THE OFFICIAL SHORTLIST IS AVAILABLE TO READ IN FULL HERE.
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 features 18 chances to lift a trophy, with new categories included this year to reflect the ever-changing dynamic of the sporting world – all of which have emerged following a summer of dialogue and consultation.
The Official Shortlist of the Sport Industry Awards 2020 has now been revealed, highlighting an industry rich in creativity and innovation that has used an incredibly successful sporting year to bring about new collaborations, ground-breaking achievements and entrepreneurial invention.
In a year that saw Eliud Kipchoge become the first human to break the two-hour marathon mark, the England Men’s Cricket Team take home the ICC Cricket World Cup in dramatic fashion, and the England Women’s Football Team and England Men’s Rugby Team reach new heights at respective World Cups, the Official Shortlist reflects the creativity that these opportunities offered, and the agile and exciting brains behind the campaigns that brought them to life.
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.
