Do you know a person, group or organisation that has recently used the positive power of sport to make a real and lasting difference in their community?
If so, then you need to know about the Barclays Community Sports Award!
This new award is a partnership between Barclays Spaces for Sports, the Premier League’s Creating Chances programme and the Football Foundation and has been set up to recognise the outstanding achievements of individuals and groups that use sport to benefit communities across the UK.
The accolade will be awarded each month during the Barclays Premier League season alongside those for Barclays Player and Manager of the Month, to highlight the great efforts being made by many within community sport.
Each monthly winner will receive £1,000 for their group or organisation, a limited edition trophy and will be entered into the end of season award to win a further £5,000, all donated by Barclays Spaces for Sports.
The end of season award winner will also receive a VIP trip to London to be presented with their award from former England footballer Gareth Southgate, who will head up the judging panel for the award.
