Tickets are now on sale for the grand opening, and the Hall will host a tailgate including Hall of Famers, university drum lines and mascots, kids activities and giveaways.
The facility also will feature historic and contemporary artifacts, interactive multimedia displays, children’s activities, a theater featuring an originally produced 4K ultra-high-definition film on the history and excitement of college football, meeting facilities and special event spaces.
“Not only did we want our turf to be authentic so guests would get the true look and feel of a college football field, we had to choose a product that would stand up to thousands of our guests using it on a daily basis,” says Brad Olecki, vice president of business development and sales for the College Football Hall of Fame.
