Barclays Community Sports Awards
The Barclays Community Sports Award is a new award to recognise the outstanding achievements of individuals and groups that use sport to benefit communities across the UK. If you would like to nominate a person, group or not for profit organisation which has recently used the positive power of sport to make a real and lasting difference in their community then click here.
The accolade will be awarded each month during the Barclays Premier League season alongside those for Barclays Player and Manager of the Month, to highlight the great efforts being made by many within community sport.
All donated by Barclays Spaces for Sports, each monthly winner will receive:
- £1,000 for their group or organisation
- a limited edition trophy
- will be entered into the end of season award to win a further £5,000
The end of season award winner will also receive a VIP trip to London to be presented with their award from Gareth Southgate.
Former England footballer Gareth Southgate will head up the judging panel for the award, which is a partnership between Barclays Spaces for Sports, the Premier League's Creating Chances programme and the Football Foundation.
