The National Lacrosse League invites fans to suggest candidates for the next round of nominations for the NLL Hall of Fame. Fans can submit their suggestions via the National Lacrosse League's Facebook page until Friday, June 14, 2013. The Hall of Fame selection criteria is listed below.

The league's Hall of Fame Committee will take the suggestions into consideration when putting together a list of nominees for the Hall of Fame's Class of 2013.  A final vote by the league's Board of Governors will follow as to which nominees will become the next members of the Hall of Fame.

Nominees who do not gain admission into the Hall of Fame on their first year on the ballot are automatically placed on the ballot the following season. Steve Dietrich, who was on the ballot for the second-straight year, was the lone inductee of the Class of 2012 while last year’s first-time nominees were the 1993 Buffalo Bandits along with defensemen Chris Driscoll and Regy Thorpe. The three nominees did not receive the number of votes needed but will again be on the ballot for 2013.

The NLL Facebook page can be found at Facebook.com/National.Lacrosse.League.
