In partnership with the National Football League, we celebrated the kickoff to the 2018 Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Week Powered by Johnson Controls on Wednesday, Aug. 1.
For the 19th straight year, the national celebration began with Play Football “First Play.” This great event featured 3,500 children who formed a human chain and passed 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 received a T-shirt (while supplies lasted), free admission to the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Wednesday, Aug. 1 and lunch on the Hall of Fame grounds.
Play Football is a year-round League initiative celebrating youth and high school football. The initiative aims to shape football experiences for flag and tackle participants, highlight coaches and ambassadors who promote values of football participation, and connect the football community through positive messages and experiences.
