—- The biggest night in the business of football is now on the horizon with the announcement of this year’s hotly anticipated Football Business Awards 2019 shortlist.
A panel of high profile judges have worked their way through hundreds of entries to decide the cream of the crop across 17 categories covering sponsorship, marketing, community, technology, hospitality, CSR and media.
The annual awards ceremony pays tribute to the supporting businesses that assist and enable the success of the game, recognising and rewarding the remarkable off-pitch achievements of the best in the business.
Simon Burton, Co-founder of the Football Business Awards, said: “The awards are now in their eighth year running and becoming more and more difficult to win as we’re seeing the calibre of entries and the level of competition continue to grow. We’re lucky to have such a thriving and innovative football business community, without which we simply would not be able to enjoy our national game like we do. It’s important that we reward those organisations who continuously set the bar higher and higher each year.”
Gold, Silver and Bronze awards will be presented to winners across each category at a black tie ceremony from 6.30pm on Thursday 28th November at City Central at the HAC in London.
