Basketball Hall Scores $30M+ For Innovations, Renovations, Puts It To Work

NYSJ Sports-Entertainment Business News Service

May 23, 2018:
The destination that is home to Michael Jordan, Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, Walt Frazier and more than 350 other players, coaches, refs and contributors — as well as countless items of basketball history — is getting a 21st Century makeover.

Three years after unveiling  “It’s Time to Step Forward” campaign to generate finances and public support for a major renovation,  the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame said that more than $30 million has been pledged to move the project forward.

This week, the hoops Hall, located in Springfield, Mass., shared the results of Phase 1 in its multi-million-dollar renovation, the first undertaking since the Hall opened in its present location (1000 Hall of Fame Ave.) in 2002.

The original Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame opened in 1959.

The museum’s full renovation is expected to be completed by the end of 2019.

"Today is a very exciting day for the Basketball Hall of Fame as we celebrate a new look to our museum and thank our many generous supporters,” John Doleva, president and CEO for the Basketball Hall of Fame, said during a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Wednesday.

“We continually strive to be the finest sports museum in the world, celebrating today’s greats and the legends who paved the way. The updates we’ve been able to make to our venue will help us to continue our mission and offer a tremendous experience for the fans of the game we love.”

The Hall said that the $30 million-plus has been pledged from “members of the national basketball community, as well as individual donors and Connecticut and Massachusetts-based organizations.”

Renovations and additions revealed included the Tip-Off Pavilion Lobby Presented by Mohegan Sun, a surround-sound Nike Theater and a donor recognition wall featuring an interactive kiosk.

Phase 1 also includes the Coaches Circle exhibit, which pays tribute to hoops founder Dr. James Naismith and will “celebrate current coaches who are following in his footsteps by emphasizing a commitment to positively impacting communities, players, peers, and society as a whole.”

In addition, the new attractions feature a Players Locker Room (pictured), which highlights the lives and careers of 24 Hall of Famers in an interactive exhibit, including Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Jerry West, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Oscar Robertson and Class of 2018 members Grant Hill, Steve Nash and Jason Kidd.

According to the Hall, proposed technological renovations in future phases will “engage the millions of basketball fans who cannot travel to Springfield through digital media access to the museum’s exhibits and inspirational stories.”

The museum’s full renovation is expected to be complete by the end of 2019.
