Phase One of the Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium is ready to be unveiled for the 2016 Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Week celebration held August 4-7, in Canton, Ohio.
Over three days, the venue will be transformed from a sold-out “Concert for Legends” featuring Tim McGraw (August 5) to the stage for the Enshrinement Ceremony for the Class of 2016 – Edward J. DeBartolo, Jr., Tony Dungy, Brett Favre, Kevin Greene, Marvin Harrison, Orlando Pace, Ken Stabler and Dick Stanfel (August 6) to the field for the 2016 NFL/Hall of Fame Game between the Green Bay Packers and the Indianapolis Colts to kick off the NFL’s preseason (August 7).

How can all of this take place in just 72 hours? It’s due to the first-time design strategy incorporated into the stadium by the HKS Sports & Entertainment Group in conjunction and their clients, Industrial Realty Group, LLC and the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Below are key design aspects changing the way the 2016 Hall of Fame Enshrinement Weekend will take place:
Great care also was taken in designing a new stadium that maintained the history and tradition of the original 1938 stadium, respecting history while infusing the latest in stadium design.
Upon completion of the 2016 Enshrinement Weekend, demolition will begin on the rest of the existing stadium. The new, fully completed venue will open to the public during the 2017 Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement. The next phase will include premium environments with suites, clubs and club seats; the latest in technology integration; roof terraces; fan concourses and amenities; and NFL standards throughout.
