The Hall of Fame is housed at The National Football Museum in Preston, England. The Hall aims to celebrate and highlight the achievements of top English Footballers and Footballers who have played in England. New members are added each year, with a ceremony described as the Oscars of English Football being held in October.

Members of the Hall of Fame are selected by a panel made up of some of the biggest names in the game including Sir Alex Ferguson, Sir Bobby Charlton and Gary Lineker. To be considered for induction players/managers must be 30 years of age or older and have played/managed for at least 5 years in England. The only exception to this rule is Duncan Edwards, who died at the age of 21 in the Munich air disaster (but had played for 5 years with Manchester United).

The Hall honours many top footballers from history and is on permanent display at the National Football Museum. A book, "Hall of Fame, Football’s Greatest Heroes: The National Football Museum Hall Of Fame", was published in October 2005 by Robson Books.
