NFL Hall of Fame Weekend Schedule
One of the most exciting weekends of the year for football fans, the NFL Hall of Fame Weekend not only marks the beginning of the NFL Preseason (which means another NFL season is right around the corner), but also is a celebration of some of the best players ever to hit the gridiron as they are inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame. Each year football fans from all over the United States find their way to Canton to either see their team play in the opening game or to see one of their all-time favorite players receive the highest individual honor in professional football by having their bust added to the Hall of Fame. This is the place to be every summer for die hard football fans and the festive atmosphere brimming with camaraderie is unlike that of any other NFL event.
This year the NFL Hall of Fame Weekend will be held from Saturday, August 8th through Sunday, August 9th in Canton, Ohio. On Saturday the induction ceremony will take place at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium withe the ceremonies beginning at 8:00 PM local time. This is your opportunity to see some of the best NFL players of all time be honored for all they have done for the sport and the teams for which they played. The following night the 2015 Hall of Fame Game will be played with kickoff scheduled for 8:00 PM. This year the game will be played between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Minnesota Vikings. These are two of the most dynamic teams in the NFL and should be able to put on quite a show for the first preseason game of the year which will also be nationally televised. Fans have the option of attending one night of the festivities or both nights and whatever choice you make you are sure to have an unforgettable time at the NFL Hall of Fame Weekend. Be sure to get your tickets from StubHub as soon as possible because this event always sells out quickly.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are one of the most successful franchises in NFL history and also have some of the most loyal fans who travel far and wide to show the Steelers their support. Football fans in Pittsburgh have been cheering for a winning team for years and it appears as though the Steelers are once again getting back into contention not only in their division but in the AFC as a whole thanks to contributions from superstars like Ben Roethlisberger and Le'Veon Bell. The Steelers are looking to pile up big wins to get back to the top of the heap in the loaded AFC North and will want to start the preseason off with a big win. The Minnesota Vikings on the other hand should be back on track in 2015 after the return of superstar running back Adrian Peterson who can take over games seemingly at will. Wide receiver Greg Jennings has long been regarded as one of the most talented in the league providing Teddy Bridgewater with an incredible target downfield that should provide even more highlight reel plays next season. The Vikings play in an equally competitive division, the NFC North, and will also want to get the preseason started off on the right foot.
If you are expecting to see an amazing sporting event, look no further as there is nothing that matches the thrill of being there for an exciting NFL match up loaded with heart-pounding intensity. Whether it is a spectacular catch, a highlight-ready run, or an eye-popping throw, the NFL has you covered if you are looking for top-tier football action that you'll be talking about well after it's over. There has never been a better time to head out to the stands so you can actually feel the intensity of the crowd in a way that you never can from your living room. Tickets to see the Hall of Fame Game and the rest of the NFL Hall of Fame Weekend at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium are always hot sellers for a reason, as the weekend is one of the most popular of the year and attracts fans from all over the country whether they are looking to see their favorite team in action or to be there to show appreciation for one of their all time favorite players who is now being enshrined in Canton. This weekend is much more than just a preseason game and a Hall of Fame induction ceremony, it is a celebration of everything that makes NFL football so special and such a vital part of American sports culture.
Last year's Hall of Fame Weekend was yet another incredible one, as part of the weekend was dedicated to seven new members of the NFL Hall of Fame. Andre Reed, Walter Jones, Derrick Brooks, Claude Humphrey, Ray Guy, Aeneas Williams, and Michael Strahan were the legendary athletes whose busts were added to the hall as the 2014 NFL Hall of Fame class, representing an unbelievable mix of incredible players on both sides of the ball. This time around, it will be Charles Haley, Junior Seau, Tim Brown, Mick Tingelhoff, Will Shields, Ron Wolf, Jerome Bettis, and Bill Polian who will be added to the hall, which is another legendary group of players that will have fans showing up from all over to pay their respects. The game is, of course, the final event of the weekend where two of the NFL's most popular teams meet on the gridiron to show everyone in attendance exactly why it is that football has captured the hearts and imaginations of people all across the United States. Televisions across the country will be tuned to this game to catch a first glimpse of what the upcoming NFL season may have in store.
The Hall of Fame Game was first played in 1971 and usually features an AFC team going up against an NFC team.
