The Cobourg and District Sports Hall of Fame Launches Website

The Cobourg and District Sports Hall of Fame is excited to announce the launch of its website.

Over a year in development, the website provides historical information about sports, sporting events, athletes, builders and sports facilities in Cobourg, Alderville First Nation and the townships of Alnwick-Haldimand, Cramahe and Hamilton. Users can access over 1000 pieces of memorabilia, read numerous stories of the fascinating history of local sports, watch Galloping Ghosts football games from the 1950s and listen to interviews with sports figures from the area.

Liz Basinger, Chair of the Website Committee said “There is so much sports history in our area that the project just kept getting bigger and bigger. We finally decided to just launch the website and then keep adding content.”

The website also provides information about the Cobourg and District Sports Hall of Fame and how to submit a nomination for induction.

To explore the website, go to www.cdshf.ca

If you have any items that you would like to Add or Share with the CDSHF, please use the TELL US Form located HERE to share your stories and upload items of interest.
