GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Green Bay Packers will play the Kansas City Chiefs in the annual Pro Football Hall of Fame Game on Aug. 4 in Canton, Ohio.
The Hall exhibition game starts off the preseason schedule.
''As I understand it, the commissioner (Paul Tagliabue) wanted to have the two teams that played in the first Super Bowl,'' Packers president Bob Harlan said. ''I'm very proud, and it's a nice honor for us. I was surprised when I got the call.''
The Packers beat the Chiefs 35-10 in Super Bowl I on Jan. 15, 1967, in Los Angeles.
Harlan said the league plans to invite the living members of those teams to the Hall of Fame festivities this year.
