Officially announced today, The Steelers and Cowboys, two of the league’s most legendary franchises, will face off in this year’s preseason Hall of Fame game at Tom Benson HOF Stadium in Canton Ohio, August 06, 2020 at 8:00 PM.

Tickets will go on sale starting Friday at 10 AM.

This will be each team’s seventh appearance in the Hall of Fame game, tied for the most of any franchise. Both teams also hold a 3-3 record in the glorified preseason game.

The last time the Steelers participated in the Hall of Fame game was 2015, the year running back Jerome Bettis was enshrined.

It comes as no surprise that the Steelers and Cowboys were selected for the Hall of Fame game considering the iconic figures they will each have inducted this year.

The Steelers will have head coach Bill Cowher and safety Troy Polamalu enshrined as a part of the Centennial Class of 2020, while the Cowboys will send former head coach Jimmie Johnson to Canton. Former Steelers safety Donnie Shell will also be inducted later as a part of the Hall of Fame Centennial Celebration in September.

Steelers and Cowboys is one of the NFL’s most storied rivalries. The franchises have met in three Super Bowls, with Pittsburgh taking the series edge 2-1.
