The alliance will be supported by marketing that includes  TV, radio, print, digital and outdoor. In addition, the Van Heusen Pro Football Hall of Fame Fan’s Choice tour will visit select NFL stadiums throughout the season, which will include appearances by Hall of Famers and memorabilia from the Hall of Fame’s permanent collection.

Wide receiver Jerry Rice and all-time leading rusher Emmitt Smith lead the official list of 131 players, coaches and contributors who make up the preliminary list of modern-era nominees for election to the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 2010. (Full list here.) Other notables include Herschel Walker, Phil Simms, Randall Cunningham, Richard Dent and Cris Carter. The Class of 2010 will be selected from a list of 17 finalists (15 modern-era and two senior nominees). The actual voting will be conducted at the Pro Football Hall of Fame Selection Committee’s annual meeting, which will be held on Feb. 6, 2010 in South Florida the day before Super Bowl XLIV. The election results will be announced immediately afterward.

The fan's choice for the Hall of Fame Class of 2010 will be revealed live on the NFL Network in Miami, also on Feb. 6, 2010, during Super Bowl XLIV festivities and just prior to the official announcement from the Pro Football Hall of Fame Board of Selectors.
