“We are thrilled to look ahead to the next chapter for the Hall of Fame with Chick-fil-A and our other partners behind us,” Adamovich said.
The announcement comes several weeks after another of the Hall of Fame's founding partners, Peach Bowl Inc., extended its sponsorship for 10 years. The Peach Bowl organization contributed an additional $8 million to the Hall of Fame as part of that extension.
The College Football Hall of Fame opened in Atlanta in August 2014, following a decision by the National Football Foundation to move the facility here from South Bend, Ind.
Adamovich said the NFF board is “very supportive” of adding Chick-fil-A as title sponsor.
Archie Manning, the NFF’s chairman, said in a statement: “On behalf of our board, our members around the country and the entire college football community, a big thanks to Chick-fil-A for helping keep the legacy of our sport alive.”
The Hall of Fame building is scheduled to get new signage, reflecting the new name, on May 24.
