The Irish Sport Industry Awards have officially been deferred until 2021. The ceremony, which recognises the valuable contribution of sport to the Irish economy each year, was due to be held in April 2020 but due to COVID-19 and public health guidelines the ceremony was postponed. The Federation have now confirmed that it will instead be deferred until 2021.

All applications that were received for the 2020 awards will be carried forward and will remain valid for the 2021 judging process. Applications will also re-open in early 2021 to allow for new entries.

We would like to thank everyone who engaged with the awards in 2020. We look forward to celebrating the contribution of sport to the economy, the brilliant work of those in the sector, particularly during these most challenging times for sport, in 2021.
