HAMILTON, ON--(Marketwired - October 22, 2014) -  StubHub and the Canadian Football Hall of Fame (CFHOF) have teamed up to present the second annual Hall of Fame Weekend at the 2014 Grey Cup in Vancouver. The Hall of Fame Weekend features a full schedule of events dedicated to celebrating the best players and builders in Canadian football. The event happens from Friday, November 28th to Monday, December 1st 2014 and aims to excite and connect fans with CFL legends.

"We are excited to partner with StubHub to help share Canada's biggest football celebration with even more Canadian football fans," said Mark DeNobile, Executive Director of the Canadian Football Hall of Fame. "StubHub is connecting fans with their passion for the game by offering CFHOF packages that include tickets to the Hall of Fame Party, Tailgate Party and tons of VIP experiences in between."

As part of the agreement, StubHub and the CFHOF will share the Will Call room at the Hyatt Regency in Vancouver. As fans pick up their packages under the StubHub Ticket Oak, they will have the opportunity to meet with Hall of Famers on-site. Artifacts and memorabilia will be brought from the CFHOF Museum for fans to explore.

To kick off the festivities, attendees can watch live among current Hall of Famers as the Induction Class of 2015 is announced. This takes place at the Hall of Fame Party on the Friday night, but that's just the beginning.

"StubHub always strives to bring the best possible experiences to fans, so we're proud to partner with the Canadian Football Hall of Fame and be a part of living history," said Anthony Lipschitz, Country Manager, StubHub Canada. "From our will call presence to our position as the official sponsor of the Tailgate Party, we're thrilled to introduce StubHub's world-class service to Canadian football's passionate fan base."

Attendees can choose between packages that include three night's accommodations at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver, pre-game festivities at the hotel, and Hall of Fame merchandise. Hall of Fame Weekend package holders will also have access to Friday's Hall of Fame Party and Sunday's Tailgate Party. An enhanced package that includes game tickets is also available.
