven't picked a favorite team yet.

Microsoft Teams support custom backgrounds on its desktop and mobile versions. While it hasn't arrived yet, custom background support is also on the way for Teams on the web.

Once you've downloaded the image you want, you can set it as your background for Microsoft Teams calls and meetings. If you need any help setting that up, we have a complete guide on how to use custom backgrounds on Microsoft Teams. Note that when you preview your background, it may appear reversed. This shouldn't be an issue for anyone who sees you on the other end of a call or meeting.
