About the PEI Sports Hall of Fame and Museum

The Prince Edward Island Sports Hall of Fame and Museum was incorporated in 1968 and is managed by a volunteer board of Directors, and a part-time Executive Director.

Since its inception, the PEI Sports Hall of Fame has inducted more than 200 individuals and teams. Induction to the Hall is a prestigious and sought-after honour, and only the very best are invited to join this select club.

The Hall of Fame induction evening is one of the highlights of the Island sporting year, as friends, family, Provincial leaders and Hall members gather to welcome the new inductees.

In 2018, living Hall members, and those related to members who had passed, were invited to a special 50th anniversary celebration, where they were presented with a special members-only pin to mark the occasion.

The Hall has two primary purposes; to recognize and pay tribute to those who have brought special sporting honor to our province, and to collect and display artifacts, photographs etc, celebrating the province’s rich sporting history.

Currently, the PEI Sports Hall of Fame displays this history at Credit Union Place.

As the continuing story of sport unfolds with the achievements of athletes and those who work on their behalf, the Prince Edward Island Sports Hall of Fame and Museum will be there, ready to record and honour their excellence for future generations.
