ATLANTA – As 13 of the greatest names are inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame, PRIMESPORT and the National Football Foundation (NFF) are pleased to partner once again on such an illustrious evening.

Extending the relationship for fans to celebrate the accomplishments of college football icons, PRIMESPORT is excited to further its Official Travel and Hospitality offerings for the 60th NFF Annual Awards Dinner on Dec. 5, 2017 at the New York Hilton Midtown.

Campbell Trophy® presented by Fidelity Investments, annual scholarships of more than $1.3 million and a series of initiatives to honor the legends of the past and inspire the leaders of the future.

“Through the years, PRIMESPORT has provided exceptional hospitality and travel options for guests recognizing the best in the sport,” said NFF President & CEO Steve Hatchell. “We’re excited to partner with them again to ensure that fans can experience the recognition of our game’s greatest contributors."

PRIMESPORT partners with more than 50 professional teams, college programs and bowl games.  Fans and corporate groups can create the ultimate sporting experience through premium VIP hospitality, travel packages and a secure marketplace to buy and sell tickets.

The NFF will officially induct the 2017 College Football Hall of Fame class on Dec. 5 at the New York Hilton Midtown. Thirteen former players and coaches will be enshrined, including Marshall Faulk, Peyton Manning and Steve Spurrier.
