Hall of Fame: Class of 2024

Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame moves enshrinement dates to Oct. 12-13

The 2024 Hall of Fame Class will be enshrined at the beginning of October.

SPRINGFIELD, MASS. – The Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame has announced it will move its Enshrinement Ceremonies from August 16-17 to October 12-13 to accommodate requests of the vast global basketball community amid an extensive and expanding summer schedule, highlighted by the 2024 Summer Olympics. The date change will continue to position the Hall of Fame event as a successful, well-produced standalone event not compromised by potential production conflicts.


“The Hall of Fame appreciates the input from friends across the basketball community and the recommendations of our production partners regarding a schedule adjustment for our Enshrinement Ceremonies,” said John L. Doleva, President & CEO of the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame. “We understand the importance of the burgeoning Olympic basketball events to our broader constituencies and regret any inconvenience caused by the change. This one-time move to October assures that we are best positioned to once again create a great experience for our guests and deliver viewers a first-class presentation to celebrate our esteemed Class.”

Enshrinement Weekend will begin at Mohegan Sun on Saturday, October 12, with the Tip-Off Celebration and Awards Gala. The Class of 2024 and returning Hall of Famers will then assemble in Springfield, Mass., for the annual events taking place at the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame and Springfield’s Symphony Hall on Sunday, October 13.
