Active Bradford, a partnership of organisations committed to making the Bradford district a healthier and more prosperous place to live and work, is delighted to announce that the Bradford Sports Awards will be returning in 2020 for its fifth year.
The awards celebrate the achievements and efforts of players, coaches, administrators and volunteers from across all levels of sport throughout the area in 2019 and is promised to be the biggest and best yet. The event will once again be held at the Utilita Energy Stadium, Valley Parade and will take place on Thursday 12th March 2020.
Chairman of Active Bradford, Wayne Jacobs said: “The Bradford Sports Awards celebrates the achievements and efforts of all ages and mixed abilities in the district right from volunteers, active workplaces, active schools, communities, amateur sporting clubs to the professional.
“The awards are a big celebration about everything that’s good about sport and physical activity in our district.”
Nineteen awards across four categories will recognise and celebrate the outstanding achievements of individuals, teams, volunteers and organisations at every level of sport in Bradford. One of the awards on offer focuses on the accomplishments of people who have made changes to their lifestyle and now enjoy being more physically active.
Councillor Sarah Ferriby, Bradford Council’s portfolio holder for healthy people and healthy places, backs the awards: “Everyone can be inspired by the achievements of those who have previously been nominated for a Bradford Sports Award; whether it is for their personal achievement or while demonstrating great sporting success.
“We are lucky to have people representing our district at all levels of sport and in a wide range of activities.
“I am sure this year’s nominations will be of a high standard again and will encourage others to get more involved in sport in the district.”
Nominations are now open and members of the public are encouraged to nominate their club, family, school, event, coach or even workplace for the opportunity to have their accomplishments highlighted!
The nominations period is open from 16th October – 15th December and nominations can be made online at www.activebradford.com/bsa where you can also view a full list of the awards categories and criteria.
