Kids Encyclopedia Facts

The Sports Hall of Fame of New Jersey was established in 1988 to honor athletes, teams, events and contributors associated with the state of New Jersey. There is currently no physical site or structure for the hall, but its members are honored with plaques that are displayed at Meadowlands Arena — in the Meadowlands Sports Complex — in East Rutherford.

The first group of members was inducted in May 1993. Inductees are honored in a public ceremony that takes place during New York Giants football games.
