The Chick-fil-A College Football Hall of Fame Unveils “College Football 150” in the Specialty Exhibit Delivered by UPS this Summer
In Advance of the 150th Birthday of College Football, the New Celebratory Exhibit Features Artifacts and Memorabilia Dating Back to 1873
The Chick-fil-A College Football Hall of Fame, in partnership with the National Football Foundation, announces a limited-time, special exhibit to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the game. The display gives fans a look into the history and evolution of the game through the decades.
The College Football 150 display in the Specialty Exhibit delivered by UPS features unique content from the early days of college football and showcases some of the game’s oldest artifacts dating all the way back to 1873. The collection includes special items like a rule book published in 1906, a box of dirt from the site of the first game ever played, a medallion and program from the Centennial 1969 celebration, and an umpire card used in the 1960s. Fans can view a detailed timeline of the progression of the game brought to life with a collection of jerseys, helmets, and other memorabilia.
“We’re excited to celebrate the past 150 years and grateful to be a part of that history,” said Dennis Adamovich, CEO of the Chick-fil-A College Football Hall of Fame. “Our new must-see exhibit pays tribute to the players and coaches who made the game what it is today and celebrates the passion, pageantry and traditions of the game. If you call yourself a college football fan, you need to make a special visit to see the exhibit in person during college football’s biggest season yet.”
