The Hall


The Elgin Sports Hall of Fame has inducted 209 members since 1980. All of the Inductees are celebrated for their outstanding achievements and accomplishments. As the highest honor in Elgin athletics, entrance into the Hall of Fame recognizes outstanding contributions to a variety of sports.


All candidates are nominated by the public and all have met the criteria to become a candidate on the ballot for induction into the ESHOF. Currently we have 31 highly talented and decorated athletes on the ballot awaiting your vote into the Hall of Fame.


Support our area college student-athletes and help us recognize individuals and teams who have contributed to the success of Elgin’s great sports history.

Experience it in person!

If you’d like to view previous Award Recipients we invite you to the ESHOF on-site Touch Pro Experience, located at The Centre of Elgin.
