AUDIO Baker: Tom Benson HOF Stadium "Game Changer"

Written by

The curtain has been lifted on the 2017 NFL campaign and for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, a sparkling new stadium was dedicated to kick off the season.

Pro Football Hall of Fame President and CEO David Baker said Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium is truly a "game changer" not only for the Hall, but for the city of Canton.

"This is the finest small-venue NFLstadium in the world," Baker said. 

 The locker rooms each hold 105 people and the Club area holds 1,000 people. The press box is a new feature as well with great view lines of the playing field.

The 23,000 seat facility was dedicated Thursday morning and featured a statue of Saints owner Tom Benson, who contributed $11 million to the stadium project that now bears his name.

Baker was extremely appreciative of Benson's contribution to keeping football thriving in the Hall of Fame City.

"He felt that this was where the game of professional football began, and he thinks it should live forever in Canton," Baker explained.

Hall of Fame President David Baker said they are actively preparing for the NFL's 100th anniversary by building various amenites for the Johnson Controls Hall of Fame Village.

 The venue will host not only football at the high school, collegiate and pro level, but concerts, and other entertainment options for as Baker puts it, " the next 100 years.
