Tickets still available for Hall of Fame game, Reed enshrinement ceremony

ADVERTISEMENT

Tickets still are available for the enshrinement ceremony in which Buffalo Bills great Andre Reed will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

The event is 7 p.m. Aug. 2 at Fawcett Stadium, which is located next to the hall of fame in Canton, Ohio.

Tickets also still are available for the exhibition game between the Bills and New York Giants at 8 p.m. Sunday at Fawcett Stadium. The stadium seats 22,364.

Tickets to the enshrinement range from $20 to $65. Tickets to the game range from $54 to $74. They're available at the hall's website, www.profootballhof.com. Ticket packages are available that include admission to tailgate parties featuring Hall of Famers and other events.

The Hall of Fame museum is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday through Sunday on enshrinement weekend.

The Bills are partly responsible for the fact the enshrinement ceremony is held in the stadium. It used to be held on the steps of the museum, with the crowd fanning out on temporary bleachers around the front lawn of the shrine. When Jim Kelly was inducted in 2002, the hall anticipated a huge crowd of Bills fans and moved the ceremony into the stadium, which was filled to capacity for that event. Ever since, the event has been held in the stadium.

The Hall of Fame is 226 miles from Ralph Wilson Stadium, a 3.5-hour drive.
