Wave of excitement builds ahead of Pro Football Hall of Fame Game, events

PITTSBURGH — In a little more than 48 hours, the Steelers will kick off the 2021 preseason against the Dallas Cowboys in Canton, Ohio at the annual Hall of Fame Game.

After that, a new group of Steelers will join the all-time greats in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

There are tons of events for fans to take in, and it’s something team president Art Rooney II is excited for.

“It’s great anytime one of our guys goes in but five going in one year is unusual and special. Each one of these guys is someone, you know, I have a lot of great respect for. I worked closely with Bill Nunn and Bill Cowher and it’s going to be a very special weekend,” Rooney said.

The Hall of Fame Game is set to kick off at 8 p.m. on FOX.
