We always welcome information on new statue projects and those in situ but missing from our database. Please email details to

Please note that we are only interested in permanent figurative statues of sportsmen and women; not in busts or statuettes, nor statues of equine or canine sports stars such as racehorses or greyhounds. Statues can be from any type of publicly accessible or visible location, and from anywhere in the world. For more detail please see our inclusion critera. The basic information we are seeking for any statue is as follows:

  • The name of the subject;
  • The sport they participated in;
  • The date of unveiling;
  • The sculptor(s);
  • The material(s);
  • The location, ideally as a googlemap URL;
  • The inscription on the statue, plinth or plaque;
  • One or more photos of the statue, preferably with stated permission to use them on this website. Images need to be of width greater than 400 pixels and ideally in portrait orientation;
  • Links to media coverage of the statue and if present, the statue organising committee.
