"To you it may be football to my family it's about character that makes this country better." – C. David Baker

Before the National Football League (NFL), there was the American Professional Football Association, founded in Canton in 1920. Because of its contribution to the sport, Canton was chosen as the home of the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1963. Since its founding, the NFL has surpassed Major League Baseball (MLB) as the most watched professional sports league, with more than 100 million people tuning into this year’s Super Bowl. Accordingly, the Pro Football Hall of Fame has grown to accommodate this surge in fans around the globe. 

 

Since taking the helm in January 2014, C. David Baker has endeavored to dramatically expand the Hall of Fame’s brand across the world in addition to enhancing its campus in Canton, all while focusing on the organization’s powerful mission statement.

 

Join us for a conversation with C. David Baker about how the Pro Football Hall of Fame plans to continue building on their mission to Honor the Heroes of the Game, Preserve its History, Promote its Values and Celebrate Excellence EVERYWHERE.
