The Pro Football Hall of Fame, located in Canton, Ohio, is an exhilarating museum and attraction that pays tribute to the talents and triumphs of pro football’s greatest legends.
The Pro Football Hall of Fame is located in Canton for three primary reasons: (1) the American Professional Football Association, later renamed the National Football League, was founded in Canton on Sept. 17, 1920; (2) the Canton Bulldogs were an early pro football power, even before the days of the NFL, as the first two-time champion of the NFL, in 1922 and 1923. The great Jim Thorpe, the first big-name athlete to play pro football, played his first pro football with the Bulldogs, starting in 1915; and (3) Canton citizens early in the 1960s launched a determined and well-organized campaign to earn the site designation for their city.
Committed to serving its Mission to “Honor the Greatest of the Game, Preserve its History, Promote its Values and Celebrate Excellence Together,” the Hall of Fame is always looking for talented individuals to be a part of the team!
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
The Pro Football Hall of Fame is an equal opportunity employer. Football is a diverse and inclusive sport that is celebrated by people from all walks of life. As an extension of the sport and all it embodies, the Hall celebrates the unique attributes, characteristics and perspectives that make each person valuable and intentionally fosters a diverse and inclusive environment.
The Pro Football Hall of Fame does not discriminate in employment on the basis of race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy and gender identity), national origin, political affiliation, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, genetic information, age, membership in an employee organization, retaliation, parental status, military service or other non-merit factor. The Hall does not tolerate discrimination or harassment based on any of these characteristics.
Diversity, equity and inclusion are more than just a policy at the Hall. It drives our vision and defines who we are as a team.
