Much-like many other sports and leagues have done for their best competitors, the English Premier League will create a Hall Of Fame to recognize its most accomplished participants.
The competition will award players that have performed spectacularly since the competitions inception in 1992.
On the 19th of March the names of the first two inductees into the Hall Of Fame will announced, as per a statement from the Premier League.
The Premier League plans to provide its fans with a shortlist of candidates and let them decide who they believe should be inducted to the Hall Of Fame in addition to the first two inductees.
For a player to be considered for what is going to be the highest honour that they can achieve in the League, the Premier League has stated that the player should be retired and solely their career in the English Top Flight will be considered.
Richard Masters, the Premier League chief executive, said, “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.”
Unfortunately, entry into the Hall Of Fame is currently open to only football players and coaches will not be considered.
