Each year we launch an annual sustaining fund campaign to help finance the important work of preserving, celebrating and showcasing the history of sport in Manitoba. Read below to learn more about this important archival work and how you can be apart of preserving our province’s sport history.
Without institutions like the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame, our province would struggle in being able to tell multimedia stories regarding the history of amateur and professional sports in Manitoba. It is through these stories that the next generation of athletes find the motivation to pursue sports, thereby creating future provincial, national and world-wide heroes.
The Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame is the most comprehensive collection of sports memorabilia in the province, covering nearly 60 athletic disciplines as well as the stories of over 450 athletes and more than 150 teams. These numbers alone demonstrate the important role sports have played, and continue to play in shaping Manitoba’s history, and in order to continue to tell these stories, we require financial backing to support the Hall of Fame and its educational staff.

By contributing to the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame, you’re helping put Manitoba and its athletes on the map by providing Canadian and international visitors with a taste of our athletic accomplishments .
