South Australian Sport Hall of Fame and Legends

Induction into the South Australian Sport Hall of Fame represents the highest level of recognition and is there to promote the outstanding achievements of this State's greatest athletes and general members. Nominations can be for athletes, teams and general members who each identify as a South Australian. Athletes and teams must have competed at the top level of their sport and general members will be selected for excellence and outstanding achievements in roles supporting athletes' participation. Nominations are submitted annually and any that are not selected in any given year will be reconsidered by the Selection Committee the following year. Visit the nomination page for further details.
