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

London Sport CEO Emily Robinson said: “The London Sport Awards are our moment to truly recognize 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.”

“The City of London Corporation is proud to continue supporting the awards and working closely with London Sport. This annual event celebrates organizations and individuals across the capital who are improving the lives of Londoners through sport.”
