The College Football Hall of Fame will be making its first official foray in Atlanta next month. During a ceremony late in August, 18 players and six coaches will be added to the Hall.
The enshrinement ceremony on Aug. 28 will be the first time the event is held in Atlanta. A College Football Hall of Fame attraction near Centennial Olympic Park is currently under construction. It is expected to open in the fall of 2014.
The ceremony will be conducted at the Omni Hotel, and will include a dinner and a preview of the next college football season hosted by ESPN analysts.
Ticket sales close Aug. 21.
