The Pro Football Hall of Fame announced Thursday that the Arizona Cardinals will face the Dallas Cowboys in next season’s Hall of Fame Game.
The game will take place Aug. 3 at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton, Ohio, two days before the class of 2017 is inducted.
Arizona is appearing in the game for the fifth time, with the franchise playing the New York Giants to a 21-21 tie in the first Hall of Fame Game in 1962. The Cardinals’ most recent appearance in the game was in 2012 against the New Orleans Saints.
Dallas is appearing in the game for the sixth time. The Cowboys last played in the game in 2010 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Both teams have a representative in the seven-member class with former Arizona quarterback Kurt Warner and Dallas owner Jerry Jones going into the Hall of Fame.
Last year’s Hall of Fame Game between the Green Bay Packers and Indianapolis Colts was cancelled shortly before kickoff due to poor field conditions.
