Meet and learn more about the famous NFL fans from all 32 teams that were recipients of the Visa Hall of Fans Award from 1998-2004 through Pro Football’s Most Passionate Fans!
In 1998, Visa sponsored a national contest to find the wildest, most loyal, and most intriguing fans for each team in the league. The award was entitled, “The Visa Hall of Fans” Award as fans were chosen from each team based on their submitted essays and photos. Contestants had to explain why they should represent their respective team in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. At the time, a special wing in the Hall was created to honor these diehard fans.
Visa awarded plaques to the winners — originally at the Hall, and later in front of the hometown fans at each team’s stadium. The Hall of Fame displayed the plaques for a year until the new class of fans was selected and their plaques were displayed. At that point, the prior year’s winners had their names placed on a permanent wall plaque in the “Hall of Fans” wing of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
This book profiles and showcases many of those fans who were honored by Visa at the Pro Football Hall of Fame. As you read through the book, you will undoubtedly recognize many of these famous fans. But for those fans who are not so easily recognized as some, this book’s aim is to illustrate that all of the fans who were honored by Visa possess as much passion, loyalty and enthusiasm as the next.
