Dayton was home to the NFL’s first game between the Dayton Triangles and Columbus Panhandles in October 1920.
The NFL Foundation announced in March plans to build a new turf field at the park to recognize the city’s contribution to football.

The city put a hold on the groundbreaking of the new field after News Center 7 and the Dayton Daily News reporting uncovered the potential the planned site could be an American Indian burial ground.
The city and the NFL are continuing to collaborate and consider alternative ways to recognize and celebrate Dayton’s role as part of the football league’s 100th season, which will include an NFL donation of a new turf field at another location, the city said.
The National Football League is celebrating the nearly 100-year history of the sport and hosted NFL Draft events in Dayton.
