The Premiership Rugby Hall of Fame was launched in 2013 at a prestigious dinner at London’s Hurlingham Club.

The Hall of Fame initially included Premiership Rugby’s Players of the Season from the start in 1997-98 and the organisation’s Director of Rugby of the Season.

In addition to those 28 players and coaches each year Premiership Rugby will appoint a distinguished panel to select an additional inductees to be honoured with a place in the Hall of Fame each year.

Each year the Dinner will raise money for chosen charities which in 2017 were Sport Relief and the RPA’s Restart Rugby.
