“The health and safety of our Hall of Famers, fans and volunteers who make Enshrinement Week so special remains our top priority,” said David Baker, president and CEO of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. “The Hall will honor the Centennial Class of 2020 next August, along with what promises to be an equally spectacular Class of 2021, as part of a multi-day celebration of football with an atmosphere that will deliver for fans ‘Twice the Fun in ’21.’”

Fans who retain their tickets for the Enshrinement of the Centennial Class of 2020 can hold those seats, and they will also have access to the presale for the Enshrinement honoring the Class of 2021, which will be held separate from the Class of 2020.
