The Grand Rapids Sports Hall of Fame honors athletes, owners, and coaches from West Michigan who have achieved prominence in their sports on a local, state, or national level.

Originally founded by the Grand Rapids City Commission in 1972, the Sports Hall of Fame was reestablished in 1995 and is now housed on the upper deck of the Van Andel Arena.
Each year, a new group of inductees is selected by the Board of Trustees and honored at the Grand Rapids Sports Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. To date, there have been 131 inductees to the Hall of Fame, including former United States President, Gerald R. Ford, and former Grand Rapids Mayor, Paul Goebel, Sr.


In addition to honoring sports heroes, the Grand Rapids Sports Hall of Fame sponsors annual events in support of West Michigan athletics and supports local charities.
