Memphis Sports

 EXPERIENCE & Hall of Fame

The Memphis Sports Experience & Hall of Fame is a collaboration between Memphis Tourism and the Memphis Redbirds organization and is being led by two divisions of Memphis Tourism – the Memphis Sports Council and Memphis Management Group. This Bicentennial Legacy Project, created in 2019, will open this year at AutoZone Park in Downtown Memphis.  The Experience will be a free attraction to those attending events at the Ballpark and will be accessible year-round.

Our MISSION is to honor our area’s top athletes, coaches, administrators, and contributors by utilizing an innovative approach to educate our audience about the rich history of athletics in Memphis. 

Our VISION for the future is to serve as a vehicle to educate Memphis area youth on the value of athletics and the lessons learned through sportsmanship, teamwork, dedication and a healthy lifestyle. 

Join us in creating the Memphis Sports Experience and Hall of Fame and realizing our aspirations to honor the individuals and moments that make the Memphis Sports story so unique.
