Vote for your Sporting Champions in Mid Ulster!

Do you know someone who has excelled in sports in your area?

Or perhaps a coach has excelled as a sports leader or has gone above and beyond to help make your team or club a success?

Whether it is someone you admire for their passion in sport, or someone who has inspired you, instilled great confidence in you or your child, or perhaps given up a lot of their free time to help in a sports club, then it’s time to celebrate and award our talented sportspeople, committed coaches, and dedicated volunteers behind Mid Ulster’s great sporting heroes by nominating them for an award.

We are seeking nominations from schools, sports clubs, individuals, and members of the public to nominate the sporting stars of the Mid Ulster district. There are eight different categories so make sure the dedicated sporting people of Mid Ulster are recognised for their efforts by nominating them for an award.

Organised by Mid Ulster District Council, the sports awards which will take place on Tuesday 26th March 2024, and hosted by Sports presenter and Podcaster Thomas Niblock aim to recognise and celebrate outstanding achievements in the local sports community and will acknowledge the outstanding contribution of coaches and volunteers who help build on the district’s reputation for sporting excellence.

Nominations are welcome from sports clubs, physical activity groups, schools, and members of the public across the eight award categories for teams and individuals, coaches, officials, and volunteers.

So whether you are a local club, team, school, or other sports organisation why not get involved and nominate your sporting champion now. Nominations are open now and will close on Monday 5 February 2024 at 4pm.
