Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame and Museum

The Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame and Museum (SSHFM) recognizes exceptional Saskatchewan athletes, championship teams, and sports builders whose contributions to athletics have been made at the provincial, national, and international levels. The SSHFM also preserves sport history and educates the public on sport in Saskatchewan life. Founded on October 31, 1966, the Hall was originally called the Molson’s Sports Hall of Fame. In 1974, its name changed to the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame, while “Museum” was added to its title in 1990. The Hall moved to two different venues before occupying the Land Titles Building in Regina as its permanent home in 1979. Since then, its collection of artifacts and sports memorabilia has grown substantially. As of the 2004 installation ceremony, 175 athletes, 122 builders, and 91 teams had been inducted into the SSHFM.
