The president of the Pro Football Hall of Fame says he’d like to have a regular-season NFL game at the hall’s stadium in Canton, OH to mark the league’s 100th birthday.

According to The Repository, The Associated Press, and wgem.com, they reported that hall president David Baker, recently talked with NFL officials about scheduling a game in Canton on Thursday, September 17, 2020, exactly 100 years after the league was founded in the city.

Baker says he thinks the proposal will get legitimate consideration.

He says his ideal scenario would be a game between the Chicago Bears and the Arizona Cardinals.

They are the only two current teams who, under different names, were part of the NFL at the start.

Baker says that match-up would require special accommodation because those teams aren’t scheduled to meet in 2020.
