Event Details

In partnership with the National Football League, we will celebrate the kickoff to the NFL’s 101th season and the 2021 Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Week Powered by Johnson Controls on Wednesday, August 4.

For the 22nd straight year, the national celebration will begin with Play Football “First Play.” This great event will feature thousands of 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 (kids ages 3-16) will receive a t-shirt (while supplies last), free admission to the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Wednesday, August 4, 2021, 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.

Thanks for being a part of this great celebration in our community!
