Enshrinees' Gold Jacket Ceremony

August 06, 2021 - August 07, 2021

A Little About
Enshrinees' Gold Jacket Ceremony

Nearly 29,000 men have played in at least one National Football league game, but since the Pro Football Hall of Fame was established in 1963, only 318 football players, coaches and/or contributors have been inducted into the Hall of Fame.
Guests at this event will witness members of the Class of 2020/2021 Enshrinees receive their gold jackets, one of three iconic symbols of induction -- the other two being the bronze bust and the ring. The evening begins with a cocktail party with food and beverage stations prior to the crowd offering warm congratulations to the Class of 2020/2021, along with many Gold Jackets who will be in town to celebrate and to welcome the newest members.  It will be a night to remember, the Enshrinees' Gold Jacket Ceremony is a fantastic event!
