This year, in partnership with the National Football League, we will celebrate the kickoff to the 2018 Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Week Powered by Johnson Controls on Wednesday, Aug. 1 from 10 to 11:30 a.m.

For the 19th straight year, the national celebration has begun with Play Football “First Play.” This great event features 3,500 children who form a human chain and pass a football along a three-mile route from the location in downtown Canton where the NFL was founded to the front steps of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Play Football “First Play” participants will receive a T-shirt (while supplies last), free admission to the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Wednesday, Aug. 1 and lunch on the Hall of Fame grounds. All waivers will be turned in to the assigned committee member at your station on the day of the event.

All registration for this year’s event will be done online below
