ENTRIES FOR THE SPORT INDUSTRY AWARDS 2020 ARE NOW CLOSED. FOR ANY FURTHER QUESTIONS REGARDING ENTRIES,
The Sport Industry Awards celebrate the immense work done behind-the-scenes of the sport sector, honouring the clubs, teams, brands, agencies and innovators that ensure the industry continues to move forward and excel.
Driven by industry feedback, the Sport Industry Awards 2020 will now feature 18 chances to lift a trophy, with new categories included to reflect the ever-changing dynamic of the sporting world – all of which have emerged following a summer of dialogue and consultation.
Among the new categories for 2020 are the Sport Event Coverage Award [replacing 2019’s Media Content Award] and the Creative Content Award [replacing 2019’s Film Content Award], both of which have been developed to honour and award fields of the industry that are changing at a rapid pace.
Elsewhere, changes have been made to respective titles and criteria of a number of Awards to add further clarity and coherence, including the unveiling of the Fan Engagement Award [replacing 2019’s Fan or Community Engagement Award], the Data and Business Impact Award [replacing 2019’s Data and Insight Award], and the Innovative Brand of the Year in association with Wiggin [replacing 2019’s Brand of the Year].
The night itself, meanwhile, will once more be expertly hosted by former international footballer Alex Scott and TV personality Mark Durden-Smith, who have overseen the evening across the previous two editions and are ready to welcome a string of celebrities to the incredible celebration.
Last year high-profile attendees at the ceremony in London included England and Manchester City star Raheem Sterling, England Manager Gareth Southgate, former Prime Minister Tony Blair, Baroness Valerie Amos, Britain’s most decorated Olympian Dame Katherine Grainger, swimming sensation Adam Peaty, racing’s Sir AP McCoy and rising athletics star Laura Muir.
