The event recognises the area’s sporting ambassadors including athletes, coaches and administrators.

The gala awards ceremony will take place on Friday 2nd November in the Lodge Hotel in Coleraine.

The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council Councillor Brenda Chivers said: “We are looking forward to a fantastic evening of celebration which puts the area’s sporting successes firmly in the spotlight. Awards will be presented across a diverse range of categories so if you know about a deserving sportsperson or team please get involved with our nomination process and share their story with us.”

Regional heats supported by the local Sports Councils will take place in Ballymoney, Coleraine, Limavady and Moyle prior to the main event.
