Hall of Fame Resort & Entertainment Company, the owner of the multi-use sports, entertainment and media destination centered around the site of the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, announced that its flagship destination resort has rebranded and changed its name to “Hall of Fame Village Powered by Johnson Controls,” effective July 2, 2020. The Hall of Fame Village Powered by Johnson Controls possesses a contemporary vision, mission, and values that adjure the destination to “Honor the Past, Inspire the Future.”
The launch of the new brand reflects the Company’s strategic development of an enhanced platform to support synergy and alignment between the destination and its partners. HOFV is also further aligning its brand with the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s marquee event, the annual “Enshrinement Week Powered by Johnson Controls.”

"The launch of the destination’s new identity will prove a foundation for our progress as we integrate on-site activity with our expansion into exciting new opportunities like fantasy sports to build the sports and entertainment platform of the future. We are confident that we are better representing our shared values and furthering a product that we are all proud of bringing to our customers and fans.”
