With just days to go until the London Sport Awards 2020, supported by the City of London Corporation, London Sport are delighted to reveal the five remaining Award category partners.

The Mayor of London and BBC Radio London both return as category supporters for the second year running with support for The Sport Unites Award and The Health and Wellbeing Award respectively.

Sport Tech Hub, a tech incubator which empowers and scales early stage tech start-ups which encourage physical activity, has also re-signed to support The Technology and Innovation Award.

London Sport also welcomes two new partners for the Awards, with House of Sport backing The Community Impact Award and London Youth Games putting their name to Inspirational Young Person of the Year.

Today’s announcement means that all ten London Sport Award categories have support from business and sport sector representatives with each partner set to present their respective Award at the Guildhall on Friday night.

BBC Radio London has been a key supporter of the Awards in 2020, broadcasting the shortlist reveal and interviewing previous winners live on Eddie Nestor’s Drivetime Show back in January.

Meanwhile, House of Sport, a co-working space in the heart of London dedicated to sport and physical activity, supports the Awards for the first time as do London Youth Games (LYG).

The London Youth Games encompasses a season of events taking place over nine months including both School and Community competitions across 30 different sports with 90 different disciplines.

London Sport Event Manager, Rachel Rowe, said:

“We’re extremely grateful to all our Award category partners for choosing to support the biggest celebration of grassroots physical activity and sport in the capital.

“The London Sport Awards relies heavily on the support of all kinds of businesses to put on a fantastic event and I cannot wait to see sponsors, nominees and guests come together at the Guildhall.”

House of Sport’s Head of Operations, Kimberley Pierce, said:

“We’re so excited to be backing The Community Impact Award at this year’s London Sport Awards which has three incredible nominees doing some amazing work across the capital.

“The Awards is a fabulous evening which brings London’s physical activity and sport sector together, something we believe House of Sport can do on a daily basis with our event and office space.”
