State Grant To Improve Stadium At Pro Football HOF

Mar 19, 2014

The state of Ohio will give a $10 million grant to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton to reconstruct Fawcett Stadium, the field where the annual enshrinement and Hall of Fame game take place. 

The project is designed to preserve the iconic and historic elements of the 1938 structure.  It will include new infrastructure and additional seating; new technology systems for sound and video screens; improved parking and stadium access; new concession areas and restrooms; and a new plaza adjoining the stadium and the Hall of Fame.  The project will be completed in two phases, starting this year and wrapping up in 20-16. This year's enshrinement takes place August 2.
