The Goodyear name is famous in the United States and around the world for more than just tires and for some obscure reasons that you not be aware of. From the first modern soccer ball, the first canvas and rubber sports shoes and the Macy's Day Parade floats, Goodyear has has been a big part of the American sports and entertainment landscape. We are proud to showcase sporting and other events in this historic facility and hope you enjoy the following information, photos and fun facts.

The Goodyear Hall was built by the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company for it's employees back in 1920. The gymnasium was not only used by the employees but hosted numerous events for their families, Christmas celebrations, the AAU basketball games for the Goodyear Winged Foots and staging for the original Macy's Day Parade floats that were manufactured by the Goodyear Rubber Company.
