Call for Sports Awards nominations

Thu, 30 Nov 2023

Sports fans are being invited to submit their nominations for the annual Isle of Man Sports Awards.

In total, there will be 12 categories, including sportsman and sportswoman of the year, and all nominees must be Manx or have lived on the Isle of Man for at least two years.

People have three weeks to submit their recommendations online or by emailing iomsportsawards@gov.im before December 21, when a shortlist will be drawn up.

The winners will be announced at a gala ceremony at the Villa Marina in Douglas on February 28. The awards are being staged three weeks earlier than normal to enable more athletes who are based off-Island to take part and tickets will go on sale in the New Year.

The categories are:

  • Sportsman of the Year
  • Sportswoman of the Year
  • IOM Sports Ambassador
  • Under-21 Sportsman of the Year
  • Under-21 Sportswoman of the Year
  • Disability Sportsperson of the Year
  • Veteran Sportsperson of the Year
  • Sports Administrator of the Year
  • Sports Coach of the Year
  • Sports Team of the Year
  • Lifetime Achievement
  • The Leonie Cooil Courage & Inspiration Award

Sarah Corlett, Isle of Man Sport’s Executive Chairman, said: “The annual awards ceremony is a fitting way to celebrate the many achievements of the island's  athletes and those many people who get involved through coaching, officiating, organising and participating, over another action-packed year. We're very fortunate to have such a talented and supportive sporting community and the awards not only recognise those competing but those that help them to achieve.”

Last year TT star Conor Cummins and eventing World Champion Yasmin Ingham took the top honours.
