Hall of Fame (HOF) Committee of the Chinese Basketball Association drew a meeting on Thursday, determining that the first admission scale will consist of 25 HOF members and one collective selection.

The nomination scope of the HOF covers athletes, coaches, referees, special contributors, pioneers, collectives and others.

Different criteria are set for each category. For instance, an athlete needs to have retired for more than five or more years and meet certain honor requirements, while coaches are required to have at least 20 or more years of coaching experience.

Except for 15 tenured inductees, seven athletes and three coaches will go through the stages of nomination, recommendation and final review to be approved in the first HOF selection.

The "Outstanding New China Basketball 50" which was honored based on China's basketball outstanding contribution award holders will be selected as the first HOF collective, and the members of the 50 remain the opportunities to be nominated as individual HOF inductees.

"Through the efforts of several generations, we have a mission to build a cultural hall at the top of Chinese basketball, which is the Chinese Basketball Hall of Fame," Yao Ming, chairman of the Chinese Basketball Association emphasized.

"Initialing a systematic project like HOF can be very challenging, but we must solve the problems with openness and earnestness. We also look forward to mobilizing the society to participate in building up the HOF."
