CANTON, Ohio (AP) - A Milwaukee-based technology company has obtained the naming rights for a large development project around the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton.

An agreement calls for the project touted as a “smart city sports and entertainment complex” called the Johnson Controls Hall of Fame Village. Plans call for a $120 million virtual reality attraction to open in 2019.

A yearly celebration will be called the Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Week Powered by Johnson Controls.

The value of the deal with Johnson Controls wasn’t released.

Hall of Fame officials say the project will have an economic impact of more than $15 billion over 25 years.
