Hall of Fame Process

The MSSHF has been in existence since 1997 and wants to thank everyone participating in the nomination process.

The nomination for induction is extremely important. Please read the following carefully to comply with the selection guidelines.


Any Massachusetts State Soccer affiliate may nominate any individual and/or entity, living or deceased, to be considered for induction into the Massachusetts State Soccer Hall of Fame. Individuals or entities may be nominated including but not limited to for the following categories: competition (player and/or team), administration, managing/coaching, media, and officiating (including instructing and assessing). Nominations should focus on accomplishments.


Individuals and/or entities nominated for selection to the Massachusetts State Soccer Hall of Fame must have had a significant influence in Massachusetts for at least 20 years and must have made an outstanding contribution to soccer in the state, the USA, or the world exhibiting integrity, sporting conduct, and character.


All nominees go through a screening process. Decisions are made by the MSSHF Committee and the Massachusetts Adult State Soccer Executive Directors.

For nominations to be considered, the nomination form must be filled completely and accurately. Nominations must be typed or printed legibly on the nomination form and returned to the MSSHF not later than November 1 of each year. The 
nomination form can be downloaded here and reproduced (font size no smaller than 10 pt). Attachments can be letters of support, articles, and documents related to the nominee’s achievements and contributions.

All nominations forms will remain on file with the MSSHF for a period of 5 years. If a nominee has not been selected for induction during this time frame, the individual and/or entity may be re-nominated.
