2023 BC Rugby Hall of Fame Nominations Extended
The BC Rugby Hall of Fame was established in 2005 to honour individuals and teams who, through their commitment to excellence, left a profound legacy on the development of Rugby in British Columbia. Since then, 49 individuals and two teams have been inducted into the Hall of Fame.
The 2022 Inductees will be celebrated at the 2023 BC Rugby Hall of Fame Ceremony, slated for June 2023, alongside the 2023 Inductees. This will mark the first BC Rugby Hall of Fame Event since 2020. There was no ceremony in 2021 due to the global pandemic.
Nominations have been extended for the 2023 BC Rugby Hall of Fame. Nominations for induction into the BC Rugby Hall of Fame “Class of 2023” will be accepted until 11:59pm on Friday, March 31, 2023, before being presented to the BC Rugby Hall of Fame Selection Committee for deliberation.
Being inducted into the BC Rugby Hall of Fame is a prestigious honor and all nominations require serious deliberation by the BC Rugby Hall of Fame Committee.
