The National Lacrosse League Hall of Fame was established on June 16, 2005. The National Lacrosse League (NLL) has 7 teams in the United States and 3 in Canada. The NLL's board of governors will vote in the hall of fame members based on the individual’s record, ability, integrity, sportsmanship, character and contributions to the team or teams that individual was affiliated with or the league. The league will also have contributions of journalists and broadcasters inducted into the Hall of Fame.
Currently, there is no building or location associated with the NLL Hall of Fame. The Hall is maintained by the NLL based in New York City.
