New Era, New Categories.

One thing is for sure, the sports industry has changed. Business models have been disrupted and consumer behaviour has most likely changed forever.

We’re therefore searching all corners of the globe for the 7th consecutive year to uncover those organisations and individuals pushing boundaries in the industry we love. Shortlisted organisations will be revealed in September, with the winners being awarded on 7 October during Leaders Week London, where 1000+ senior industry experts will come together at the Twickenham Stadium.

To reflect the current market and future of the industry, new categories have been created this year to showcase how you are innovating and adapting. We’ve broken these down into two groups; Company Categories and Purpose Categories.

Nominations are now open, so click below to find everything you need to kick start your entry.
