Virginia Sports Hall of Fame

MEMBERSHIP

Since its inception in 1966, the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame has carried the torch as the official state Hall of Fame for Virginia. It has served its mission of honoring athletic excellence in the Commonwealth through the induction of 334 deserving athletes, coaches, and contributors from all corners of Virginia. As a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, the Hall of Fame has never achieved any level of success on its own.

Through individual and corporate support, the Hall has been able to carry out its mission while innovating its approach; one that celebrates Virginia’s unique sports history, and engages sports fans in a modern capacity, through unique content, programming and events.

Support through membership, at all levels, enables the Hall of Fame to continue honoring sports legends, while becoming a storyteller of the past, present, and future of Virginia sports. Let’s continue to provide the Commonwealth with a Hall of Fame all Virginian’s can be proud of.
