On Thursday, the Premier League announced via its official website that the league will be launching a Hall of Fame which aims to recognise the most exceptional players to have played in England's top-flight.

"Membership of the Premier League Hall of Fame will be the highest individual honour awarded to players by the League," according to the official press release.

Hall of Fame membership will be reserved for a select group of players who featured in the league post-1992 (the Premier League era) and who have subsequently retired from the game.

"Since 1992, the Premier League has been home to world-class players who have defined generations and provided us with compelling football season after season," Premier League Chief Executive Richard Masters said.

"A place in the Premier League Hall of Fame is reserved for the very best. It will be an occasion for our fans around the world to look back over the years and help us celebrate some truly exceptional playing careers.

The EPL revealed that the first two inductees will be revealed on Thursday, 19 March, and that a further roll of nominees will be made available for public voting for the Premier League Hall of Fame 2020.
