Canada Soccer Hall of Fame
|Location||Ottawa, Ontario, Canada|
The Canada Soccer Hall of Fame "captures and preserves the history of Canadian soccer, honouring athletes and builders of the game and serving as a library for editorial, promotional, and educational needs." From 2000 to 2018, the Canada Soccer Hall of Fame has inducted 114 players, 13 managers/coaches, 10 officials, and 40 builders as honoured members. Additionally, the Canada Soccer Hall of Fame has recognized 13 teams of distinction and seven organizations of distinction.
After the Canadian Soccer Association Alumni Association was founded in 1987 and then The Soccer Hall of Fame was founded by the Ontario Soccer Association in 1997 (which was operated in Vaughan, Ontario), the new Canada Soccer Hall of Fame was launched in May 2017 under the direction of the Canadian Soccer Association in Ottawa, Ontario. All previously-inducted members of The Soccer Hall of Fame as well as a catch-up class of 17 legends were named to the new Canada Soccer Hall of Fame.
Honoured members 2000–2018
From 2000 to 2018, the Canada Soccer Hall of Fame has inducted 177 honoured members. The honoured members are organized in four categories: Players, Coaches/Managers, Officials, and Builders. The next class of honoured members will be inducted in 2019.
Names in italics are those persons inducted under the "Pioneer" category (established in 2007) or "Veteran Canadian Players" category (as the category was renamed in 2017). The next group of Veteran Canadian Players will be inducted in 2019.
