The Sports Wall of Fame's objective is to honour and perpetuate the names and deeds of those individuals whose athletic abilities have brought fame to themselves and their community and of those individuals whose interest in and work for sport has resulted in a climate which benefited athletes and athletics. There are three categories: Athlete, Team and Builder.
The Sports Wall of Fame Sponsor Award is presented to a corporation or group in recognition of a minimum of five years significant contribution to sports in the City of Niagara Falls. For further information about the Sports Wall of Fame please contact Recreation and Culture at 905-356-7521 ext. 3332 or by email. You can also visit the Virtual Sports Wall of Fame.
