About

The Scottish Sports Hall of Fame was established in 2002 to recognise and honour the many great champions this country has produced.

Led by sportscotland, the Scottish Sports Hall of Fame celebrates and pays tribute to Scotland’s iconic sports men and women from the past 100 years, and inspires future generations.

An independent selection panel, consisting of experts from across the sporting spectrum, considers every nomination which is received to decide which sporting heroes are inducted to the Hall of Fame.

There is a collection of historic sporting memorabilia to represent the Scottish Sports Hall of Fame, which is currently housed at the National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh. Key items on display are Old Tom Morris’s golf club, the swimmer Ian Black’s BBC Sports Personality of the Year trophy and poolside dressing gown made from tartan towels, and Billy Bremner’s International Cap.

Why not have a look through the inductees and read more about their life and talents or maybe you have someone in mind for a nomination? If so, you can nominate here.

If you have been inspired to get involved in sport, whether it is to play, coach or volunteer, then visit the sportscotland website to find out how you can take part.
