Important Information: Changes to The Leaders Sports Awards 2020

2020 is going to look a little different for The Leaders Sports Awards. Due to the ongoing social and economic challenges being faced across the sports industry, and following consultation with our partners and the Leaders network, we’ve decided it just wouldn’t feel fitting to hold a black tie evening at the Natural History Museum in October as planned. We’ll now be showcasing work digitally throughout October and during Leaders Week London.   

The mission of The Leaders Sports Awards hasn’t changed, for the 6th consequent year we’re still looking to showcase the most innovative companies and people driving this industry forward. To facilitate this during these times, the criteria for each category has been tweaked slightly to reflect the current situation, with the nomination extended to Friday 17 July 2020 (23:59 BST).
