History

The Steelers Hall of Honor honors former players, coaches, and front office personnel who were integral in helping to make the Steelers into one of the winningest teams in all of sports.

The Steelers announced the formation of the Hall of Honor on August 1, 2017 and then announced the inaugural class on August 29. That class will be formally inducted in November.
