“Hawaii Tourism is pleased to support the Polynesian Football Hall of Fame and Polynesian Bowl as an important part of our sports marketing. Sports bring welcome exposure for the Hawaiian Islands, expand our roster of visitor experiences, and showcase the caliber of athletic talent in Hawaii and this region,” said Chris Tatum, president and CEO of the Hawaii Tourism Authority. “Many of the honorees have strong ties to Hawaii so it provides a wonderful opportunity for our local community and youth to be involved in a major way.”
“The HLTA is assisting the Hawaii Tourism Authority by creating opportunities for the recipients of sports tourism funding to engage with our young people and inspire them to aspire to great things in their lives,” said Mufi Hannemann, president and CEO of the Hawaii Lodging & Tourism Association. “We’re following the model we employed with the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Clippers, where the teams participated in clinics and other outreach programs to encourage young people to study hard and participate in sports and other activities.”
“We’re grateful to Kevin Kaplan of the Polynesian Football Hall of Fame and Principals Jon Henry Lee of Campbell and Jamie DelaCruz of Kaimuki and Campbell High Schools for their involvement in making this first-ever event possible,” Hannemann added.
The Polynesian Football Hall of Fame honors Polynesia’s greatest players, coaches, and contributors to the game. It was established in 2013 and is permanently located at the Polynesian Cultural Center. It was established by Super Bowl champions Jesse Sapolu and Ma’a Tanuvasa. Honorees are enshrined during the annual Polynesian Football Hall of Fame Week. The Polynesian Bowl is televised live on the CBS Sports Network.
