Canadian Football Legends

The Canadian Football Hall of Fame and Museum (CFHOF&M) is home to 278 players and builders inductees and 87 members (365 total members) who are inducted into the Media Wing in the CFHOF&M as of 2015. From Jack Abendschan to Brian Williams, each inductee brought something to our game. The CFHOF&M first opened its doors on June 19, 1963 in Hamilton and the charter class consisted of 31 members. The building in which the CFHOF&M is located now has been opened since 1972, and is home to player and builder busts, artifacts that belong to the members, and a vast collection of images of the members. In this Virtual Exhibit, the reader can get a better glimpse of the players, builders, and members of the Media Wing, by viewing images of the members, their brief Canadian Football Hall of Fame biography, and of course their bust, which resides in the Hall of Champions at the CFHOF&M. Most notably some of our members have not won the Grey Cup or a championship in their historic career, but being a part of 365 members who are enshrined in the CFHOF&M is a great prize in itself.
