2nd December



The Brewery,




We are delighted to announce that The SJA, in association with the National Lottery, is once again gathering to celebrate the successes and achievements of the British sporting year. The awards will honour the Sportsman, Sportswoman and Sports Team of the year as well as the many other sporting achievements of 2021. 

Last year was the first year since the awards began in 1949 that journalists, athletes and people from across the sporting industry were not able to meet in person and we held the awards via a virtual ceremony. This year we are pleased to be back to a more traditional British Sports Awards and looking forward to seeing colleagues and friends once again.

This year will be the 72nd SJA British Sports Awards, making this event the longest running annual celebration of the nation’s sporting achievements. The awards bring together leading figures in sports journalism, media, and sport.

The awards ceremony will take place at The Brewery in Central London on Thursday 2nd December. The event starts at 1200 with a champagne reception, followed by lunch and the Awards hosted by Jim Rosenthal. The awards are expected to finish at 1600.

The Sky and Kick It Out have partnered for a new equality and inclusion award at the British Sports Awards.  

The Sky | Kick It Out award for equality and inclusion will recognise an individual or organisation within sport that has led the fight against racism and discrimination while promoting equality and inclusion in sport and wider society

Tony Burnett, CEO of Kick It Out, said: "As much as it is important for us all to highlight some of the issues impacting sport, we must also celebrate those striving to positively change it.

"Kick It Out is proud to support this award, and we hope recipients of it will inspire others to take up the fight for equality and inclusion, both in sport and society."
