Nigel Black, the head of marketing for the event has reiterated that the primary role for the ceremony is to “showcase the local success stories from grass roots right up to national worldwide achievements.”

The big award is the Sports Personality of the Year sponsored by Aspire, which is  selected from all the other winners.

From amateur and sporting heroes to the leading professional competitors, the ceremony seeks to reward outstanding sportsmen and sportswomen as well as our rising young stars.
