Welcome to the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame

On August 14, 1967, Legislative Act 225 created the State of Alabama Sports Hall of Fame (ASHOF). The ASHOF is a magnificent state treasure, dedicated to the celebration and preservation of Alabama’s exceptional sports heritage.

Over the last forty years, the ASHOF has become the benchmark for other sports museums across the country, with over 5,000 sports artifacts elegantly displayed in the 33,000 square foot building surrounded by a 3 story pillared atrium.
