Posted: Mon, 18 Sep 2017 09:59
This Wednesday, professionals, amateurs, clubs and managers alike will gather at Birmingham's iconic Edgbaston Cricket Ground for the return of one of the most hotly anticipated awards on the Birmingham sporting calendar.
The Birmingham Sports Awards reward those that have dedicated themselves to sport and have subsequently made huge strides in their event(s) over the past 12 months.
An accolade at the sports awards brings with it great prestige to an individual or club's name.
Guests on the night, who are expected to be in the hundreds, will include finalists, sponsors and some famous sporting faces.
Attendees will be welcomed to the venue with a Champagne reception, enjoy a three-course gourmet meal as well as witness the fantastic hosts of the evening in action, Olympian Derek Redmond and TV weather presenter Emma Jesson.
