A thrilling evening at the Sport Industry Awards 2021 saw the sector reunite for the first time since before the coronavirus pandemic to honour the work done in that time, as well as celebrate the resilience and vibrancy of the industry. Amongst the big winners of the night were Marcus Rashford and Barry Hearn.

Rashford received the Integrity and Impact Award in association with Dow Jones Risk & Compliance for his campaigning work to end child poverty, while Hearn was honored with the Coutts Lifetime Achievement Award, and was presented with the trophy by his son Eddie.

Also triumphing were Agency of the Year Ear to the Ground, and Young Agency of the Year Ten Toes, who both won their respective Awards for the first time.

Meanwhile, Sport England was awarded Sport Organisation of the Year in a Judges Award category. The body was honoured for its role in helping NGBs throughout the pandemic, but also scooped the Partnership Award in association with Evolution London for its work with Age UK and a host of other charities in launching the We Are Undefeated programme, which encourages both older people and disabled people to get active.

Among other winners on the night were The FA, for its Heads Up campaign, which won the Active and Wellbeing Award, and the 2.6 Challenge, which scooped Campaign of the Year in association with YouGov Sport.

The stat-studded evening saw a host of famous faces walk the red carpet and attend the event, as well as present trophies on stage to the winners. Alongside the Hearns, the likes of Maro Itoje, Tanni Grey-Thompson, Jack Wilshere, Jake Humphrey, Jeanette Kwakye, and Chelcee Grimes were all in attendance.
