Falcons, CFHOF Announce Partnership

The Falcons' 2016 roster is constantly evolving and we've amassed all the players in one gallery that will be updated throughout the year

During the Atlanta Falcons' Draft Celebration last week at the College Football Hall of Fame and Chick-fil-A Fan Experience, team owner Arthur Blank announced a $2 million commitment to the attraction on behalf of The Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation.

The funds will go toward the continued development of the new Hall of Fame, as well as to charitable and civic initiatives.

"This tremendous facility recaptures great moments in college football and pays tribute to its players, coaches and fans like no other place in the world," Blank said.

"It's a place that residents, visitors and fans of all ages and school allegiances want to visit. As someone who loves the game, loves the competition and loves the teamwork, camaraderie and other life skills football instills in everyone it touches, it's a place I'm proud to support."

Fans visiting the College Football Hall of Fame will see prominent signage recognizing the partnership in the Quad area of the attraction.

"We're incredibly honored and grateful for the support and unmatched generosity of Arthur, The Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation, and the Atlanta Falcons," College Football Hall of Fame President and CEO John Stephenson said. "We look forward to working together to continue to share the passion and excitement associated with this great sport."

"Arthur Blank understands all that is good about our great sport of football and we are so grateful for his partnership," said National Football Foundation President & CEO Steve Hatchell.
