BBC Sports Unsung Hero Award

Does someone in your club really go the extra mile? Why not nominate them for this award!

The BBC has been awarding our Sports Unsung Hero awards for a decade now, in our 15 BBC English Regions and the Nations, then an overall winner being announced at the BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year show each December.  Since 2003 those 150 Unsung Heroes have all come from a variety of backgrounds, but all had one thing in common.  They devote large parts of their lives to inspiring sports clubs and individuals across the UK.  They make it happen for no reward other than the satisfaction from helping make their sport better.

The nomination period for our 10th anniversary Unsung Hero awards is from now until the 14th October, and we’d love to see as wide a variety of nominations being made as possible.   The website is, and the twitter hashtag is #bbcunsunghero.
