FANS INVITED TO CAPTURE MOMENT


Fans on the Hall of Fame campus to celebrate the 2014 Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival will experience a special treat on Friday morning when more the 100 “Gold Jackets” (returning Hall of Famers) pose for a group photo in front of the Hall’s main entrance. The photo will be taken at approximately 9:15 a.m. on Friday, August 1.

The who’s who of football’s greatest will arrive for a grand “Red Carpet” walk to the front steps of the Hall of Fame. The Gold Jackets will be assembled on the steps for this historic group photo. The public is welcomed and encouraged to attend and capture the spectacular moment at no charge.

Seats are still available for the Enshrinement of the Class of 2014 (Derrick Brooks, Ray Guy, Claude Humphrey, Walter Jones, Andre Reed, Michael Strahan, and Aeneas Williams) on Saturday, Aug. 2 and the NFL/Hall of Fame Game (New York Giants vs. Buffalo Bills) on Sunday, Aug. 3. Tickets>>>
The most recent count of Gold Jackets who will be in attendance for the Hall of Fame Weekend has reached 102. Add to that the seven newest members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 2014 – Derrick Brooks, Ray Guy, Claude Humphrey, Walter Jones, Andre Reed, Michael Strahan, and Aeneas Williams and the count rises to a remarkable 109 Hall of Famers attending the festivities. That number represents the most ever for a Hall of Fame Weekend other than reunion years.

“This is a wonderfully spectacular tradition, one of the greatest in all of sports,” Hall of Fame President David Baker stated. “Nowhere can fans see so many of the greatest Heroes of the Game in one place at one time. There’s no better way to kick off the NFL’s 95th season.”
