Entries for the Evening Express’ annual celebration of Aberdeen’s sports community are open now – with the 2024 ceremony scheduled to take place at P&J Live on March 7.
Bounty Competitions have generously agreed to sponsor the latest instalment of Aberdeen Sports Awards, where people involved in sport at both the elite and grassroots level – some who may be unsung heroes – will be recognised.
Evening Express editor Craig Walker said: “We’re ecstatic to be launching another edition for Aberdeen Sports Awards – with entries now open.
“The 2023 ceremony was a fantastic evening and – as we do every year – we’ll be trying to top it this time around!
“Sport is vital in our communities and comes with a myriad of benefits to people’s physical and mental health, and Aberdeen sporting success stories – at local level or on the world stage – must be celebrated.
“In March, we will once again celebrate the elite and grassroots athletes, coaches, volunteers and clubs who populate Aberdeen’s sporting landscape, as well as the projects which break down barriers to athletic activity, and more.
“Get nominating – and I hope to see many of you there to celebrate with us at P&J Live on March 7.”
Bounty Competitions’ Leanne and Calvin Davidson said: “We are delighted to be sponsoring Aberdeen Sports Awards.
“We are really looking forward to meeting everyone on the night and want to wish everyone the best of luck.”
The Active Aberdeen Partnership – which includes Sport Aberdeen – are once again supporting Aberdeen Sports Awards.
