CANTON, Ohio (May 25, 2023) – The Sunday, June 4 Memphis Showboats vs. New Jersey Generals game at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium will include two special promotions for young people and autograph seekers of all ages: Kids Day and USFL/Ohio Football Legends Day. Kickoff is at 1 p.m.
Gates open at 11:30 for a free autograph session on the North concourse that will run from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Fans are strongly encouraged to arrive early as the autograph session will end promptly at 12:30 so as not to interfere with game operations. Guest legends will also be recognized on the field at halftime.
Scheduled to appear are:
• Ben Davis
• Eric Metcalf
• Cleo Miller (also USFL)
• Frank Minnifield (also USFL)
• Greg Pruitt

• Felix Wright
Ohio State Buckeyes

College Football Coaches
• Bo Pelini
• Jim Tressel
Fans may bring one item for autographing. Limit one autograph per legend. Autographs are based on availability during the one-hour pre-game window on a first-come, first-served basis. In order to keep the lines moving and allow as many autographs as possible for everyone, no photos with the legends will be permitted.
Kids Day will include giveaways of a Pittsburgh Maulers and New Jersey Generals team photo card (while supplies last) and thunder sticks to kids 12 and under (while supplies last). Kids will also “take over” game operations activities such as anthem singer, PA announcer, emcee/hosts and pregame coin flip.
Individual tickets start at $10 and can be purchased at theusfl.com. Group discounts are available.

The Pittsburgh Maulers and New Jersey Generals share Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium on the campus of the Hall of Fame Village.
