In honor of celebrating 25 years of the Orlando Magic franchise, it was announced that the Orlando Magic are planning to create a Magic Hall of Fame that will be on display at the Amway Center.

Magic CEO Alex Martins made the announcement on Friday morning before the Magic’s home-opener game to begin the 25th anniversary season.

The hall of fame is designed to bridge the past with the future of Magic basketball, and the plans for how the exhibit will look will be on display at the Amway Center on game nights for fans to take a first look.

City of Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer and Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs were there to help celebrate this exciting moment along with honoring Magic Senior Vice President Pat Williams. He was the man who, along with original owner Jimmy Hewitt, was influential in the NBA picking Orlando as an expansion franchise.

The Magic and fans can look forward to celebrating people who have been with the franchise for years, players that will eventually be inducted and the retirement of jersey numbers too.
