How to Dress for Each Event

Unsure of what the dress code is for each event? Understandable. After all, it is a little unique of a situation to be at a die-hard football fan event that nonetheless, is still a ceremony. Take a look at the dress code for each event.


Enshrinees’ Gold Jacket Ceremony:
Men should wear a suit and tie and women should wear evening attire, but not formal wear.

Enshrinees Gameday Roundtable: Business causal is seen, however, this is a casual event. We highly encourage wearing your favorite team, player of Hall of Famers jersey to sport your spirit.

Class of 2014 Enshrinement Ceremony: Dress code is the same as it is for the Enshrinees Gameday Roundtable. Many guests will be coming straight from that event, so there is no need to change in between.

NFL/Hall of Fame Game: The Buffalo Bills will be taking on the New York Giants so sport a team jersey or t-shirt! Don’t be afraid to go all out to support the team of your choice.
