The NFL Hall of Fame preseason game is an annual NFL exhibition game that takes place in Canton, Ohio, at the Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium. It is typically played in early August, as the first preseason game of the season.
The game is part of the festivities surrounding the induction of new members into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, which takes place over a weekend in Canton. The Hall of Fame game is typically played between two NFL teams scheduled to play each other during the upcoming regular season. The teams are chosen by the NFL, and they usually feature players competing for roster spots or starting positions.
While the game is officially a preseason exhibition game, it holds a special significance due to its connection to the Hall of Fame induction ceremony. It is also the first NFL game of the season, and it gives fans a chance to see their favorite teams in action after a long offseason.
