The Premier League has confirmed plans to launch its official Hall of Fame by inducting the first two retired legends.

The Premier League will officially launch the long-awaited Hall of Fame on Monday after postponing it last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The English top-flight will induct two former players into the Hall of Fame on Monday. Fans will then have the chance to vote on the other six retired stars who should join them in this prestigious list.

“The Premier League has confirmed it will launch its official Hall of Fame on Monday 19 April,” read a statement.

“The Premier League Hall of Fame will recognize and celebrate the exceptional skill and talent of players who have graced the competition since its inception in 1992.

“Entry to the Hall of Fame will be the highest individual honour awarded to players by the League.

“The Hall of Fame’s original launch date was postponed last year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“It will be launched tomorrow and will reveal two inaugural inductees, who will star in a special television program.”

 Only retired players, who played in the Premier League since its inception in 1992, can compete for the honor. Each inductee will also get a personalized medallion, with the year of their induction engraved on it.
