history of the hall

Founded in 1951, the Wisconsin Athletic Hall of Fame was created to preserve the legacy and rich history of sports and athletic achievements in our state. It’s here to recognize not only our great sports icons but each of you, the people of this state, and your incredible passion for sports. Through the years, the hall has immortalized 137 individuals and their accomplishments. Their legacy is here for all Wisconsinites to celebrate and honor for generations to come.
