Nominations open for London Sport Awards

LONDON, UK | London Sport has confirmed the return of the London Sport Awards, with nominations now open for the 2023 edition of the prestigious event.

The London Sport Awards, supported by the City of London Corporation, recognise and celebrate the unsung heroes of the grassroots sport and physical activity sector who are helping Londoners lead healthier, happier and more active lives.

Nominations open today, Tuesday 4 October 2022, and will close at midnight on 6 November 2022.

There are ten award categories and information about how to nominate an individual or organisation is available at London Sport Awards - London Sport.

Returning in March 2023, the London Sport Awards ceremony will once again be held at London’s historic Guildhall. Each year, the event presents the stories of the incredible individuals and organisations whose outstanding work is helping London become a more active city.

London Sport CEO Emily Robinson said: The London Sport Awards are our moment to truly recognise the incredible effort and commitment put in by so many across the capital to promote sport and physical activity.

“Last year’s Awards focused on the impact the pandemic had on the sector and celebrated those that found a way to drive an active London. Whilst the effects of Covid-19 still remain, we now face new challenges such as the cost of living crisis and the detrimental effects that it is having on activity levels. However, we know there is a real passion in the capital for delivering sport, breaking down barriers and making sport and physical activity accessible for all communities and backgrounds.

“We can’t wait to learn more about these stories during the nominations period and encourage everyone helping to make a difference to nominate themselves or others.”
