The Omaha Sports Hall of Fame was founded in 2006 with the goal of providing a permanent place to honor individuals with strong ties to Omaha and who have achieved tremendous success through athletics. The Omaha Sports Hall of Fame honors athletes and coaches who have highly excelled on their field of play. The Hall welcomes nominations of individuals who are either originally from Omaha or have spent a significant amount of time in the community.

The Omaha Sports Hall of Fame is currently housed at the Durham Museum in downtown Omaha.

“Teaming up with the Omaha Sports Commission will allow our organizations the ability to honor athletic achievement in our community in a manner that truly acknowledges individual and team excellence.”
