The Premier League Hall of Fame will recognise and celebrate the exceptional skill and talent of players who have graced the competition since its inception in 1992. 

Entry to the Hall of Fame will be the highest individual honour awarded to players by the League.

The Hall of Fame’s original launch date was postponed last year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

It will be launched tomorrow and will reveal two inaugural inductees, who will star in a special television programme.

Global broadcast

This will be broadcast on Monday at 18:00 BST on Sky Sports Premier League in the UK, on the Premier League's digital channels and around the world via the League’s international broadcast partners.

An additional shortlist of nominees will be announced during the programme, with fans invited to vote and help select a further six former players to join the Premier League Hall of Fame.

Who can enter the Hall of Fame?

To be eligible for the Premier League Hall of Fame this year, players must have been retired as of 1 August 2020, and only a player’s Premier League career is considered in his candidacy.

Each inductee will receive a personalised medallion, engraved with the year of their induction.

The Premier League Hall of Fame will live online, with a dedicated content hub on the Premier League website and app.
