Click HERE for the Full List

Each year since 1987, the Greater Syracuse Sports Hall of Fame (GSSHOF) has received new nominations to add to its master list, which now contains over 400 nominees. To see the newest (submitted by Nov. 30, 2018) additions to this list, click here.


Every April the election process begins for that year.  A preliminary screening is conducted of all names on the nominee list. At our full Board meeting, known as “Champions Night,” Board members are urged to review the entire master list of nominees, and campaign on behalf of any individual(s) they feel merit election.  The Board member is required to take into account advocacy and sentiments from the community, whether in the form of written letters or emails to Board members, posts on social media sites promoted by the GSSHOF organization, personal contacts, etc. Therefore, we encourage you to advocate for your favorites through this website or on our social media sites.
