2020 Victorian Sport Awards
The State Government of Victoria and Vicsport are pleased to announce the Victorian Sport Awards have been rescheduled to Wednesday 6 October, 2021.
Originally planned to be held at Marvel Stadium, lockdown restrictions mean the 2020 Victorian Sport Awards will now be held fully online.
Registration for the most prestigious night on the Victorian sporting calendar is free, allowing the entire sport and recreation industry to celebrate the efforts of individuals, organisations, clubs and LGAs during the 2020 calendar year.
The Victorian Sport Awards is the night of nights for the Victorian sporting community, an event that recognises and celebrates the achievements of our home-grown sporting heroes and legends.
Each year, the Victorian Sport Awards honours those who have made an outstanding contribution to sport in Victoria as an individual or team athletes, coaches, administrators, and volunteers from both metropolitan and regional areas in Victoria. However, with sport on a lengthy hiatus through most of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s Awards will be presented slightly differently.
Eight awards will be honoured with a focus on initiatives and innovations, seven of which can be nominated by the Victorian sporting community in addition to the most prestigious award of the night, the Victorian State Government Outstanding Contribution to Victorian Sport Award.

• Love the Game Volunteer of the Year

• VicHealth Active Recreation Initiative of the Year
• Sport Group Peter Norman Inclusion Award
• Involve Group Outstanding Media Coverage of Sport Award
• Sports Accounting Australia Sport Initiative of the Year - NEW
• Victorian State Government Outstanding Contribution to Victorian Sport
2020’s inaugural award, the ‘Sports Accounting Australia Sport Initiative of the Year’ will specifically celebrate the innovative initiatives that sports produced during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.
