Premier League has announced its plans on Thursday regarding the launch of the Hall of Fame.
The Hall of Fame will be introduced next month which will recognise the legends of the Premier League. They confirmed that two players will be the first inductees in the Hall of Fame.
Coming soon…. #PLHallOfFame— Premier League (@premierleague) February 27, 2020
Premier League released a statement on their official website: “Membership of the Premier League Hall of Fame will be the highest individual honour awarded to players by the League. The first two inductees to have their careers commemorated in the Premier League Hall of Fame will be revealed on Thursday 19 March.”
“The Hall of Fame will recognise and celebrate the exceptional skill and talent of players who have graced the competition since its inception in 1992”
Premier League chief executive Richard Masters said: “Since 1992, the Premier League has been home to world-class players who have defined generations and provided us with compelling football season after season.”
“A place in the Premier League Hall of Fame is reserved for the very best. It will be an occasion for our fans around the world to look back over the years and help us celebrate some truly exceptional playing careers.”
A shortlist will be released shortly which will allow the fans to vote for their favourite legends and include them in the Hall of Fame. The retired players who have played in the Premier League are only eligible.
The players will only be considered based on their Premier League careers. The accolades which they have won abroad or in the continental competitions and also in the old First Division won’t be taken into account for selecting a player for the Hall of Fame.
